Robotic Surgery

Robotic surgery is a minimally invasive technique for removing cancer allowing enhanced vision, precision and control. The system utilises a magnified 3D HD view along with tiny instruments inside the body with rotation and wristing like the human hand. The surgeon is 100% in control of the robotic instruments via the console which translates the surgeons movements into precise, tremor free actions inside the body

Robotic surgery is the standard treatment for prostate and kidney cancer through out the world.

 

Robotic surgery is minimally invasive. The recovery time is faster due to smaller cuts and therefore less pain. The risk of bleeding is far less. The potential to preserve nerves for erections and continence is higher.

There is nothing magic about Robotic Surgery. It is still just a tool used by the surgeon. How much experience and training the surgeon has had in robotic surgery will ultimately be the most important factor in the patients outcomes of recovery and cancer control.
