Thanks to the generosity of GEMLUC, the Monaco business group united in fighting cancer, which raised €150,000 during its “Euros of Hope” evening on October 13, Princess Grace Hospital has acquired very special coelio-3D surgical equipment.

Presented by Dr Maurice Chazal on Wednesday, December 14, in the presence of CHPG Director Patrick Bini, this state-of-the-art equipment will allow extremely precise surgical operations thanks to three-dimensional imaging and will be used in particular for cancer and gynecological surgery. It is, to date, the only item of 3D coelio-surgical equipment on the Côte d’Azur.

Three-dimensional imaging is suitable for surgical interventions requiring extreme precision and a very good perception of space. It also provides relief viewing and facilitates better eye-hand coordination, as well as enabling surgical procedures under laparoscopy to be performed with even more precision, speed and efficiency.

For the patient, too, the advantages of this advanced technology are multiple, often enabling surgery to be considerably less invasive.
