Robotic Surgery

Elevated Effectiveness and Efficiency

What is Robotic Surgery?

Robotic Surgery is advanced technology used to simplify the performance of complex procedures for doctors along with providing patients with enhanced results.

It is also referred to as minimally invasive surgery, where surgeons utilize small surgical instruments, connected to 3 or 4 robotic arms, to complete procedures through few small skin incisions.

This procedure also provides surgeons with high-definition 3D cameras that elevate the visuals and enlarge the structures of the surgical field. Through the Robotic Surgical System, surgeons will have the ability to control all robotic instruments along with the camera, leading to surgical precision, time efficiency, decreased medical costs and elevated effectiveness and efficiency in patient outcomes.

At Al Zahra Hospital Dubai, we aim to transform surgical care in the whole MENA region by utilizing the CMR’s next generation Versius Robotic Surgical System.

With the help of Cambridge-based medical device company CMR Surgical, also known as Europe’s MedTech powerhouse, we have made the Versius Robotic Solution a part of our surgical procedures, improving recovery times, patient outcomes and doctors’ performance.
