Collaborating with robotic engineers, Dr. Jihad Kaouk recently came up with the SP Robot, which is capable of conducting complex operations with a single incision, he told The Daily Star.Soon after joining Cleveland Clinic as a fellow, Kaouk started his own practice and pioneered robot-operated surgeries on organs in the abdomen.The goal of the new SP Robot, according to Kaouk, was to minimize the number of cuts made to the patient's body, making the medical procedure less painful for the patient. Because the robot is also commercially available, Kaouk is confident that many institutions will soon follow suit.
