Robotic surgery isn’t an option for everyone. You need to talk with your doctor about the suitability, benefits and risks of robotic surgery, and how it compares with conventional techniques, such as open or laparoscopic surgery, before making any decision.
What is Robotic Surgery?
Robotic surgery is a type of minimally invasive surgery. “Minimally invasive” means that instead of operating on patients through large incisions, Surgeon uses miniaturized surgical instruments Introduced through tiny cuts in the body to do the surgery.
Da Vinci Surgical Robot
The Da Vinci Robotic System consists of a magnified 3D full high-definition vision system and tiny, wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. The surgeon controls the robotic instruments while seated at a computer console near the operating table. Da Vinci Surgical Robot allows the surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.
The da Vinci Si has two separate but connected sections:
Specialization & Expertise
This tower is positioned near the patient on the operating table. It includes four robotic arms which house the robotic instruments introduced through tiny cuts in the body. The robotic arms are like the extension of the surgeon’s hands. The Robotic instruments move in real time responding to the surgeon’s hand movements at the surgeon’s console. 7 degrees of movement offered by the robotic arms are more dexterous than the human hand
This is where the surgeon sits during the procedure. Here the surgeon is able to see a magnified 3D HD view of the of the surgical site. and carries out the procedures using the ergonomically designed instruments. The surgeon uses master controls to move the instrument arms and camera of the robotic system. The system then mimics the surgeon’s hand, wrist and finger movements in real time. The robotic arms precisely replicate the movements of the surgeon at the master controls, greatly enhancing accuracy, especially in small, hard-to-reach operating spaces. The system needs to be manipulated by the surgeon, and it cannot be programmed or act in any way without the surgeon’s input.
How Does The
- Da Vinci Si Help Surgeons?
The ultimate effect of Da Vinci Robot is to give the surgeon unprecedented control in a minimally invasive environment as if Surgeon has miniaturized his body and gone inside the patient.” Utilizing this advanced technology, surgeons are able to perform a growing number of complex urological, procedures. Since these procedures can now be performed through very small incisions
Patients experience a number of benefits compared to open surgery, including:
