Robotic Precision Surgical Excellence

Robotic Surgery

What is Robotic Surgery?

Robotic surgery also known as minimally invasive surgery and robotic-assisted surgery is one of the technological advancements in the medical fields that have smoothened the surgical procedure. The technology allows surgeons to perform several surgeries having complete control, preciseness, and flexibility. The efficiency of robotic technology is far better than traditional surgeries as it is performed through tiny incisions. This technological advancement is also used in several open surgical procedures. 

How does Robotic Surgery work?

Here’s how robotic surgery works:-


  • Robotic system- The substance of robotic surgery is a refined robotic system, like the da Vinci Surgical System. It involves key components such as the surgeon’s console, robotic arms, and endoscope. 
  • Patient setup- The patient is prepared before the surgery. Once it is done, three to five small incisions are made in the surgical site. These incisions are made through specialized cameras and surgical instruments. 
  • Surgery execution- The surgeon involves using the console for controlling the robotic arms and performing the surgery. The robot interprets the movement of a surgeon into accurate actions. The 3D camera attached helps in providing a comprehension image of the surgical area.
  • Real-time feedback- The robotic system ensures providing feedback to the surgeon which allows them to feel tissue texture and resistance like conventional surgical methods. The feedback is helpful to the surgeon as they can ensure making precise movements.
  • Instrument flexibility- Instruments that are used in robotic systems are extremely flexible and can move in different directions. It offers improved dexterity that makes it possible for the surgeon to access the areas hard to reach.
  • Safety measures- Robotic systems are built with exceptional safety mechanisms. For instance, if the system notices hand tremors, it immediately stabilizes the movement of a surgeon. The system shuts down promptly so that the surgeon can move to a conventional method if required. 
  • Completion and closure- After the surgery is done, the surgeon instructs the robot for instrument removal, and incisions are closed with staples or stitches.

Conditions where Robotic Surgery is used

Many conditions are there where robotic surgery can be used. Here is the list of surgeries that have been performed with minimally invasive surgery successfully:

  • Heart surgery: Robotic surgery benefits in performing different heart surgeries like mitral valve repair, cardiac tumor removal, atrial septal defect repair, tricuspid valve repair, and foramen ovale repair
  • Gynecological surgery: Robotic surgery is beneficial for females experiencing gynecological conditions such as hysterectomy, endometriosis resection, and pelvic organ prolapse repair. 
  • Urologic surgery: Urological conditions are treated with robotic surgery like cystectomy, partial nephrectomy, radical prostatectomy, and sural nerve graft. 
  • Thoracic surgery: Minimally surgery is used for various thoracic conditions like mediastinal mass reduction, lung resection, and thymectomy. 
  • Gastrointestinal surgery: Assists in performing procedures such as pancreatectomy, colectomy, proctectomy, gastric bypass, and gastrectomy. 
  • General surgery: Robotic surgery is involved when patients are recommended for procedures like gallbladder removal, appendectomy, and hernia repair.
  • Oncology surgery: Robotic surgery is performed to treat several oncological conditions such as prostate cancer, gynecological cancers, head & neck cancers, lung &thoracic cancers, urological cancers, liver & pancreatic cancers, soft tissue sarcomas, and pediatric cancers. 
  • Bariatric surgery: Several bariatric conditions are treated with the involvement of robotic surgery such as gastric bypass surgery,  sleeve gastrectomy, lap-band surgery, biliopancreatic division with duodenal switch, and revisional bariatric surgery.

What are the Advantages of Robotic-Assisted Surgery?

Several advantages are offered by robotic surgery that are listed below: 

  • The surgeon gets better precision and motion range 
  • Minimal invasive surgery compared to traditional open surgery 
  • Surgeons can view the operating site through a highly magnified and high-resolution image
  • Minimal risk of infections 
  • Minimal risk of blood loss
  • Fewer blood transfusions 
  • Faster hospital discharge
  • Reduced pain (Mild discomfort)
  • Quick recovery after surgery

Robotic Surgery: What to Expect

During a robotic surgery, the surgeon is directed from closeby as there is no need to stand in the operating like tradition with this surgery. Appropriate steps are followed to complete the surgery successfully. Here are these steps:

  • First, the surgeon provides instructions to the robot to make incisions in the patient’s body. 
  • Secondly, a powerful camera and a mini robotic instrument are inserted into the body 
  • The complete procedure is directed by a surgeon through a closeby console also known as a large computer. 
  • The operation site can be viewed by a surgeon through a highly magnified and exceptional resolution 
  • The controls are manipulated by a surgeon sitting at the console
  • Robotic technology allows the surgeon to perform intricate surgeries in places that are hard to reach with great dexterity and motion range.

Recovery after Robotic Surgery

Recovery after robotic surgery cannot be better than any other surgical procedure. This is because robotic-assisted surgery doesn’t cause large incisions like traditional open surgery. It involves making smaller incisions with less blood loss and postoperative complications. In some surgeries, there is no requirement for stapling or suturing even after the surgery.
