How to Optimize the da Vinci Xi System for Multiquadrant Surgery for Ovarian Cancer
Dr. Anupama Rajanbabu is Professor of Gynecologic Oncology at the Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences, Kochi, India. She shares her ideas about how to optimize the da Vinci Xi Surgical System robot for multiquadreant ovarian cancer surgery. Originally titled “Robotic Staging Surgery for Ovarian Cancer, Optimizing the Surgery Using da Vinci Xi.”
“Seventy-five percent of the people say- ‘Why the robot and ovary?'” claims Dr. Rajanbabu. She explains why, despite large masses and “big disease,” that using the robot can be best for patients in many cases. She talks about re-targeting the robot for different parts of a procedure, using the same ports from different angles by triangulating the target anatomy.
