TECHNICAL ACHIEVEMENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL FRANKFURT
Based on the fact that this clinic is one of the best, in terms of technical equipment in the world, the latest developments and techniques for the treatment of various diseases are applied here.
Among the main technical equipment of this University Hospital are: gamma scalpel and the Da Vinci robot system.
Gamma scalpel is an ultramodern radiosurgical unit, which can successfully treat oncological, vascular and functional brain pathologies without craniotomy. Trauma due to such operations is reduced to a minimum and the patient’s rehabilitation period is shortened.
Da Vinci is a new generation surgical system. This device is suitable for conducting the most complex surgical interventions through 3-5 small incisions up to a couple of centimeters long. At the same time, healthy tissues are not damaged and the volume of blood loss is significantly reduced.
The recovery period of the body is reduced to half. It is important that to work with such a surgical system, a high qualification of the doctor is needed, therefore the da Vinci robot is used only in some clinics of the world.
