Dr. Ashwin Narasimha Sridhar on Orsi Academy.
Orsi Academy is a fantastic place to get and introduction to, and develop on robotic skills in a mentored, supportive environment. The people are very professional, approachable and friendly. An opportunity to train with world class mentors. Would highly recommend for all budding robotic surgeons.
Dr. Geertui Meganck on Robotic Surgery.
Vision of Dr. Meganck, Gynecologist OLV Hospital
"You can operate much more precisely with the robot. The view is magnified five times and is three-dimensional. Everything is thus clearly visible, even the smallest details. Moreover, the robot is very flexible.If you remove a womb using laparoscopy, you cannot manoeuvre well because you are working with long, stiff instruments. In contrast, the joints on the robot arms can turn at 360° and you can get completely behind the womb, through which you are able to remove very large wombs very easily. After a classical hysterectomy patients have to remain in hospital about five days. After an operation with the robot you can go home after two to three days. Furthermore, patients experience less post operative pain, which means they are able to return to work sooner. And last but not least: at the same time, the operation is a lot safer. In this manner, thanks to a better view, the chance is far smaller that the bladder and the ureter are touched."
