Robotic surgery is becoming a golden standard for many minimally invasive procedures.
Advanced robotic systems give doctors greater control and vision during surgery, allowing them to perform safe, less invasive, and more marginally precise surgical procedures.
The da Vinci® Xi Surgical System, the latest in robotic technology, enables surgeons to perform delicate and complex operations through a few small incisions. The da Vinci System consists of several key components, including: an ergonomically designed console where the surgeon sits while operating, a patient-side cart where the patient is positioned during surgery, interactive robotic arms, a 3D HD vision system, and proprietary EndoWrist® instruments.
Da Vinci is powered by state-of-the-art robotic technology that allows the surgeon’s hand movements to be scaled, filtered and translated into precise movements of the EndoWrist instruments working inside the patient’s body.
"Open Surgery" vs Minimally Invasive Surgery
Robotic-assisted surgery represents the latest development in minimally invasive surgical techniques. A robotic-assisted system allows surgeons to combine the best of both laparoscopy and regular open surgery techniques.
Its advantages over open surgery patients who may experience long hospital stays, long recovery periods, large scarring and pain that all make this type of surgery daunting and exhaustive, is minimised, significantly reducing these effects through minimally invasive methods allowing patients to return to regular, active lives, with less interruption and pain.
AIMIS distinguished surgeons offer robotic-assisted surgery in specialties that include gastrointestinal, hepatobiliary, gynaecology, oncology and urology amongst others.
Which are the Minimally Invasive Surgery Benefits?
- Small incisions
- Minimal surgical scars
- Reduced blood loss
- Reduced trauma to the body
- Less post-operative pain
- Fewer complications
- Shorter hospitalization, Faster return to daily activities
- Quicker recovery time
- Reduced risk of infections
- Less Pain
The field of minimally invasive robotic surgery continues to grow, and most conditions today can be treated with some form of minimally invasive surgery. Not all minimally invasive procedures are completed with robot assistance, and not all medical cases are right for robotic-assisted surgery.
