PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A robot surgeon that means patients can be discharged from hospital quicker may be bought if enough funding is raised. A £1.5 million appeal called ‘Buy Addenbrooke’s a Robot’ has been launched by the Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust (ACT) to ensure patients receive quicker and less invasive surgery. Robotic surgery is a form of keyhole surgery involving small incisions where the surgeon operates on the patient by controlling a computer-enhanced robot, mimicking the surgeon’s hands and wrist movements, and allowing absolute precision. The large 3D view of the patient’s organs enables surgeons to perform many types of complex procedures with enhanced vision, greater precision, flexibility, and control than is possible with conventional techniques. It can take months to recover from traditional, ‘open’ surgery but incisions made using robotic surgery are much smaller, reducing the risk of complications and infection, minimising scarring, pain, and discomfort. Find the latest news in your area: This means that following robot-assisted surgery, patients can be discharged from hospital within a matter of days, not weeks One of the areas that will benefit is head and neck surgery which can be very invasive and where some tumours are difficult to reach. A surgeon operating a robot would be able to access the tumour through the mouth and with precision meaning that patients regain the ability to swallow much more quickly, have minimal scarring, can eat and drink without help, and need less ongoing treatment following their operation. Ekpemi Irune, head and neck consultant at Addenbrooke’s, said: “Head and neck cancer surgery can be very invasive. “Sometimes a tumour in the back of the mouth or throat cannot be easily reached so the surgeon may have to split a patient’s jaw so they can get to the tumour. “The patient has to recover in hospital for several days and they can go on to develop long term problems with bone healing, chronic pain, etc. Ekpemi Irune, head and neck consultant at Addenbrooke’s (Image: Mel Yeneralski Cambridge Media Studio) “This can be very distressing for patients. A surgical robot would be able to access tumours through the mouth with precision.” Addenbrooke’s currently only has one robot which is dedicated to treating kidney, bladder, and prostate cancer patients. ACT’s new appeal will help fund another surgical robot, revolutionising patient care across six specialities in the hospital, which could improve outcomes for 1,500 patients per year. These specialities are urology; gynae-oncology; gynaecology; lower gastrointestinal tract; ear, nose and throat (ENT); and diseases of the liver, pancreas and bile duct system. Krishnayan Haldar, consultant in gynaecological oncology, said: “Using robotic-assisted surgery has an advantage over current laparoscopic surgery because it can help us to provide much finer dissection. “For example, the surgeon can preserve the nerves to the bladder and bowel during a radical hysterectomy – a nerve sparing procedure. “The results are much better for the patient’s quality of life post-surgery.

She said having a robot surgeon available in Cambridge would be a game-changer for residents. She said: “It was really awkward for my family to come and visit me because they’re from Worcester. “If I’d been at Addenbrooke’s my family could have stayed over at my house. It was just very traumatic being in an unfamiliar place in unfamiliar surroundings and being so far away from everybody. “Only my family could visit and not my friends as it was just too far for them to come. She added: “If Addenbrooke’s had had a robot, it would have been so much easier for me and my family.” Shelly Thake, ACT CEO, said: “We hope we can once again call upon our incredible supporters to get behind our new robot appeal. “With the pressures caused by Covid, the hospital needs our help to get its surgical programme moving again and to deliver the quickest, safest surgery possible. “The robot will enable surgeons and their teams to operate on more patients, from people with pancreatic cancer to gynaecology patients, enabling them to recuperate faster and get home to their families more quickly.” To find out more or to donate or fundraise, visit helpyourhospital.co.uk/robot.
