For more information regarding Da Vinci, pls go:
Erm, why i am so eager to talk about Da Vinci surgery in this lovely morning?? Partly is because i am impressed by National Heart Centre of Singapore. Since imported this high-tech surgical system in December 2006, cardiothoracic surgeons from NHC of Singapore have been performed varous operations by using Da Vinci Surgery. Cases operated were Mitral Valve repair, CABG, VSD and resection of mediastinal tumour. Really impressive!! Luckily, we still have Prince Court Medical Centre that make Malaysia proud of Da Vinci. They started Da Vinci surgery on urological patient
This make me wonder, while Singapore National Heart Centre is so excellent in clinical and research, where is our beloved Institute Jantung Negara(IJN)??
Click on National Heart Centre website! You notice that various excellent clinical researches and trials have been carried out in NHC such as Percutanous Aortic Valve Replacement, Retrogade technique for total chronic obstructio etc..The most recent was the combine heart and liver transplant in NHC. This is the Asian's 1st combine heart and liver transplantation which jointly performed by the cardiothoracic surgeon from NHC and transplant surgeon from Singapore Genaral Hospital. Heart transplantation was led by Dr C. Sivathasan, Dr Lim Chong Hee and Dr Lim Yeow Phang whereas the liver transplantation was led by Dr Tan Yu Meng, Dr Chew Peng Chung and Dr Alexander Chung.
Now click on our beloved Institute Jantung Negara! Yes, you will find "First in Malaysia" here and "first in malaysia" there....haha...
