Robotic Surgery: The Guide Book

First, we like to give a simple definition to the term. Robotic surgery is actually a type of surgery in which a special sophisticated electronic device is being coordinated or controlled through a computer by a trained surgeon to perform surgical operation on a patient with a very small tool affixed to the robot’s arm. Whether with the robot or through the conventional method, there are bound to be pains throughout the process of the surgical operation and as such, the patient will be given some anesthesia to kill the cells and probably sleep-off will the surgeon makes a proportional opening in the body to insert the surgical tool affixed to the robot’s arm into the body through the opening. The surgeon is able to see a magnified view of all internal part as the tool is lowered into the skin by a 3-D lens camera called the endoscope. This camera enables the robot controlled by the surgeon to move comfortably.

The list of conditions where the robotic surgery can be used is somewhat large yet the method may not be good to operate some conditions. The methods has however recorded success in some areas such as; Kidney removal, Gallbladder removal, Pyeloplasty (surgery to correct ureteropelvic junction obstruction), Tubal ligation, Coronary artery bypass, Hip replacement, Hysterectomy, Radical prostatectomy, Kidney transplant, Mitral valve repair, Pyloroplasty, Cutting away the cancer tissue from the sensitive parts of the body such as nerves, blood vessels, or the important organs of the body etc.
