Robotics is a revolution in the field of surgical oncology

Robotics is a revolution in the field of surgical oncology

Robotics is a revolution in the field of surgical oncology.It’s an extended version of laparoscopy. Surgical concepts keep evolving to meet the needs of the patient.

What is the benefit to the patient? 

Certain procedures were very difficult even in open surgery. Patients used to suffer after open example was Prostatectomy. Such procedures even surgeon used to struggle. Robotics became viable option in such procedures. Many features are upgraded than laparoscopy and it’s a clear benchmark for future surgery.

What is the benefit to the surgeon? 

Most important benefit is tremor filtration. This enhances surgeon’s performance in suturing and while working near blood vessels minimising problems to the patient and it’s an indirect advantage to the patient.

Robot in our hospital?

Presently we are having advanced Si davici robot with all latest instruments. Dedicated team is available. We are doing all the advanced robotic procedures on par with any robotic institute in world.

Our experience is vast with robotics. our team got trained in Seoul South Korea and we have been associated with this technology since 10 years .Initially prostate cancer surgery and partial nephrectomy were done with robotics. Later on, scope was extended to the field of surgical oncology.

What are the unique features of robotic surgery?

  •          3D vision
  •          Endowrist movement of instruments with range of movement more than human hand
  •          Camera in surgeon’s control
  •          10 times more magnification than laparoscopy
  •          Stable environment
  •          Better precision than laparoscopy


Robotic Procedures we do

  •  Transoral robotic surgery
  •  Scarless neck procedures
  •  Robotic lung resections
  •  Mediastinal tumor excision
  • Oesophagectomy
  • Gastrectomy
  • Whipple’s procedure
  • Distal pancreatectomy
  • Colorectal procedures
  • Radical prostatectomy
  • Partial nephrectomy
  • Para aortic nodal dissection

Transoral robotic surgery, which patient is eligible?

  • Base of tongue cancer
  • Tonsillar cancer 
  • Pharyngeal cancer
  • Laryngeal cancer

Scar less neck procedures, who ie eligible?

Young females and males worried about cosmesis 

  • Thyroid surgery
  • Neck dissections
  •  Thyroid surgery
  • Approaches 
  • Axillary
  • Breast 
  • Oral cavity
  • Behind the ear

Result - no scar in the neck. Patient satisfaction is amazing. 

Robotic lung resections 

Lung cancer. surgery done through 8 mm incisions .very less pain after surgery. Open surgery for lung cancer is very painful.

Advantages of robotic surgery

  • Less blood loss
  • Less hospital stay
  • Early recovery and mobility
  • Less conversion to open surgery
  • Obese patients more useful
  • Complex procedures can be done 
  • Better accessibility to difficult areas

Building team is vital and teamwork is essential in handling these complex procedures. With our institutional support we are doing these procedures at affordable cost.

We performed 30 total robotic whipple’s for pancreatic cancer which is one of the highest series in India.

Cancer patients can utilise this cutting edge technology for better results.
