Research and Development for Surgical Innovations in Health Care Technology: Microsurgical Robotics


Overview:UTHealth Microsurgical Robotics Laboratory designs and develops next-generation microsurgical robotic devices for minimally invasive surgeries. It consists of a Research and Development Team of expert engineers and surgeons located within the heart of the Texas Medical Center in Houston, Texas.


Mission:To develop state-of-the-art, minimally invasive microsurgical devices to perform surgical procedures in delicate regions that cannot be reached by current technology, such as in the brain or in small-size pediatric populations, as well as fetal procedures. Through telerobotic capabilities, patients can be treated remotely when living in any region of the world where special surgical procedures are not otherwise readily accessible.


­Research: UTHealth Microsurgical Robotics Laboratory will expand the possibilities of robotic surgery by creating the first microsurgical robotic system delicate enough for brain surgery, yet robust enough to perform traditional abdominal surgeries. Telerobotic capabilities will allow surgeons from the best medical centers to reach more patients, and provide the same quality of care to remote hospitals around the world


The microsurgical robot features three miniaturized instruments and one stereoscopic camera that fit into one of four ports of the robotic arm. This allows for just one, single incision. The robotic arm is flexible, featuring several joints, so that it moves dexterously and precisely. Instruments can be interchanged and come in a wide selection of specialized tip designs to enable a broad range of microsurgical operations. The stereoscopic camera allows 3D visualization of the surgical field. Each instrument can be sterilized and then reused later – allowing a cost effective design. A master controller controls the robotic arm remotely. This controller offers haptic feedback, giving the surgeon more information than current available robotic systems. These miniaturized, dexterous tools are what give the robotic the capability of performing highly complex procedures.
