Hanyang University Hospital Achieves 500 Robotic Surgeries Annually: “A Commitment to Advancement”  Since introducing the latest version of the robotic surgery system, the "Da Vinci Xi," Hanyang University Hospital has seen a steep increase in demand for robotic surgeries.On the 7th, Hanyang University Hospital announced that it had held a ceremony on the 6th in the auditorium on the third floor of the main building to commemorate the achievement of conducting 500 robotic surgeries annually.Hanyang University Hospital launched its Robotic Surgery Center in 2008, following the acquisition of the Da Vinci system. The hospital surpassed 400 robotic surgery cases by 2012 and achieved 1,000 cumulative surgeries approximately two years after introducing the upgraded Da Vinci Si model in 2016. This recent event celebrates the performance of a total of 508 robotic surgeries across departments such as gynecology, urology, head and neck surgery, and general surgery from January to December 2023, following the introduction of the fourth-generation robotic surgery device, the Da Vinci Xi, in October 2022.The Robotic Surgery Center at Hanyang University Hospital is expanding quantitatively and leveraging its accumulated know-how to conduct ongoing research to develop sophisticated robotic surgery techniques further.Robotic surgery offers significant advantages in fields like gynecology, where the uterus and ovaries are located deep within the pelvis, and urology, where blood vessels and nerve concentration increases the risk of damage to surrounding organs and vessels. Robotic surgery reduces the likelihood of bleeding and infection by minimizing this risk. Its benefits, including less post-operative pain and faster recovery, are being utilized in a wide range of procedures, including surgeries for uterine fibroids and urologic cancers. The Department of Head and Neck Surgery is achieving excellent results by applying various surgical techniques that preserve appearance and function in the treatment of head and neck cancer and thyroid cancer. General surgery is also expanding its use of robotic surgery to minimize scars and complications in treating liver cancer, gallbladder cancer, colorectal cancer, breast cancer, gastric cancer, and hernias.Vice President Lee Hang-rak of Hanyang University Hospital stated, "The achievement of 500 annual robotic surgeries was made possible not only by our state-of-the-art robotic surgery equipment at the Robotic Surgery Center but also by the multidisciplinary collaboration among various departments. We will continue to strive to enhance patient satisfaction based on our extensive experience with robotic surgery." +82-43-713-8999, 8998, 8997 kimakorea@khidi.or.kr

Since introducing the latest version of the robotic surgery system, the "Da Vinci Xi," Hanyang University Hospital has seen a steep increase in demand for robotic surgeries.

On the 7th, Hanyang University Hospital announced that it had held a ceremony on the 6th in the auditorium on the third floor of the main building to commemorate the achievement of conducting 500 robotic surgeries annually.

Hanyang University Hospital launched its Robotic Surgery Center in 2008, following the acquisition of the Da Vinci system. The hospital surpassed 400 robotic surgery cases by 2012 and achieved 1,000 cumulative surgeries approximately two years after introducing the upgraded Da Vinci Si model in 2016. This recent event celebrates the performance of a total of 508 robotic surgeries across departments such as gynecology, urology, head and neck surgery, and general surgery from January to December 2023, following the introduction of the fourth-generation robotic surgery device, the Da Vinci Xi, in October 2022.

The Robotic Surgery Center at Hanyang University Hospital is expanding quantitatively and leveraging its accumulated know-how to conduct ongoing research to develop sophisticated robotic surgery techniques further.
