Overview:

Apollo Hospitals, Ahmedabad, a pioneer in healthcare innovation, recently launched the Da Vinci Xi Robotic Surgical System.

About Da Vinci Robotic Surgical System:

  • It is a tool that helps surgeons perform a variety of surgeries including gynecological surgeries, urological, head and neck, thoracic, colorectal, cardiac and general surgeries.
  • Because the da Vinci only uses small cuts, it’s less traumatic on your body, resulting in less pain, fewer complications and a shorter recovery time.
  • It can be used in the field of colorectal surgeries, urology, oncology, gynaecology thoracic, cardiology, paediatric and gastro-intestinal surgeries, kidney transplants and in liver transplantation.
  • The machine is made up of three different parts:
    • The console/control center: The surgeon operates while seated at a console unit, using hand and foot controls and with a magnified, 3D, high-definition view.
    • The patient cart: The cart holds surgical instruments and the camera.
    • The vision cart: This cart has a video screen so that the healthcare providers in the room can see what’s happening during the surgery.

What is a Da Vinci surgery?

  • A Da Vinci surgery is when your surgery is performed using the da Vinci Surgical System, a machine that uses four thin robotic arms.
  • The robotic instruments have a wider range of motion than the human hand. Surgeons can use the surgical system for a variety of procedures.

What’s the difference between a da Vinci surgery and an open surgery?

  • Use of the da Vinci system makes your surgery “minimally invasive” (smaller incisions).
  • The procedure uses small cuts (less than or equal to 1 centimeter long), tiny surgical instruments, fewer stitches and a laparoscope (a telescope) which is a thin tube with a light and a camera lens.
  • This is different than traditional surgeries that use larger, more invasive cuts through skin, tissues and muscles.
