Robotic surgery is a method to perform surgery using very small tools attached to a robotic arm. The surgeon controls the robotic arm with a computer.
We perform various types of urological procedure with the help of Robotic Assisted surgery
Robotic Surgery is the latest development in the medical field. This surgery is performed with the help of electro-mechanically controlled hands.
Typical problem related to Prostate, Kidney or Bladder, various types of surgical methods are available such as.
In case of complex problems, surgeries such as prostatectomy, nephrectomy or cystectomy require dexterous approach, because the target is surrounded by complex nerves and organs which are tightly confined to the operating area.
In open surgery, the surgeon has to make long scar to reach to the specific organ. This results in heavy blood loss lead to chances of infection and take a long time of recovery. Traditional laparoscopic surgery is also a good option to open surgery, but it limits the moments of surgeon’s hand. In case of complex surgery, there are chances that other organs get affected which leads to major complication.
Robotic Surgery is an advanced version of laparoscopic Surgeries. If we take the example of radical prostatectomy (Complete Removal of Prostate), then here the target (prostate) is delicate and tightly surrounded by the nerves affecting urinary control and sexual functions. Using the robots surgeon has a better control to spare surrounding nerves, which may enhance recovery experience and clinical outcomes.
These are the Urologic Procedures which can be performed by the surgeon are :
Prostatectomy (prostate cancer surgery)
Partial Nephrectomy (kidney disease/cancer surgery)
Cystectomy (Bladder Cancer)
Pyeloplasty (Urinary Reconstruction Surgery)
