New technologies in surgery
Surgery, both specialist and general, has undergone revolutionary technological progress in recent years. In particular micro-surgery, endoscopic surgery, navigation techniques, robotic technology, new blood vessel coagulation procedures and also the application to surgery of technologies used in other fields such as 4K screens and 3D systems. In the otorhinolaryngology field, as a result of the specific features of this anatomical area and the limited space available, all the technologies listed can be applied and both oncological neck surgery as well as nose and paranasal sinus surgery, ear surgery and surgery on the base of the skull have all profoundly changed as a result of technological progress.
Technological progress has had direct positive results on patients in terms of less invasive and more precise surgery with consequently more rapid recovery time frames and better functional outcomes.
