Robotics

ab medica has always believed in technology in the medical field because it knows the potential. Robots are the best result of this awareness: they are not only machines, but day-by-day are becoming ever more extensions of the surgeon’s hands, eyesight and skills.

The development of this vanguard technology started in the 1950s in the United States, when the Pentagon produced robots to treat the war-wounded from remote locations. This use became the cornerstone of a new sector of the field of surgery: the robotics era, in which the surgeon, for the first time in the history of medicine, operates not only with his own hands, but also uses them to guide machines with now infinite potential.

Surgical robots, such as the da Vinci system, nowadays represent the highest standard for numerous types of interventions, acting as an minimally invasive treatment par excellence and promoting faster post-operative recovery for patients.
