This September was held in Leuven (Belgium) the Third Congress of the European Society of Gynecological Robotics (SERGS). The Gynecology Service of the HUB has presented the excellent results achieved in implementing robotic surgery in  high aortic-cava lymphadenectomy  procedures

Bellvitge University Hospital is positioned as a leader of European robotic gynecological procedures

This application represents an innovation in the use of the da Vinci system in the surgical treatment of ovarian cancer and high-grade endometrial .

The development of this new surgical approach has been done entirely in our hospital, thanks to the team work of surgeons, anesthetists, nurses and engineers (PALEX), from the robotics staff team of the Gynecology Department

The first advances were already selected for an oral presentation session at the World Congress of Robotics (WRGC III) held in Washington this past March.

The innovative and teaching position achieved in the field of oncological gynecology robotic by our unit has led to the appointment of Dr. Jorge Ponce as a member of the board of  SERGI.
This sets the University Hospital of Bellvitge and IDIBELL as the first Spanish representative at the front line of international robotic surgery

This recognition makes us a reference center for teaching and development of robotic surgery with da Vinci, and opens the door to collaborate and lead new applications in a multidisciplinary team of international scope.
