On the Rostrum of the RAS Presidium


On March 13, 2018, a meeting of the RAS Presidium discussed the introduction of robotics into domestic medicine. It heard several coreports, the presenters of which—O.O. Yanushevich, E.V. Shlyakhto, D.Yu. Pushkar’, V.V. Krylov, I.V. Reshetov, A.V. Golanov, S.A. Sheptunov, Yu.V. Poduraev, S.A. Kraevoi, A.V. Alekhin, A.V. Koroteev, G.V. Savrasov, and V.P. Chekhonin—showed an exhaustive picture of the application and development of medical robotized systems in Russia and determined the prospects of further studies in this field. After having pointed to the advantages and drawbacks of the currently widely used da Vinci surgical systems, the presenters emphasized that copying foreign prototypes had no prospects. The general idea can be reduced to the urgent need for developing and designing original advanced digital robotic systems.
