Milton Keynes University Hospital
Two years into their Versius® Robotic Assisted Surgery programme, Milton Keynes University Hospital (MKUH) have reported major impacts on patient outcomes and surgical staff wellbeing – including a saving of 450 bed days per year.
The benefits of minimal access surgery (MAS) are widely acknowledged, yet less than 50% of patients in Europe and the U.S. have access to it.1,2 The introduction of Versius at MKUH has helped bring the benefits of MAS to more patients, improving patient outcomes across multiple surgical specialities including gynaecology, colorectal, and general surgery. MKUH have also reported improvements in surgeon comfort and ergonomics, as well as a reduction in physical and cognitive stress.
The introduction of Versius at MKUH has helped me to offer more of my patients a minimally invasive procedure, bringing with it shortened recovery, hospital stay and a faster return to normal life. Versius is helping me to deliver some of the best outcomes I have seen in my patients.
