Just as Leonardo da Vinci created art, the new da Vinci robot at #STARS creates 3D image masterpieces through strong magnification of the surgical area. 👨‍🎨🎨

Urologist Dr Matthew Roberts has been performing successful removals of cancerous prostates with the help of the robot and says he’s thankful to have played a few computer games in his youth.

“I was a big computer game guy growing up, so my experience with consoles have allowed me to take to the system’s mechanics a bit easier,” Dr. Roberts said.

“We control the robot’s ability to make incisions and stitches using tiny wristed instruments that move like the human hand, but with an increased range of motion.

“The tiny instruments together with the 3D camera allow us to perform procedures in a minimally invasive way which reduces recovery periods and time spent in hospital for the patient.” 🌟

Super STAR Matt. Fabulous surgeon and colleague. So proud to work with you 🙂

I remember seeing the Da Vinci in action at least 9 years ago at the Wesley Hospital. Has this same technology be used for womens health yet?

Well done Matt & team!!

"My wife of 32 years passed away three years ago. I'm doing okay now, I’m happy. I’ve been working for the local turf club for 26 years. I walk the horses in so they are on time for their race. I would like to keep doing it for as long as I can. My dog Buddy keeps me company. He was my wife's dog and is my pride and joy. I still wear my wedding band even though I'm a widower, I'll never take it off."
