Vietnamese doctors introduce robotic surgery overseas

Doctors from Binh Dan Hospital in Ho Chi Minh City have recently visited the Philippines to perform robot-assisted sleeve gastrectomy operations, showcasing the technique to their local peers.

The trip took place at the invitation of the Manila-based Philippine General Hospital, one of the biggest of its kind in the country with 1,500 beds. The robotic surgeries were conducted on October 24 for two obese patients weighing over 130 kg each.

Doctors from Binh Dan Hospital in Ho Chi Minh City conduct a robot-assisted operation at the Manila-based Philippine General Hospital.

Surgery that uses robots is less invasive and uses smaller incisions than normal surgical methods. It reduces pain, bleeding, infections and the length of hospital stay.

The next day, the visiting Vietnamese doctors also introduced advanced robotic operating skills targeting the digestive system.

Binh Dan Hospital is a pioneer for robotic operations for adults in Vietnam. Carrying out more than 800 robot-assisted surgeries over the past three years, it is gradually turning itself into a training centre for the technology in Vietnam and Southeast Asia.
