The Petz Aladár University Teaching Hospital in Győr has always been at the forefront of minimally invasive, endoscopic and laparoscopic surgery. Regular broadcasts are held on the institution's internal network to give insight into surgeries in other departments, further enhancing the training of doctors. The Da Vinci surgical robot, a product of the manufacturer Intuitive Surgical and distributor SofMedica, was presented at one such event. The aim is to make this state-of-the-art technology available in the hospital in Győr in the future.

According to Dr. László Jávor - Director General of Petz Aladár University Teaching Hospital - as a hospital of regional relevance, it would be an important step to introduce this in daily work, including the strengthening of oncological therapy, the treatment of certain cancers and certain pelvic and urological surgeries. The Director General highlighted the hospital's close partnership with Széchenyi István University in the context of the increasingly prominent role of innovations in medicine. "The great strength of the university is that it does not want to develop and achieve results on its own, but strives for broad cooperation in all areas, which also helps the development of the region as a whole. Our partnership is also prominent and highly diverse, covering a wide range of areas in Covid care, from student volunteering to joint training and research to the alignment of engineering and healthcare competencies. The Health Technology Campus to be established in the Zrínyi Street building complex in Győr will be another important stage in this process" he said.
Two doctors who also play an important role in the professional work of the Széchenyi István University as Deputy Dean and Head of Department at the Faculty of Health and Sports Sciences actively participated in the presentation of the Da Vinci robot at Petz Hospital.
