On a 22-year-old Emirati patient suffering from a blockage in the upper region of the ureter, a specialized medical team at Dubai Hospital performed the first successful surgery using the Da Vinci Xi Surgical Robot.
The patient developed enlarged kidneys as a result of the complaint and its complications.
The obstructed segment of the ureter was removed and the ureter was reconnected to the renal pelvis during a two-hour operation performed by Dr. Yasser Ahmad Al Saeedi, Consultant, Robotic Surgeon, and Head of the Urology Department, and his colleagues.
According to the hospital, the operation went well and the patient would be discharged in a few days.
Dr. Maryam Al Raisi, CEO of Dubai Hospital, stated that the hospital prioritizes the introduction of cutting-edge technologies and smart solutions in order to provide the best level of specialized patient-centered care, in keeping with the DHA’s vision and goal.
Dr. Al Saeedi, the first Emirati surgeon to specialize in robotic surgery, describes the procedure as “a state-of-the-art surgical procedure in which the traditional laparoscopic technique is combined with high precision robotic technology to ensure minimal incision, enhanced precision, faster recovery time, and minimal post-surgery hospitalization.”
