The first robotic surgery at the Pakistan Kidney and Liver Institute (PKLI) is said to have been completed successfully.
The PKLI medical staff described it as a groundbreaking development and a game-changer in the province’s medical history on Monday.
In comparison to traditional techniques, robotic surgery, also known as robot-assisted surgery, enables doctors to carry out a variety of complex procedures with greater control, precision, and flexibility.
It is frequently related to surgeries that require only small incisions and are minimally invasive. It may also be employed occasionally during various types of open surgery.
The majority of clinical robotic surgical systems, according to the experts, include a camera arm and mechanical arms with surgical instruments fastened to them.
PKLI Spokesperson Statement on This Ground-Breaking Achievement
A PKLI spokeswoman claimed that the entire team, led by Dr. Nadeem Bin Nusrat, chairman of the urology department, had made this ground-breaking achievement possible.
“This is a new level of precision and care will revolutionize the way we approach surgeries.”
The patient was able to leave the hospital a few hours after the radical nephrectomy, according to Dr. Nadeem.
The robotic surgery was performed by the highly skilled team of senior medics, including professor of urology and leading Robotic surgeon from SIUT Karachi, Dr Mohammad Rehan Mohsin, associate professor of urology from SIUT, Dr Riaz Hussain Laghari, with assistance from the team of medics from the PKLI and CMR Surgical from Dubai, Karachi and Lahore.
