Robotically Enhanced Cardiac Surgery


Robotic surgery, computer assisted surgery, and robotically-assisted surgery are terms for technological developments that use robotic systems to aid in surgical procedures. Robotically-assisted surgery was developed to overcome the limitations of minimally-invasive surgery and to enhance the capabilities of surgeons performing open surgery.

Major advances aided by surgical robots have been closed chest heart surgery (without opening the chest), no bone incision and superior cosmetic result.

Due to robotic use, the surgery is done with precision, miniaturization, smaller incisions, decreased blood loss, less pain, and quicker healing time. Articulation beyond normal manipulation and three-dimensional magnification helps resulting in improved ergonomics. Due to these techniques there is a reduced duration of hospital stays, blood loss, transfusions, and use of pain medication

Mini Bentall Surgery (3,2 cm)

Aortic Valve replacement, Ascending Aortic replacement, and Coronary Re-Implantation (The process of attaching the vessels feeding both hearts to the newly replaced graft) = Bentall Surgery. This complex surgery, first performed by Hugh Henry Benthall (1920-2012) in 1966, can be performed by preserving the integrity of the sternum (breast bone).

Life Energy and Biological Age Measurement

When we are not ill, we say we are “healthy”, but actually, is it true? Can we measure how healthy we are? Do we know what is inside of us, in our organs, thoughts or how we are affected by the environment and the things happening around us? How can we measure this? What do the signals coming from our body through 10 grams of a tiny chip can tell about us?
