At the Gemelli, the first urological intervention by the robot surgeon Hugo

-

The first urological performance of the Hugo robot in Italy at the Gemelli Polyclinic in Rome. A 62-year-old man underwent an operation to remove prostate cancer, as happens to many patients in Italy every year, but in this special case for the use of the robot. The sixty-year-old is fine and has already returned home. This ‘first’ is signed by Professor Pierfrancesco Bassi, director of the Uoc of Urological Clinic of the Agostino Gemelli Irccs University Hospital Foundation, full professor of Urology at the Catholic University, Rome campus. Robotic surgery in urology – explains Gemelli – has been an established reality for many years, but it has never really taken off, because it is held back by high costs. But the benefits of this approach are too many to ignore and more and more surgeons are grappling with the console of these robots, to the benefit of their patients. To give this discipline an impulse, the only strategy is to make it more ‘democratic’ or more accessible on the cost front. Which is then the proposal of Hugo, the latest robot-surgeon developed by Medtronic. “We finally have a system – underlines Bassi – which offers the same operational potential of the technologies currently on the market, with a reduction in costs. And the significance of this goes far beyond the purely economic aspect. Equipment such as these have the potential to open and extend these techniques to even the smallest hospitals and therefore to offer the advantages of robotic surgery to a wider audience of patients “. The instrument is new, the technique is not. Robotic surgery in urology has been around for years and is now a fact. “Today a good 50% of interventions for urological pathologies – explains Bassi – can be performed with the robot, which provides a series of advantages compared to traditional surgery: less invasiveness, better surgical detail and reduced hospitalization for the patient. Urology is , among all, the discipline most suited to robotic surgery; in fact, we are the industry leaders in terms of the number of operations “. Of course, he adds, “the current Drgs are not yet aligned with the robotic surgery revolution. But we hope that the expansion of the use of robotic surgery will soon lead the Ministry of Health to make this therapeutic approach, destined to extend, even more accessible. more and more “. For the robot surgeon, the most widespread indication in the urological field is radical prostatectomy for the treatment of prostate cancer, which is the first cancer in order of frequency in males, accounting for 19% of all male cancers in the our country (about 36 thousand new diagnoses were estimated in 2020). “Carrying out this intervention in robotic surgery – highlights Bassi – offers those benefits that fall within the concept of ‘personalized medicine’, that is the possibility of treating the tumor according to the characteristics of the tumor itself and of the patient, almost like a tailor who makes the suit to measure. Currently, robotic surgery is able to satisfy situations of major surgery in the urological field “. The Gemelli will be Hugo’s training center for other Italian surgeons.
