Robotic Surgery | TIPO INFORMS YOU | Giving New Hope to Patients with Cancer
Robotic surgery is a method to perform surgery using very small tools attached to a robotic arm. The surgeon controls the robotic arm with a computer.
The surgeon makes small cuts to insert the instruments into your body.
A thin tube with a camera attached to the end of it (endoscope) allows the surgeon to view enlarged 3-D images of your body as the surgery is taking place.
The robot matches the doctor's hand movements to perform the procedure using the tiny instruments.
Why the Procedure is Performed
It can be performed through smaller cuts than open surgery. The small, precise movements that are possible with this type of surgery give it some advantages over standard endoscopic techniques
The surgeon sits at a computer station and directs the movements of a robot. Small surgical tools are attached to the robot's arms
Coronary artery bypass Cutting away cancer tissue from sensitive parts of the body such as blood vessels, nerves, or important body organs
Gallbladder removal | Hip replacement | Hysterectomy | Kidney removal | Kidney transplant | Mitral valve repair | Pyeloplasty (surgery to correct ureteropelvic junction obstruction) | Pyloroplasty | Radical prostatectomy | Radical cystectomy | Tubal ligation
- Surgical cuts are smaller than with traditional open surgery.
- Faster recovery
- Less pain and bleeding
- Less risk of infection
- Shorter hospital stay
- Smaller scars
