These advanced robotic technologies have been introduced at the hospital as part of the ministry’s commitment to keeping up with global advancements in healthcare, reported Al-Jarida Daily.

Dr. Suleiman Al-Mazidi, the head of the hospital’s surgery department, shared that the Da Vinci surgical system, which represents the latest technology in the field of robotic surgery, has been utilized in various procedures.
