On the morning of September 9, a robotic surgical system named Da Vinci, controlled by Yang Hongji, director of the organ transplantation center of the Sichuan Provincial People’s Hospital, finished its first operation of minimal invasive cholecystectomy at the hospital. To shorten the recovery time of patients, the system enables surgical treatment to be more effective and less invasive.
Just taking half an hour, the operation was a complete success. “With the world’s cutting-edge technology, the robotic surgical system is the only artificial intelligence system for endoscopy-assisted surgery with less invasion to patients’ bodies,” said Yang Hongji, “it represents the top level of the robotic surgical systems in the world.”
According to Yang, the system was named after famous artist and inventor Leonardo da Vinci who raised the idea to invent a robot for surgery hundreds years ago.
