A minimally invasive surgery for complex procedures performed by surgeons using robotic system. Why robotic surgery? With robotic capabilities, surgeons access tight & difficult sites where the human wrist cannot reach. Why robotic surgery? Useful for challenging surgeries like complex tumor removal surgeries, organ transplants, and gallstone surgeries. Do the robots perform surgeries on their own? No, the surgeon is the master controlling and guiding the robotic system very precisely. How does it work? Robotic system includes a console with joy sticks for the control, bedside robotic arms with tools to operate, and 3D vision system for imaging and navigation. Surgeon controls the robotic system to access through single or multiple ports/incisions, view the insides under 10x magnification, and operate with great accuracy and less fatigue. Advantages of robotic surgery over laparoscopy Unrestricted 3D, real-time, 360 ° image guidance Better access and positioning with small, flexible robotic wrists and tools Robotic system improves success rates over laparoscopy or open surgery due to better access to deeper organs, ambidextrous controls, great freedom and flexibility, zero hand tremors, more comfort and less fatigue, and 3D real-time guidance Are there any risks? Robotic surgeries include minimal health risks such as: post-surgical infections, hernia at incision site, and exposure to long duration anesthesia. How robotic surgery can cut on hospital stay? Shorter hospital stay and quick recovery over laparoscopy or open surgery due to smaller incisions, minimal scarring, less pain, less blood loss, and fewer complications. Hospital stay Robotic surgery as low as 2 days Versus open surgery: 6.1 days. Is everyone eligible for robotic surgery? The doctor after thorough investigation decides if robotic surgery is the best choice for cancer surgery, weight loss surgery, urologic/prostate surgery, gynecologic surgery cardiac surgery, transplant surgery, thoracic surgery colorectral surgery, head and neck surgery, reproductive endocrinology and infertility, and eye surgeries.
