 Project objective

In the world of surgical medicine there is a major trend towards minimizing the number and size of skin incisions necessary to execute surgeries. This is very appealing from patients’ perspective, reducing or completely eliminating abdominal wall aggression and reducing post-operative pain. Less invasive surgery is also a major component of shorter hospital stays and quicker return to day-to-day activities by the patient. This benefits the patient, the healthcare system and the social-economic environment in general. Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS) is seen as the new frontier of this ongoing trend. In a SILS procedure the surgeon operates exclusively through a single incision in the patient’s navel, leaving just one barely-visible scar. However, SILS is very challenging for surgeons, because of the major constraints imposed by both the mode of access and the limited technology currently available. Valuebiotech (VBT) is an SME, spun off from Niguarda Hospital and AIMS Academy (Milano, Italy) and intends to address this problem through highly advanced robotics technology. This technology is designed to take the robot into the abdomen, and provide (intra-abdominal) the various tools necessary to perform a surgical procedure. The MILANO robot can be inserted via a single incision or natural orifice, and then, once inside the cavity, the robot positions itself to perform surgery.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "MILANO ROBOT" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
