Robotic Surgery: Robots Playing In Human Body!
With advances in medical technology robotic surgery is the latest trend. However, you may feel confused or concerned if your doctor recommends you robotic surgery. You might feel worried obviously about the success of surgery, pain you feel and time to recover. Here is compiled all your concerns about robotic surgery.
How does the Robotic Surgical System work?
In the robotic system, your surgeon makes tiny inclusion in your body and inserts miniaturized instruments, and high definition three-dimensional camera. Whereas skin incisions are not required at all in some surgeries. Your surgeon manipulates these instruments nearby console to operate.
The robotic surgical system is just like the video games. Your surgeon uses master controls, to manipulate the instrument and the instrument mimics real-time movement, mimicking the movements inside the body viewed on the screen as well.
Is a robot operating on human body?
The patients concerned about robot performing system. Your surgeon is controller or director all the time. While robots meant to strictly follow precise and delicate motions of your surgeon. However, the controlled machine can never ever itself make decisions or perform incision. Moreover, robotic system cannot think on its own but respond to surgeon precise hand. Thus, Robots really allow great precision than human hand on its own.
Robotic surgery is Minimally Invasive surgery?
The two fancy words ‘minimally invasive’ means smaller incision. So, it means shorter hospitalization and faster recovery. Other aspects are:
- Less blood
- Reduced risk of infection
- Less scarring
- Faster return to life
Robotic Surgery provides treatment in:
The successfully treated conditions are colorectal, gynecological, heart, thoracic, urological, and endometriosis surgeries.
The benefits of robotic-assisted surgery are:
1.The surgeon has great range of motion,
2.The surgery is aided with highly-magnified and high-resolution images for a surgeon
3.Surgeon can better access with the areas of operation
4.Less infection risk as well as shorter hospital stay
5.Less pain and blood loss so fewer blood transfusion
6.Faster recovery hence, quick return to daily routine
