High-precision surgery

By using augmented or virtual reality, surgical robots and fluorescent molecular targets, we can treat patients with high precision and minimally invasive. This leads to fewer complications, a better quality of life, and a shorter hospital stay.​

​“Making surgery as light as possible for patients, that’s our goal. We do so by removing tumors as precisely as possible with the newest technology, such as robot surgery.”

We cherish our associate professors. At UMC Utrecht, we give them the opportunity to hold their own ‘inaugural lecture’: the UHD lecture. This allows them to present their research work and vision in a comprehensive video, available to all audiences.
