The specializes in complex oncology of kidney, prostate, urinary and testicular tumours, at Sheba Medical Center, said that the use of robotic surgery is increasing in the world because of its advantages, which he summarized in obtaining 3D images, the patient does not lose a lot of blood, making the surgeon perform fewer tasks and tracking the course of the surgery and sharing it with the largest number of surgeons and stakeholders.

The doctor added that the patient can leave the hospital one or two days after the surgery, unlike the surgeries that require only the intervention of the surgeon, as the patient stays for more than a week in the hospital under observation.

Robotic surgery is able to identify and eradicate the tumour, after entering the depth of the affected organ to identify and eradicate the tumour, according to Dr Dotan, also this modern medical technology is more accurate than regular surgical machines, and the best choice for surgeons.
