On February 8, live surgery for robot-assisted radical prostatectomy was broadcast from the Almazov Centre’s OR.
Professor Mikhail Mosoyan, Medical Director of Urology and Robotic Surgery Clinic, successfully performed this complex surgery in a 61-year old patient with severe comorbidities and previous abdominal surgeries.
This is the first live broadcast organized on the urology information portal Uroweb.ru during the Conference of the Armenian Association of Urology Prostate Cancer — Surgical and Conservative Treatment that took place in Yerevan. More than 300 specialists joined the broadcast.
“Almazov Centre pioneered the robot-assisted surgery in the north-west region and particularly in Saint Petersburg in 2009. We have gained a considerable experience in robotic surgery and performed more than 1,500 successful surgeries for various conditions,” explained Prof. Mosoyan. “Rethinking the achievements of laparoscopy and transiting to a more advanced, minimally invasive, accurate robotic method of surgery make it possible to solve the most complex challenges while achieving the most effective results and passing on this experience to colleagues.”
