The importance and uses of robots in medicine
The medical robot performs the surgery using very small tools attached to a robotic arm, the surgeons control the robotic arm with a computer, The surgeon sits at a computer station, He directs the movements of a robot and small surgical tools are attached to the robot’s arms.
Surgical robots allow the surgical operations to be carried out with greater precision than an unaided human surgeon, where it allows the surgeons greater access to areas under the operation using more precise and less invasive methods.
The surgeons make small cuts to insert the instruments into the body, then a thin tube with a camera attached to the end of it (endoscope) it allows the surgeons to view enlarged 3-D images of the body as the surgery is taking place.
Medical robot matches the doctor’s hand movements to perform the procedure using the tiny instruments, The surgery is done without making large cuts, The surgical cuts are smaller than with traditional open surgery, it has less pain, less risk of infection, and less bleeding.
The surgical cuts are faster in recovery, it has smaller scars, and the patient will stay a shorter time in the hospital, Using medical robots will reduce the hospital stays, it will improve the patients’ prognoses and it will save costs.
Using medical robots reduce patient pain, they minimize the need for more medication and longer hospital stays, allowing the person to return home and start therapy sooner.
Medical robots have revolutionized the speed and efficiency of health care services in several parts of the world, The successful surgery patients have therefore reported smaller incisions, less blood, pain and trauma and faster healing time than regular surgery.
