Robotic Urological Surgery

What is Robotic Surgery?

Traditional laparoscopic surgery is performed by a skilled laparoscopic surgeon and has become the standard of care for many diseases such as gall stones, hysterectomy or nephrectomy. However, regular laparoscopy has limitations  making it difficult to perform more complex laparoscopic procedures safely. This is especially true for procedures such as radical prostatectomy. Robotic surgery offers revolutionary advantages- 10x magnification, 3-dimensional HD vision, extreme precision of movements and the ability to work in small spaces. This has led to its rapid adoption in the Western world. Today, an overwhelming majority of radical prostatectomies in the USA are performed robotically. The technology also enables clean dissection and precise suturing for pyeloplasties and other urological procedures. Of note, all procedures are actually perfomed by the Urologist- the robot merely executes the operation. Each movement of the robotic arm is under the direct control of the Urologist.

Adoption of robotic technology by skilled urologists has proven to be simple and increasingly, robotic surgery is becoming the standard of care for many laparoscopic procedures. Also, several operations that were just not possible with conventional laparoscopy, are now feasible by the use of the robotic machine.

What Machine do We Use?

At Apollo Hospital, Hyderabad we have the da Vinci Si latest generation Robotic Machine from Intuitive Technologies, USA. The machine has four robotic arms, 10x magnification, high definition vision with settings for extremely precise movements.
