Kuwait’s Ministry of Health utilizes cutting-edge surgical robots for cancer surgeries.

KUWAIT CITY, Oct 22, (Agencies): The Ministry of Health in Kuwait revealed yesterday the use of the latest surgical robot in the world to perform a radical prostatectomy for a patient suffering from prostate cancer. In a statement, the Ministry of Health stated that the robot, known as “Da Vinci Xi,” was used in the surgery conducted last Wednesday at the Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Kidney and Urology Center. On the same day, the “Da Vinci Si” robot was also used to perform a kidney removal surgery for another patient suffering from cancer.

The operations were conducted by Dr. Saad Al-Dosari and Dr. Ali Abdulwahab, both of whom performed the surgeries on the patients, who were discharged from the center the following day.

According to the statement, Dr. Al-Dosari mentioned that the “Da Vinci Xi” robot is one of the latest technologies applied in robotic surgical procedures and is used in various medical specialties. He emphasized that surgeries performed with this device are characterized by minimal bleeding and do not cause severe pain, as is often associated with traditional surgical procedures. Moreover, these surgeries do not require large incisions or wounds, and they lead to shorter hospital stays for patients.

Dr. Al-Dosari also pointed out that studies have demonstrated the safety of surgical procedures using robots and that more than five million robot-assisted surgeries have been performed worldwide. Since 2014, the Sabah Al-Ahmad Kidney and Urology Center has conducted over 1,500 major surgical procedures using robots. These surgeries have included radical prostatectomies, bladder and kidney removals, tumor removals, and correction of congenital defects in the pelvic region.
