How Robotic Surgery is Done

Robotic Surgeries are advanced version of laparoscopic Surgeries. In compared to open surgeries, laparoscopic surgeries are advanced and less invasive.  But laparoscopic surgery has its own limitations. It is very effective for normal routine procedures but when there are more complex surgeries involved; option of laparoscopic surgery is not feasible. In such surgeries, greater precision is required and it is only possible by the most advanced robotic surgeries.

In cases such as radical prostatectomy, the target (prostate) is delicate and tightly surrounded with the nerves affecting urinary control and sexual functions. Using the robots your surgeon has a better tool to spare surrounding nerves, which may enhance in recovery experience and clinical outcomes.

Benefits of Robotic Surgery for Prostate (Prostatectomy) Cancer

Robotic Surgery has revolutionized the medical field by storm. This surgery is gaining immense popularity for prostatectomy, hysterectomy, and heart related diseases. It is a minimally invasive surgery performed by a robot, wherein the systems are controlled by the surgeon and his/her movement’s are translated in the computer and further carried out by the robot on patients. Here, the robotic arms are attached to long instruments and are placed through small keyhole openings in the patient’s abdomen instead of the surgeon’s hands.

Though, the robot performs the operation but the entire process is actually controlled by the surgeon, which includes handling the forceps with the help of ‘master control’. The surgeon monitors the robot’s work and every movement step by step. Da Vinci Surgical System – state-of-the-art technology is used for this surgery.
