Apollo Hospitals successfully completes over 55 complex Robotic surgeries
However, Robotic surgery is the latest innovation that has been flourishing over the past four years as the widely-accepted surgical procedure by both doctors and the patients.
Established in November 2011, the Apollo Institute of Robotic Surgery at Chennai has been providing excellent treatment in general and bariatric Surgery, Oncology, Gynaecology, and Urology, on a broad range. Based on the modern, innovative ‘da Vinci Robotic System’, 56 complex surgeries have been achieved at Apollo Hospitals. As more patients prefer robotic assisted surgery, this renowned medical institute anticipates extending its potential in cardiac, head and neck surgeries too.
Incorporation of state-of-the-art technology with surgical expertise and computer enhanced platforms forms the basis of minimally invasive surgery with enhanced accuracy, efficiency, and protection. Unlike conventional surgeries, robotic surgical procedures involve less blood loss, minimal pain and scar, decreased tissue trauma and speedy recovery.
EndoWrist instruments equipped with robotic arms are of much use to the Robotic surgeons for accomplishing intricate and complex surgeries that are otherwise impossible with human hands. Despite the intelligence incapability of the robot to conduct automatic movements, it can be programmed to perform multiple safety checks per second.
Robotic Surgery is considered to be the ideal mode to treat obesity and diabetes especially for patients who have experienced multiple surgeries and for those requiring complicated surgical procedures.
