Research and Development for Surgical Innovations

in Health Care Technology: Microsurgical Robotics


Overview:UTHealth Microsurgical Robotics

Laboratory designs and develops next-generation microsurgical robotic

devices for minimally invasive

surgeries. It consists of a Research and Development Team of expert engineers

and surgeons located within the heart of the Texas Medical Center in Houston,

Texas.


Mission:To develop state-of-the-art, minimally invasive microsurgical devices to perform surgical

procedures in delicate regions that cannot be reached by current technology,

such as in the brain or in small-size pediatric populations, as well as fetal

procedures. Through telerobotic capabilities, patients can be treated remotely

when living in any region of the world where special surgical procedures are

not otherwise readily accessible.


­Research: UTHealth

Microsurgical Robotics Laboratory will expand the

possibilities of robotic surgery by creating the first microsurgical robotic system delicate enough for brain

surgery, yet robust enough to perform traditional abdominal surgeries.

Telerobotic capabilities will allow surgeons from the best medical centers to

reach more patients, and provide the same quality of care to remote hospitals

around the world


The microsurgical robot features three

miniaturized instruments and one stereoscopic camera that fit into one of four

ports of the robotic arm. This allows for just one, single incision. The

robotic arm is flexible, featuring several joints, so that it moves dexterously

and precisely. Instruments can be interchanged and come in a wide selection of

specialized tip designs to enable a broad range of microsurgical operations.

The stereoscopic camera allows 3D visualization of the surgical field. Each

instrument can be sterilized and then reused later – allowing a cost effective

design. A master controller controls the robotic arm remotely. This controller

offers haptic feedback, giving the surgeon more information than current

available robotic systems. These miniaturized, dexterous tools are what give

the robotic the capability of performing highly complex procedures.
