Carving The Milestone: Gleneagles Hospital Johor Celebrates 250 Robotic Surgery Cases


Gleneagles Hospital Johor (GHJ), a leading healthcare institution dedicated to innovation and patient care, proudly announces a significant milestone in its journey towards advanced surgical solutions, marking a transformative impact on the landscape of women’s healthcare in Obstetrics and Gynaecology (O&G) services.

Redefining Patient Care through Advanced Technological Innovation

Iskandar Puteri, Johor (29 February 2024) – Gleneagles Hospital Johor (GHJ), a leading healthcare institution dedicated to innovation and patient care, proudly announces a significant milestone in its journey towards advanced surgical solutions, marking a transformative impact on the landscape of women’s healthcare in Obstetrics and Gynaecology (O&G) services.

Since the launch of its cutting-edge robotic systems – the first of its kind in the Southern region of Malaysia, the da Vinci Xi robotic surgical system in November 2022 – the hospital achieved its 250th robotic-assisted surgery in December 2023, signifying a pivotal moment in revolutionizing patient outcomes and surgical precision.

The integration of the da Vinci Xi robotic systems at GHJ underscores the hospital's commitment to providing versatile and state-of-the-art healthcare solutions. The recent milestone of completing 250 robotic-assisted surgeries is a remarkable feat, emphasizing GHJ's unwavering dedication to delivering quality healthcare.

GHJ’s primary objective in incorporating robotic-assisted surgery is to optimize patient outcomes. The advanced capabilities of the da Vinci Xi system empower GHJ’s O&G surgical teams to perform minimally invasive procedures with increased precision. This is particularly beneficial for women undergoing hysterectomy, myomectomy and complex cases such as multiple uterine fibroids and deeply infiltrating endometriosis, ultimately resulting in fewer complications and shorter hospital stays for the patients.

The hospital’s O&G surgeons note that their patients have experienced significant benefits, including smaller incisions, minimal scarring, and faster recovery compared to traditional open surgery. The da Vinci Xi system enables mothers with children and busy working women to return to their daily lives sooner. Reduced postoperative pain and shorter hospital stays contribute to an overall enhanced patient experience. This technology is a game-changer that advances women’s healthcare at GHJ.

At the core of this achievement is GHJ's team of skilled and certified surgeons and nurses, who have received specialized training in robotic-assisted surgery. Bringing a high standard of care to patients, their expertise combines the art of surgery with the precision of robotic technology, ensuring a seamless and effective approach to healthcare.

The 250th robotic surgery case was performed by GHJ’s esteemed O&G consultant, Dr. Alexandriia See, alongside Dr. Hon Sook Kit and Dr. Sharifah Halimah. Their collective expertise and dedication exemplify GHJ’s commitment to excellence in patient care.

GHJ remains steadfast in staying at the forefront of medical innovation. The adoption of robotic- assisted surgery is a pivotal element in the hospital’s ongoing efforts to provide patients with access to the latest advancements in medical technology, ensuring they receive the best possible care and treatment.

Dr. Kamal Amzan, CEO of Gleneagles Hospital Johor and the Regional CEO of Southern and Eastern Hospitals, IHH Malaysia, states, ‘GHJ will continue to deliver care par excellence to those who matters to us. This milestone is not the be-all and end-all; it simply marks the beginning of our journey as we continue to build the trust of our patients who consistently choose us as their preferred healthcare partners. We will also continue to train our surgeons in other specialties to use da Vinci Xi, acknowledging its benefits to patients compared to conventional open surgery. The Hospital aspires to be an education hub for doctors and nurses interested in training as certified robotic surgeons and nurses, contributing to building a better healthcare industry – together.’
