Feb 26, Colombo: The main state hospital in Sri Lanka is currently engaged in making the necessary arrangements to provide robotics assistance to surgeons.

Robotics assistance is to be provided to surgeons, especially engaged in prostrate surgery, at the Colombo National Hospital, according to a local media report.

The robotic machines are to be used as a natural extension of laparoscopic surgeries currently carried out at the hospital.

Senior Urological Surgeon and Consultant, Dr. Neville Perera told the media that it was important to be in line with the modern trends in the medicine field.

He explained that robotically-assisted surgery is being carried out in many parts of the world and that it needs to be applied in Sri Lanka as well. He added that using robotic technology could help eliminate human errors in surgery.
