Robotic surgery or robot-assisted surgery is a type of minimally invasive surgical method, in which surgeons conduct surgical procedures through small incisions with the help of a robotic system. Surgeons use miniaturized surgical instruments that fit through a series of quarter-inch incisions using a robotic system. The surgery allows surgeons to perform complex procedures with more control, dexterity, precision and flexibility.
Benefits to surgeons
With the assistance from surgical robot’s minimally invasive technique, surgeons operate through dime-sized incisions ensuring lesser trauma on the body, minimal scarring, and faster recovery time. Robotic surgery assists surgeons to utilize technological elements such as enhanced 3D analysis of the surgical area, improved dexterity and surgical precision, and amplified range of motion for the surgery patients.
Benefits to patients
This surgery has a lot of benefits to patients. These include:
- Alleviated post-operative pain.
- Lower risk of infection.
- Lower concentration of anesthesia.
- Minimal blood loss.
- Shorter hospital stay period.
- Speedy and healthy recovery.
- Speedy return to everyday activities.
Reasons to perform the surgery
Robot-assisted surgery allows surgeons to take more control over the surgical procedure and it is used for a number of procedures. These include:
- Extracting tumor cells from sensitive body organs.
- Removal of gallbladder.
- Hip replacement surgery.
- Hysterectomy and tubal ligation.
- Coronary artery bypass.
- Removal or transplantation of kidney.
- Mitral valve repair.
- Radical prostatectomy.
Before the procedure, patients are suggested to discontinue food or fluid for 8 hours. They need to cleanse their bowels with an enema or laxative. Moreover, they need to stop taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory and other supplements. After giving general anesthesia to the patient, the surgeon makes small cuts to insert the endoscope, with a camera, into the patient’s body. Here, the robot performs the procedure matching doctor’s hand movements. Bleeding and infection are the two common risks that can affect the patient’s health after a surgical procedure. After the surgery, the patient is taken to the recovery room.
When compared to traditional surgery, robotic surgery guarantees faster recovery, lesser pain and bleeding, lesser risk of infection shorter hospital stay and smaller scars.
