Robotic surgery is the future!

“Medical Innovations & Technologies” always monitors the ongoing projects. We sincerely appreciate the success of doctors using advanced innovative technologies to help people save lives and ensure rapid recovery.

The international reference center of robotic surgery, developed and equipped by our company on the basis of The Medical Centre Hospital of the President’s Affairs Administration of the Republic of Kazakhstan, has been successfully working for a year; specialists improve their skills and take medicine to the next level in the country. During the work of the center, more than 140 operations were performed on the TransEnterix “Senhance” surgical robotic system.


The famous American urologist David Samadi, who is a consultant to the Presidential Clinical Center, continues his work in the center together with Kazakhstani specialists.

In an interview, Dr. David Samadi and hospital director Valery Benberin talk about technological progress, surgeons, and medicine itself.

Dr.Samadi talks about why robotic surgery is one of the most humane technologies in medicine: full article on

«Я думаю, что роботизированная хирургия – это будущее, и в этом отношении пути назад нет. Весь мир движется в этом направлении. Число операций с открытыми вмешательствами в Европе и Соединенных Штатах постепенно уменьшается. Манипуляции становятся все более  миниинвазивными – говорит Дэвид Самади “.

“I think that robotic surgery is the future and there is no going back in this regard. The whole world is moving towards that direction. The number of open intervention operations in Europe and the United States is gradually decreasing. Manipulations are becoming more minimally invasive – says David Samadi”.

“The operations are performed through small incisions through which the instruments enter the patient’s body. The amount of blood loss in surgery with robotic surgical systems is equivalent to taking blood for analysis,”says Valery Benberin, Director of the Presidential Hospital, and provides more and more examples of how the robot improves the surgeon’s capabilities:

The surgeon’s hand can flinch at a crucial moment because of the human factor. When using a robotic surgical system, this risk is minimal: the system does not allow accidental movements, meaning that the rehabilitation does not take much time. The patient returns to the usual rhythm of life as quickly as possible.

For surgeries with a robotic surgical system, a patient’s hospital stay is usually reduced from an average of 7 days to 3 days. This is a serious social and macroeconomic aspect: the efficiency of hospitals increases, and the social burden on the state decreases. Therefore, the active introduction of robotic surgery is very attractive, both for the state and for the population,”concludes Valery Benberin.

At the same time, in addition to the technology intended for the operation, another robot will be installed in the hospital. His mission is instructive: this installation is located in the center of the first robotic center of the region’s surgery, where both doctors and medical students study to perform operations using the technology. There are only three such educational centers in the world: in the USA (Orlando), in Italy (Milan) and in Kazakhstan. “
