robotic surgery

Da Vinci robotic surgery systems consist of a surgical console, an internal vision system (a system consisting of a camera, optics, and light source screen) and a robotic turret. On the console where the surgeon is located, there is an enlarged, high-resolution 3D image of the operating field with the control area where the movements of the robotic arms are managed. The robotic turret consists of 3 or 4 robotic arms. There are 3D robotic telescopes in the central arm, and 8 mm robotic surgical instruments in the second, third, and fourth arms. There are two control units for the camera, video sync (Video Sync), air blower (CO2 inflator) and additional screens for assistants in the interior vision system. The two images provided by the right camera and the left camera are combined into the operating field on the screen and displayed on the console. Thus, a three-dimensional image is obtained. The robotic arms broadly mimic the same movements that a surgeon performs on the machine.

Advantages of robotic surgical systems

In contrast to the two-dimensional image provided by modern laparoscopic systems (the system that monitors the inside of the abdomen using an optical device), robotic systems provide a continuous three-dimensional image and a sense of depth, especially for surgeons accustomed to open surgery.
While standard laparoscopic equipment provides the surgeon with four degrees of freedom of movement, modern robotic systems provide seven degrees of freedom of movement for human hand and wrist movements.
In contrast to standard laparoscopy, the hand-eye axis is the target in the robotic system.
Thanks to the device, the surgeon performs the surgery in a more comfortable position.
Thanks to tremor filtering (tremor reduction) in the automated system, tool movements are easier and more accurate.

Robotic surgery in the hospital

Robotic surgery has been performed at the hospital since 2008. Between 2008 and 2018, more than 2,500 robotic operations were performed. They are effectively used in urology, gynecology, obstetrics and general surgery.

Oncology at Omraniye Training and Research Hospital

Cancer is an important health and life problem that is increasing in frequency in the world and in Turkey. It is the second most life-threatening disease after cardiovascular disease. The most common types of cancer are breast, thyroid, intestine and uterus in women, lung, prostate, intestine, bladder and stomach cancer in men.

Diagnosis and treatment of cancer must be carried out in a multidisciplinary manner in collaboration with several disciplines. Medical oncology is one of the most important of these disciplines, dealing with chemotherapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy, and endocrine therapy applications, which means treating cancer with drugs. In the treatment of cancer, chemotherapy, drugs, targeted smart molecules, hormonal therapies, immunotherapy and biological therapies are implemented.

General mechanisms of action of the treatments:

Chemotherapy means treating the tumor with drugs. It is a very important part of tumor treatment along with surgery and radiotherapy. With chemotherapy, cancer cells are killed or an attempt is made to stop tumor growth. Sometimes one drug and sometimes several drugs are given by giving them in different ways.

Immunotherapy and similar therapies aim to activate components of the body's immune system against cancer cells to control the cancer cells.

Targeted therapies are treatments used to prevent disorders that cause cancer to form or grow.

Endocrine therapies are treatments aimed at reducing certain hormones (such as estrogen and testosterone) that are needed for cancer cells to divide and survive.
