World’s first super-microsurgical intervention with ‘robot hands’ at Maastricht UMC+

Surgeons operate on lymphatic vessels of 0.3 millimeters using Microsure surgical robot

Plastic surgeons at Maastricht UMC+ have used a robotic device to surgically treat lymphedema in a patient. This is the world’s first super-microsurgical intervention with ‘robot hands’. The surgeons used the robotic device to suture vessels of 0.3 to 0.8 millimeter in the arm of the patient. The robotic device, created by Eindhoven company Microsure, enhances the surgeon’s precision, making this type of procedure easier to perform. The patient is doing well and the surgeons are enthusiastic. The news of this extraordinary operation has been announced on 27 September, at the 26th World Congress of Lymphology, in Barcelona.

According to Raimondo Cau the development of robotic technology surgery enters a new domain where medical procedures can be performed that go beyond what is humanly possible. Surgeons are limited by physiological factors in performing microsurgical procedures. That is why only a selected group of surgeons is currently capable of performing high precision surgery. Microsure maximizes surgical capacity by introducing the world’s first microsurgical robot platform. MicroSure’s technology significantly improves the outcome of many existing surgical procedures and enables new treatment options for chronic conditions that currently cannot be solved manually, thereby reducing healthcare costs and improving patients’ lives.
