Benefits of Robotic Surgery

  • It's an advancement over Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS)/laparoscopy
  • Surgery through small incisions of 1 to 2 cm only
  • Insignificant blood loss and hence no/less requirement for blood transfusion
  • Less trauma and pain
  • Less chance of infection and tissue damage
  • Faster recovery ? discharge within 1 to 3 days as opposed to 7 to 10 days in conventional surgery
  • Patient goes back to normal life in 5 to 7 days
  • Superior cosmetic outcome with minimal scars
  • Overall precision of surgery is greater
  • Robot gives the surgeon better control over surgical instruments, absorbing hand tremors (if any). Moreover, the range of movements of the robotic arms are better than the human wrist thereby increasing precision
  • Better view of the surgery site ? the 3D magnification screens allow very clear, magnified view of the operative area which is 20 to 40 times more magnified compared to the naked eye, thus helping the surgeon to perform the surgery more accurately
