What is Robotic Surgery?

Robotic surgery is a minimally invasive surgery, wherein doctors use small but precise surgical instruments that are inserted into the patient's body through multiple small cuts, instead of one large cut.

The surgeon does not perform this procedure directly; instead, 4 robotic arms perform the surgery and they are controlled by the surgeon who sits at a specialised console.

Special features of the Robotic Technique

HCG houses the leading-edge da Vinci Xi Robotic Surgical System, which has four interactive robotic arms – of the four, three hold the surgical tools, and the fourth arm carries a 3D camera.

The robotic arms function with the unique and intuitive EndoWrist technology that is responsible for intricate movements of the arms in the surgical site.

The high-definition vision and 10X magnification properties of this technology aid surgeons in reaching various unreachable areas of the body and successfully operating on the tumour.

The 3D imaging guidance and precision offered by this robotic surgery system help in reducing the damage to the surrounding healthy tissues.
