What Is Robotic Surgery?

Robotic Surgery is an advanced form of minimally invasive or laparoscopic (small incision) surgery where surgeons use a computer-controlled robot to assist them in certain surgical procedures. The surgeon controls the movements of small instruments attached to robotic arms with the help of a computer to perform surgeries. It enables the surgeons to perform the surgery with better control, precision and dexterity.

What are the alternate names of robotic surgery?

The alternate names of robotic surgery are computer-aided surgery / robot-assisted surgery.

How to prepare for robotic surgery?

  • The doctor may advise some tests such as blood tests,  urine tests, electrocardiogram (EKG), chest x-ray ultrasound and/or CT scan.
  • Stop blood thinners such as aspirin, warfarin, clopidogrel 7-10 days before surgery.
  • All herbal medications and vitamin supplements are stopped 10 days before surgery.
  • Fasting from midnight the day before the surgery to prevent aspiration and nausea during surgery.

How is robotic surgery performed?

  • The surgeon makes tiny incisions and inserts robotic instruments and a camera into the operation site.
  • The surgeon sits in front of a console and controls the movements of robotic instruments.  A console is a large computer that shows a highly magnified view of the site of surgery.

Thus, robotic surgery allows real-time movements of instruments inside the patient’s body with extreme precision.

Follow up

The patient is asked to visit the hospital between 2 and 6 weeks after surgery and then after every 6 to 12 weeks.

What Are The Benefits Of Robotic-Assisted Surgery?

Some of the major benefits of robotic-assisted surgery include:

  • Unmatched precision
  • Lower risk of complications, including surgical site infection
  • Smaller, less visible scars
  • Less blood loss
  • Less pain
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster recovery (a quicker return to normal activities)
  • Greater visibility with the three-dimensional camera and greater camera magnification for viewing intricate anatomy
  • Allows the surgeon to access and operate in confined spaces in the body
