The surgical robots are evolving, with leveraging newer systems and incorporating teleoperations, virtual reality training, and many more procedures.
FREMONT, CA:Surgical robots help doctors in many ways. They help in alleviating fatigue while adding procedures requiring great precision. The high cost of surgical robots has been an obstacle to adoption. Day by day, more hospitals are deciding that they're worth the investment. The robotic equipment can help surgeons perform minimally invasive operations, from which the patients can recover more quickly and efficiently than traditional procedures. Here are some of the surgery robots that are likely to change the surgical platform in the coming years.
The CorPath System
One of the significant problems for the people living in remote areas is getting access to urgent medical care, especially with a less skilled surgeon at the local hospital. Nowadays, leveraging other technologies like virtual reality with robotics helps surgeons. The doctors can practice in the virtual world before there's a patient on the operating table, which is helpful for rough and complicated procedures. VR combines with haptics to help the users get tactile feedback that brings more realism to these practice sessions.
Monarch is a surgical robotics platform that incorporates flexible robotics, micro-instrumentation, data science, and other technologies for therapeutic and diagnostic bronchoscopic procedures. Monarch platform will be the next era of medical intervention, which will enhance physicians' capabilities and enhance the clinical outcomes for patients by accessing and treating diseases through the body's natural openings.
The Mako Rio
The Mako Rio can create a 3D model of the procedure based on the patient's CT scan and offers real-time feedback as the doctors use specialty instruments. The hospital also hopes to use the surgical robot widely for hip replacements. Operations on the hips, which require surgeons to place implants inside the patients carefully, will help them eventually regain mobility. The 3D modeling component will allow the surgeons to plan each stage of the surgery before it happens.
