Robotic surgery is the most advanced technology in the medical world. IstHealth robotic surgery centers; special surgeries performed in urology, pediatric urology, obstetrics, general surgery and bariatric surgery branches, especially in important centers in the United States, are performed with this technology.
Robotic surgery has the distinction of being one of the most successful surgical methods used in the fight against cancer all over the world, especially by standing out with the special privileges it provides to the doctor and patient.
There are three main features of the robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery method known as “robotic surgery”:
The imaging system works with the principle of laparoscopic surgery. The image from inside the patient’s body is transferred to the surgeon with the help of a camera. In robotic surgery, unlike laparoscopic surgery, this image is three-dimensional and is a clear image without flickering, as camera control is performed by the robot. By getting very close to the organ to be operated, clear images can be obtained at larger magnification.
The surgeon controls the robot arms with the help of a console. These robot arms are placed on the patient. Fiber-optic cables located in the console go to the robot’s arms and transfer the small hand movements made by the surgeon to the robotic arms, and instruments such as surgical scissors, tissue, or needle holders connected to them are allowed to make the desired movements.
Since surgical instruments attached to robotic arms can rotate 540 degrees, they can move in a way that does much more than hand movements. Also, normally, natural tremors in a person’s hand are not reflected at all on the ends of surgical instruments in robotic surgery. In this way, the margin of error is also minimized.
Comfort and privileges provided by technological superiority
Robotic surgery offers many privileges to the patient and surgeon both thanks to its technological advances and ease of use:
The patient’s hospital stay and recovery time are much shorter than open surgeries.
Since the procedure is performed through several small incisions, there are no surgical scars left.
The mobility of devices used in robotic surgery is also quite high. The surgical procedure is performed in advanced size, conveniently and quickly.
Since hand tremors are not transmitted to robotic arms, surgery is performed more safely.
There is less risk of bleeding.
The patient’s recovery time is shortened.
The risk of infection is lower.
Robotic surgery provides surgical comfort and convenience, as it features three-dimensional imaging and gives the surgeon the ability to manage the operation at the console.
