What is Robotic Surgery?

Robotic surgery, or robot-assisted surgery, helps doctors to perform many types of complex surgeries through very miniature incisions with more precision, flexibility and control than is possible with conventional techniques; and this procedure can lead to a best patient recovery.

The first Robotic Surgery System to be adopted as a pioneer concept in the field of medicine was the “da Vinci Surgical System”. This system, which was approved by the FDA in 2000, has become a significant method to perform delicate procedures which might have been difficult to carry out using traditional methods.

How does it work?

The surgeon sits at a computer station and directs the movements of a robot; small surgical tools are attached to the robot’s arms:

  • The surgeon makes small cuts to insert the instruments into the patient’s body.

  • A thin tube with a camera attached to the end of it (endoscope) allows the surgeon to view enlarged 3-D images of the body as the surgery is taking place.

  • The robot matches the doctor’s hand movements to perform the procedure using the tiny instruments.
