Following the funding in 2012 of the Da Vinci Robot, thanks to donations by generous donors to the Princess Grace Hospital, Dr Maurice Chazal, Head of the Digestive Surgery Department, and Dr Hubert Perrin, Deputy Chief of Staff, wanted to organise the second edition of the Rencontres South France of Digestive Robotic Surgery here in Monaco.
This scientific meeting of the first order, which was inaugurated by Stéphane Valeri, Minister of Health and Social Affairs, gave the opportunity to several dozen digestive surgeons specialised in robotic surgery to evoke the emergence of new practices in digestive surgery thanks to the contribution of the robot, thus allowing a new orientation for this specialty.
The robot is used not only in urology, in colorectal cancer surgery, but also, in an emerging way, for complex operations of the liver and the pancreas, where the laparoscopic technique is not optimal. This is a real technological breakthrough for the physician in his operating practice. It also improves patient wellbeing through less invasive and less traumatic surgery.
Digestive surgery already represents at CHPG between 30 to 40 procedures by robot per year and is in full swing. Thanks to these measures, the Principality is at the forefront of technological progress and continues to offer excellence in care.
