How do robotic procedures work in real life?

LINNC Paris 2O21 offered a glimpse into the future of interventional neuroradiology and interventional medicine in general with the first two live cases performed using robotics by the Toronto team of Prof. Vitor MENDES PEREIRA.  We join him here as he discusses their experience over the last several years from early research to performing the first in human treatment of an aneurysm in 2019 to the over 30 cases they have treated today.
 
Discover the various features, the technology and precision robotics offers, along with the obvious benefit of radiation protection for the operators. Learn about improvements in workflow and the criteria for patient selection for these robotic procedures.
 
Enter the discussion as Prof. MENDES PEREIRA speaks to the various concerns that the use of robotics engenders: What replaces the tradition of touch, the “haptic feedback”? Do we underestimate how much we use imaging? Are we as precise as we think we are?
 
How can the training of fellows – where you are letting someone else perform the operation – help in preparing for using robotics?
 
How exactly does robotics facilitate surgery? In what way does it extend the experience of the trained operator? Can robotics offer greater access to care?
The future is waiting in this discussion with Prof. Vitor MENDES PEREIRA. Catch up with it here!
