Robotic Surgery at World Laparoscopy Hospital

Robots in the advanced field of minimal access surgery have dramatically changed the procedures for the better. The most significant advantage to Robotic Surgery to the patient is the decrease in pain and scaring with increase dextrity. The Robotic da Vinci System is changing surgical procedures, which improve both the patient's experience and surgical outcomes. It reduces trauma to the patient by allowing surgery to be performed through small ports or "keyholes" rather than large incisions, resulting in shorter recovery times, fewer complications and a reduced hospital stay. By integrating computer-enhanced technology with the surgeon's expertise, the high definition da Vinci surgical System enables surgeons to perform extremely delicate and precise minimally invasive surgery.

Robotic surgery has transformed laparoscopic surgical treatments. Robotic devices offer the surgeon unprecedented control and precision from the surgical instruments employed during minimally invasive procedures. This leads to less postoperative pain for that patient, shorter hospital stays, quicker recovery times, better cosmetic effects, and physiologic function. Robotics, while an indication of the days and also the future, require human intervention to operate.

 

 

da Vinci Robotic Surgical System

Robotic technology has been successfully implemented in many surgical treatments, including gastrointestinal laparoscopic surgery, cardiac surgery, thoracic surgery, neurosurgery, urologic surgery, orthopedic procedures, and gynecologic procedures.

Urologic Robotic Surgery

Some of the primary urologic surgical treatments that employ the da Vinci robot are:

  • nephrectomy,
  • pyeloplasty,
  • cystectomy with ileal conduit, and
  • radical prostatectomy

Prostate cancer may be the leading type of cancer in males. In a nutshell, the goals surrounding a radical prostatectomy are:

  • Remove the prostate and cancer
  • Preserve urinary function
  • Preserve erection health (via a nerve-sparing procedure or approach)
  • Analyze the prostate after surgery to evaluate the risk of recurrence of cancer

The individual benefits greatly too:

  • Decreased blood loss
  • Shortened period of hospital stay
  • Decreased postoperative pain
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter urinary catheter time
  • Faster return to regular activities
  • Anticipation of improved potency and continence

Gynecologic Robotic Surgery

Robotic assist may also be widely used in gynecologic procedures for various underlying disorders: fibroids, pelvic masses, abnormal bleeding, endometriosis, pelvic floor disorders, and precancerous/cancerous disease processes. Depending upon the problem, treatments might not necessarily include surgery. On the flipside, hysterectomy is easily the most common surgical procedure performed in women. The primary reason is the fact that it is the definitive solution for many types of common gynecologic conditions. If surgery is indicated, minimally invasive surgical (MIS) procedures have numerous advantages that are quite similar to those outlined earlier:

  • Minimal hemorrhaging
  • Preservation of love and fertility for fibroid removal/myomectomy
  • Decrease in a hospital stay
  • Less postoperative pain
  • Absence of a midline abdominal incision
  • Quicker recovery time
