First in Israel: Mastectomy performed completely by 'hands' of a robot
For the first time, a surgical team from Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center performed a mastectomy using nothing but a robot.
“This is the next thing for patients who need to undergo a mastectomy,” said Prof. Yoav Barnea, head of the Plastic and Reconstructive Breast Surgery unit at Sourasky. “The robot will allow for maximum accuracy, great aesthetic results, including preserving the original nipple, and all in just one surgery instead of at least three separate surgeries in the previous method – and with quick recovery and minimum scars.”
The surgery is done using the Da Vinci surgical system. The surgeon sits at a console and controls the robot.
