A precedent...performing the first robotic surgeries in Morocco and Africa✍️๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡

Yesterday, Wednesday in Casablanca, the “Oncord” group, which specializes in cancer prevention and treatment, performed the first robotic surgeries in Morocco, in a historic medical advance that is the first of its kind in the Kingdom of Morocco and Africa.

On this occasion, the President and General Manager of the Oncorad Group, Semlali Redouane, confirmed in a statement to the press that Morocco has taken a major step in the medical field by performing the first robotic-assisted surgical operations, and that these interventions represent an important turning point in the development of surgical practices in the country.

He said that “this is a big day for surgery in Morocco, as the adoption of robotic surgery will radically change our surgical performance,” adding that “surgeons, who are highly competent, will benefit from this advanced technology to improve their interventions.”

Dr. Al-Semlali, who is also a professor of radiology, explained that robotic surgery allows surgeons to perform a wide range of complex operations with greater precision, flexibility, and control compared to traditional techniques, noting that the robotic system allows the tools to rotate 360 ​​degrees, which is something that the human hand is unable to do. .

Moreover, Al-Samlali adds, this technology provides the possibility of performing operations remotely, with the surgeon sitting comfortably, thus reducing fatigue and increasing accuracy. The 3D image processing system can also clearly distinguish between vessels, nerves and tissues, which reduces side effects and improves results. Surgical.

For his part, the urological surgeon and urological oncologist at Nice University Hospital, who was responsible for the two operations, Younis Ahlaal, explained that the medical interventions performed today included radical prostatectomy for a patient suffering from prostate cancer, partial nephrectomy, and removal of a renal tumor.

“Both operations were successful,” said Dr. Ahlal, who is also an expert and professor in robotic surgery, noting that the three-dimensional vision and “precision provided by the robot were crucial to the success of these two operations.”

He continued that this innovation provides us with a three-dimensional optical system that gives us a sense of depth and provides an enlarged image of the organs on which operations are being performed.Thus, the specialist can control all the movements and movements of the machine with the greatest sensitivity in order to preserve the patient’s organs as much as possible.

This event marks the beginning of a new era for medicine in Morocco, where technology and innovation will continue to play a major role in improving medical care.
