Diagnosis: hernia l4-l5

Hello everyone, I was operated on in this clinic on May 18 by Dr. Renato Galzio for l4-l5 hernia. I felt at home, the doctors, nurses and physiotherapists are all very nice and professional. The only downside is the uncomfortable bed. Advice for those who need to be hospitalized, purchase a power cord for your phone that is at least 2 meters long. For more information, you can contact me.

Diagnosis: coronary artery bypass surgery

I would like to publicly thank Dr. Mauro Pansavolta on my behalf and on behalf of my family, not only for his innate skills in cardiac surgery, but also for his human qualities in explaining the technology of coronary bypass surgery. I thank each of his team separately, both for their responsiveness and for the high professionalism of resuscitation. Getting a patient to smile while falling asleep before surgery is not a common skill.)) I thank the doctors, nurses and staff of the entire cardiac surgery department. The hospital is rightfully considered the excellence of the Romagna, I would not like to note this, but I must testify that its glory is underestimated. Thank you.. Coronary bypass surgery was done on 08/09/22 and was discharged from the hospital on 09/15/22.

Diagnosis: implantation of the endoprosthesis

I’m here to provide feedback. Thanks to the Maria Cecilia Hospital, 8 years ago a heart surgeon pulled me out of the other world, the stubborn Dr. Lamarra performed a miracle. A few days ago, a problem with the thoracic aorta made me come to you again, hemodynamics implanted an endoprosthesis in 65 minutes, now I’m out of danger at home. I advise all friends to go to Maria Cecilia Hospital with any health problems.

WHAT ARE BIONIC PROSTHESES AND WHAT DO THEY SERVE FOR?

Maria Cecilia Hospital: bionic prosthesesMaria Cecilia Hospital in Ravenna, one of the few centers in Europe, performed the first bionic arm surgeries.

In Italy, more than 3,000 upper limb amputations occur annually caused due to pathologies or injuries. Prosthetics offer patients a new quality of life thanks to advances in technology and the use of ever more efficient materials. Wearing a prosthesis is like turning on a light: you need not only to screw in a light bulb but you also need to properly connect electrical cables.

Clinic specialists help the patient learn how to use the prosthesis correctly. This ability requires a long process of preparation and rehabilitation. Surgery is often also required for adequate neuromuscular connections. The TMR (Targeted Muscle Reinnervation) technique serves this very purpose.

WHICH DOCTORS IN ITALY ARE SPECIALIZED IN THE INSTALLATION OF BIONIC PROSTHESES?

In Italy, Dr. Guido Staffa is a pioneer in the application of the TMR method. He specializes in peripheral nervous system surgery at Maria Cecilia Hospital in Cotignola (Ravenna). This is a highly specialized clinic accredited by the Italian National Health System.

In recent years, more than 7 TMR procedures have been performed in Italy (there are about fifty in the world). All of them are performed under the supervision of Dr. Staffa and his team.

 

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE TARGETED MUSCLE REINNERVATION (TMR) TECHNIQUE FOR BIONIC PROSTHESIS?

The goal of the TMR technique is to create conditions for the implantation of a prosthesis. Dr. Staffa was a member of an amputee research group several years ago. Implanted electrical prostheses have been poorly used by patients because unusual muscle contractions are required to perform specific movements of the prosthesis. In fact, our brain refuses to use movements other than those for which it was designed. Therefore, in order to obtain the activation of these muscles, the surgeon implanted nerves in the residual part of the limb, that is, in the stump.

HOW DOES THE TMR METHOD WORK IN BIONIC PROSTHESIS IMPLANTATION?

TMR method for bionic prosthesis implantationThe operation consists in releasing the nerves from post-traumatic cicatricial adhesions and connecting the nerves, that controlled the function of the lost limb, with the muscles of the brachio-thoracic region. These target muscles will then function as a signal amplifier for the prosthesis electrodes. TMR improves control over the prosthesis and facilitates the patient’s rehabilitation process.

Then the process of rehabilitation and physiological research takes place. During this period, the reinnervated muscle is tested for the application of sensors that detect the electrical impulse to be transmitted to the prosthesis.

The patient path lasts about 2 years, including preoperative preparation, surgery, and postoperative rehabilitation, as well as long-term observation and training in the use of the prosthesis.

USE OF ROBOTIC SURGERY IN UROLOGY

Prof. Francesco Greco is one of the main specialists in urology at Maria Cecilia Hospital. He applies robotic surgery for all malignant and acute benign urological pathologies.

For example, with the help of the Da Vinci robot, prostate cancer is removed. This is a low-traumatic method of tumor surgery in men.

HOW TO HELP PATIENTS TO PREVENT UROLOGICAL DISEASES?

Prevention of urological diseasesAfter 35 years, a man should contact a urologist or andrologist to analyze his general well-being, including to rule out the pathology of the genitourinary system.

Early detection of prostate cancer allows timely surgery.

To learn more about men’s check-ups and get an early diagnosis of diseases, leave a request on the website.

The medical coordinator will arrange for you an online consultation with a doctor from Maria Cecilia Hospital. You can then decide whether health monitoring is appropriate.

 

WHAT MALE PATHOLOGIES ARE IMPORTANT TO PREVENT FROM AN ONCOLOGICAL POINT OF VIEW?

The most common tumors in men are prostate and testicular cancer. Cases of penile cancer are rare. As well, among them are neoplastic urological pathologies that can affect both sexes such as tumors of the bladder, kidneys, and ureters.

In 65% of cases, kidney cancer does not give symptoms, and if it does, it is already at a late stage. But early diagnosis opens up access to more conservative surgical treatments, such as robotic surgery.

 

WHAT IS HUGO ROBOT?

Robotic surgery in urology: robot HugoHugo Robot made its debut at the beginning of November 2022 at San Pier Damiano Hospital (a branch of Maria Cecilia Hospital).

Using Hugo Robot brings significant benefits to patients. Compared to traditional open surgery, the robotic technique allows getting:

  • less surgical trauma due to the absence of extensive incisions;
  • better restoration of functionality (abstinence, erection);
  • faster postoperative course and shorter hospital stays. The patient can return to daily life already on the first day after the operation, and in some cases can be discharged two to three days after the operation.

Operation options with Hugo include radical prostatectomy, radical cystectomy, and nephrectomy.

ROBOTIC SURGERY: HOW CAN IT HELP IN THE TREATMENT OF PATIENTS WITH UROLOGICAL DISEASES?

Robotic surgery in the treatment of patients with urological diseasesThe treatment of patients with urological malignancies no longer focuses only on the removal of the tumor but has another goal: to guarantee the patient the best postoperative quality of life.

This is very important in the case of prostate cancer: removal of the gland solves the problem from an oncological point of view but can lead to urinary incontinence, which significantly impairs the patient’s quality of life. Today, robotic removal of a prostate tumor allows for greater precision and helps preserve anatomical structures that are important for postoperative functional recovery of urinary retention and erection.

Even in the case of kidney cancer, robotic surgery can provide excellent results. Thanks to early diagnosis, today it is possible to remove only the area affected by the tumor, avoiding the removal of the entire kidney, as was done in the past. “This approach has important implications not only for the quality of life of the patient who does not require dialysis but also improves cardiovascular performance compared to when the entire diseased kidney is removed,” concludes Professor Greco.
