Robotic Upper Gastrointestinal SurgeryJanuary 6th, 2023
We have now started the upper gastrointestinal robotic surgery programme at St Thomas’ Hospital. This is an exciting new way to perform surgery. The instrumentation is more precise and the camera technology allows better visualisation of internal structures.
We are performing both benign and cancer operations using the Da Vinci Robot System. Some of the procedures we have done include;
- Hiatus hernia repair
- Anti-reflux operations inc. LINX
We are delighted with the results so far and have had excellent feedback from the patients. The programme will continue to expand in 2023.
