Surgeons performing keyhole surgery now have an extra pair of safe hands in theatre thanks to the arrival of a robotic ‘arm’.

The new £17,000 Freehand Robotic Camera Controller enables surgeons at Mexborough Montagu Hospital to operate with a constantly high-quality picture of the operating site.

The robotic controller will be used in a range of keyhole surgery procedures including gall bladder removal and hernia repair.

Mr Niraj Khetan, consultant general surgeon at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, said “We are very grateful to the Mexborough Montagu Hospital Comforts Fund for their generosity in funding the purchase of this new equipment, which will enable us to provide an even higher standard of care to patients.”
