AREAS WHERE ROBOTIC SURGERY IS USED

Urology

  • Prostatectomy (surgical removal of prostrate gland) for cancerous and benign conditions
  • Pyeloplasty (correction of kidney blockage)
  • Radical and partial removal of kidney for kidney tumours (removal of kidney)
  • Cystectomy (Removal of urinary bladder)

Cardiac Surgery / Heart surgery

  • Mitral valve repair (especially benefiting female patients)
  • Bypass surgeries for patients having 1 to 2 critical blockages
  • ASD closures on pediatric patients (i.e. Closing of hole in the heart)

Cancer Surgery

In the USA approximately 40% of all cancer surgeries are done with robotic assistance. Common usage in all types of cancers especially

  • Abdomen and chest cancers
  • Cancers of the prostrate, ovary, uterus and cervix.

General Surgery

Use of the robot has greatly benefited general surgery because of its advantages over laparoscopic technique. Procedures commonly done through robot-assisted surgery include:

  • Robot-assisted cholecystectomy (surgical removal of gall bladder)
  • Most intestine surgeries
  • Liver and pancreatic operations
  • Chest and abdomen procedures, etc.

ENT

  • Oropharyngeal procedure by transoral route
  • Surgery for sleep apnea (sleep disorders)

Benefits of Robotic Surgery

  • It's an advancement over Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS)/laparoscopy
  • Surgery through small incisions of 1 to 2 cm only
  • Insignificant blood loss and hence no/less requirement for blood transfusion
  • Less trauma and pain
  • Less chance of infection and tissue damage
  • Faster recovery - discharge within 1 to 3 days as opposed to 7 to 10 days in conventional surgery
  • Patient goes back to normal life in 5 to 7 days
  • Superior cosmetic outcome with minimal scars
  • Overall precision of surgery is greater
  • Robot gives the surgeon better control over surgical instruments, absorbing hand tremors (if any). Moreover, the range of movements of the robotic arms are better than the human wrist thereby increasing precision
  • Better view of the surgery site – the 3D magnification screens allow very clear, magnified view of the operative area which is 20 to 40 times more magnified compared to the naked eye, thus helping the surgeon to perform the surgery more accurately
