Robotic surgery


Robotic surgery is performed using robot assisted surgery system.In this system, the robot is controlled by the surgeon. KIt involves use of robotic arm to carry out minimally invasive (Keyhole) surgical procedures. The robotic arms are controlled by a surgeon by a surgeon who sits at a console and operates the instruments using a high resolution 3D Camera. The robotics arms are equipeed withsmall surgical instruments that can rotate 360 degrees, providing high level of precision and control during surgery.

Robotic surgery is rapidly expanding technology in multiple different surgical specialties worldwide

Robot assisted Gastro intestinal procedures:

Robotic surgery has revolutionized the field of GI Cancer surgery and non cancer Gastro intestinal surgery, providing high level of precision and control during complicated surgeries. It has shown to be effective in reducing the length of hospital stay, blood loss and need for post operative pain medications.


One of the major benefits of robotic surgery is that it is minimally invasive. Hence it involves smaller cuts, less pain, less trauma to the body and hence speedy recovery. High precision and fine dissection results in less blood loss and improves accuracy and surgical outcomes. In summary, benefits include:

– Smaller surgical cuts

– High precision

– Less pain and scarring

– Early recovery

– Good accuracy
