Microsurgery, necessary for tiny blood vessels and lymphatic vessels, is extremely difficult and very steady hands to be performed. That’s the reason why only a handful of surgeons are willing to do such surgeries and the number is too small for the entire world.
To address this issue, a company called Microsure has developed a robot that can now help surgeons perform complex microsurgeries by offering highly precise movements.
The treatment required the connection of lymphatic vessels to the blood vessels to restore lymphatic flow and improve the condition of the patient.
With the help of this robot, surgeons were able to suture vessels of 0.3mm and 0.8mm in the arm of the patient.
The patient is doing well now and is now recovering, as reported.
Future of Microsurgery
Given the fact that only a few surgeons globally can perform such complex surgeries by hands, robots and machines like the one developed by Microsure can help surgeons globally perform such complex surgeries.
We aim to assist surgeons during other types of complex microsurgical procedures like tissue reconstructions after removal of a tumor.

“This proves that our technology is a key breakthrough in improving surgical care. As a next step, we aim to assist surgeons during other types of complex microsurgical procedures like tissue reconstructions after removal of a tumor. Using our device they will be able to perform surgery with better precision and fewer complications,” says Raimondo Cau, the technical brain of Microsure.
