Russian surgical robot successfully completed the first animal test
- Sep 20, 2018 -

The Russian Academy of Sciences and the Penza Agricultural University announced that the first Russian surgical robot developed by the Institute of Information Technology and Design of the Russian Academy of Sciences successfully completed the first animal test operation at the Peloponnes Agricultural University in Russia.


The Institute of Information Technology and Design of the Russian Academy of Sciences developed the first surgical robot in Russia in 2017. The doctor can monitor the whole process of robotic surgery through the computer console. The console can be located in the hospital or remotely operated remotely from other cities via the network. Compared with the US "Da Vinci" surgical robot, Russia's first surgical robot has been digitized and has the characteristics of miniaturization and low price.


Recently, researchers and related medical personnel completed the first animal test operation at the National Penza Agricultural University using the surgical robot. The surgical robot was the first "patient". The sow named "soft silk" removed the uterine fibroids. After 40 minutes of surgery, the doctor announced that the operation was very successful and that "Soft Silk" will have descendants.


The R&D team will conduct a large number of surgical robotic animal experiments and clinical trials. If all goes well, the mass production of the surgical robot can begin two years later. Because surgical robots have the advantages of precise operation, small wound incision, and no influence from doctors' mood fluctuations, it is widely used by doctors and patients for complicated surgery and minimally invasive surgery including laparoscopy.


At the end of the last century, the United States took the lead in launching the world's first surgical robot "Da Vinci", which achieved very good social and economic benefits. So far, more than 4,000 surgical robots have been sold worldwide, of which more than 600 are sold to Europe. There are more than 30 such surgical robots in Russia. It is expected that in the near future, Russian surgical robots will become a strong competitor of "Da Vinci".
