Robotic Surgery

Columbia Asia Referral Hospital Yeshwanthpur, a tertiary care hospital, has now introduced robotic surgery in Urology and Gastrointestinal surgery. The hospital which has infrastructure and technical expertise is known for clinical expertise in all specialties. With the commencement of robotic surgeries, we have reached the pinnacle of excellence. The robotic equipment is used in renowned institutions globally. The equipment in Columbia Asia is the most contemporary model and our Consultants are extensively trained in robotic surgery. A dedicated operation theatre is remodeled to enable the consultants to perform the intricate and precision driven surgery, in an ambient environment. The consultants, who are trained in renowned institutes in India and abroad, follow all protocols to ensure the best standard of care is given.

What is Robotic Surgery?

Robotic surgeries are computer assisted techniques with robotic systems aiding surgical procedures. It is a mechanical helping hand to surgeons. Surgical robots are self-powered, computer-controlled devices that can be programmed to aid in the positioning and manipulation of surgical instruments. Surgeons view the patient via a terminal and manipulate the robotic surgical instruments via a control panel located in the adjoining console

Organs are viewed though tiny cameras inserted into the body. The surgical robot functions by remote, minimally invasive and unmanned surgery

Special features of the robotic technique

It is a 3 D high density vision system, which is minimally invasive and gives the surgeon a wider view of the operating site and offer the same flexibility of a wrist. The surgery is done with great precision and with minimal handling of surrounding organs

What are the specialties for which robotic surgery is done?
  • Urology
  • Gastro intestinal surgery
  • Gynecology
The robotic assisted surgery advantage
  • Better insite 3D vision, camera zoom
  • Very precise surgery, offers flexibility and better control
  • Significantly less pain
  • Fewer complications
  • Less bleeding and associated complications
  • Lower rates of infection
  • Less need for medication
  • Smaller incisions
