Robotic surgeries are highly specialised and advanced minimal access procedures that are performed by surgeons with the help of a surgery robot like the da Vinci at Aster Medcity. These procedures require a great amount of expertise and are performed by surgeons with special training in robotics.
The da Vinci system at Aster MARS is a state-of-the-art surgery robot with three deft mechanical hands and a 3D video camera that works like a third eye for the surgeon. These are inserted into the body through very small incisions, and the surgeon, who is seated at the console that provides a highly magnified 3D view of the area, performs the surgery using the robotic hands.
The robotic hands have tiny wrists that can bend/ turn in all directions, which means unmatched dexterity and finer manipulation compared to that of the human hand. This helps the surgeon to ensure high precision results compared to conventional surgeries.
Being a minimal access procedure, robotic surgeries are safer and ensure better outcomes. The associated pain, complications, blood loss and scarring are way lesser compared to normal surgeries, which in turn translates to faster recovery. The hospital stay and post-surgery recovery period are minimal as well; and patients can get back to their normal lives in a very short time.
