Robotic Plastic Surgery in Singapore
If you’re looking for robotic plastic surgery in Singapore, Dr Marco has all of your needs covered.
What is Robotic Surgery?
It is a minimally invasive surgery that uses a high tech machine call the Da Vinci Surgical System.
This Da Vinci Surgical System does not have any autonomy to operate on you. It is the surgeon who will operate on you. The surgeon will be the one who will sit at the console station and operate the machine to perform the surgery.
The advantage of using this Da Vinci Surgical System is because it shows the surgeon a 3D high-resolution surgical field and allows the surgeon to operate the robotic arms with his fingers on the control button on the console station to perform the surgery in a precise and with no tremor manner. The robotic arms work even better than our human wrists, where it can bend and twist at angles that we cannot do it with our hands. The advantages are smaller incisional scars, less risk of infection and a faster recovery time with better clinical outcome.
This robotic surgery has been used by cardiac, colorectal, general surgery, gynaecology, urology, head & neck surgery
Dr Marco & His Interest in Robotic Surgery
An Inventor / Scientist that like to explore new ideas in his field of work.
Back in mid-2013, Dr Marco saw one of his gynaecology colleagues Dr Suresh Nair operating using the Da Vinci Surgical System and was amazed on how much precision this machine could handle in the surgical field.
This led to Dr Marco’s vision in enhancing and bringing his current Endoscopic Minimally Invasive Surgery Procedures to the next level by using incorporating this Robotic Systems.
Dr Marco & his Robotic Training
Dr Marco started his basic training with the help of Transmedic who is the local distributor of Da Vinci Surgical System and there are 4 phases of training. He finished his online certification with INTUITIVE SURGICAL that consist of the basic introductory information on Da Vinci Surgical System in 2014. This includes test drive, working in the Epic Centre and establishing case series planning. To complete his full training, he went to one of the 2 Asia recognized training centre; he selected to complete it in Korea and was awarded the Certification of Da Vinci System Training as a Console Surgeon in 2015.
During this journey, Dr Marco not only work very closely with his local fellow Robotic Surgeons but also presented his cases during conferences in Plastic Surgery as well as the Hernia Society on his advance work in Robotic for Plication of Muscles Aponeurotic Abdominal Wall and also published his 1st paper on Springer’s New Concepts on Abdominoplasty and Further Applications”.
Dr Marco did not just stop here. He recently went to the world-renowned STAN Institute in Nancy, France in late Jan 2017 and advanced his Robotic Skills and was awarded the Diploma in Robotic Surgery.
