Prosurgics’ robotic surgery products are assisting surgeons in an increasing number of specialities, and an expanding number of hospitals. Using our products, they are able to provide better outcomes for their patients in terms of shorter recovery times, reduced pain, smaller scars and fewer complications. Here are some of the areas where you are most likely to encounter Prosurgics working with your surgeon:

Cardiothoracic surgery
Prosurgics’ EndoAssist enables surgeons to perform an increasing number of heart and chest operations using keyhole techniques. Conventionally, operations on the heart such as a coronary artery bypass (CABG), or repair of the heart valves, require a very large chest incision and in many instances the surgeon has to break the breast bone (sternum) or ribs in order to gain access. Minimal access surgery enabled by EndoAssist involves only small incisions, and avoids the necessity to break any bones. The patient benefits include very much shorter length of stay in hospital and convalescence, significant reductions in post-operative pain, and much reduced scarring.

Prostate Disease (Urology)
Prostate cancer is now the most common form of cancer affecting men in the USA and many other countries. EndoAssist is being used to assist in performing a procedure called “laparoscopic radical prostatectomy”. This uses a minimally invasive (keyhole) approach to remove a patient’s cancerous prostate gland. There are important benefits of a keyhole approach over conventional surgery. Replacing the traditional 10-25cm incision by 5 small punctures provides important cosmetic benefits to the patient, and much faster recovery time. Perhaps of even more importance, a number of studies around the world have pointed to reduced levels of urinary incontinence and erectile dysfunction (impotence) side effects.

Gall Bladder Surgery and Hernia Repairs (General Surgery)
An increasing proportion of these techniques are now being performed through small incisions with the endoscope being held and moved by Prosurgics’ EndoAssist. Keyhole surgery means that you will have a much shorter stay in hospital (perhaps not even an overnight stay for gall bladder surgery), and much less pain and scarring.


Obesity Surgery

It is well recognised that people who are extremely overweight (morbid obesity) suffer a much greater risk of developing diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure. Surgical treatment of obesity can offer significant benefit where other approaches have been unsuccessful. There are two recognised operations: gastric banding, and gastric bypass; in both instances the surgery reduces the size of the stomach so reducing the amount of food that can be eaten before feeling full. EndoAssist is used in minimally invasive (keyhole) approaches to these operations. Keyhole surgery shortens the recovery and in-patient time, reduces the size of the abdominal scar, and has less associated pain.
