Robotic Surgery & Treatment

Nanavati Centre for Robotic Surgery is the most revolutionary form of Minimally Invasive or Laparoscopic surgery performed by an expert surgeon with the assistance of a computer-controlled robot.


Robotic Surgical System

The Da Vinci Xi is the world’s most advanced robotic surgical system and is regarded as the disruptive innovation of minimally invasive surgery. This technology is specially designed for performing highly sophisticated, multi-quadrant surgery and also relatively simpler single-quadrant surgery, offering a high level of comfort for patients and surgeons alike.

The surgery is performed by an expert surgeon who works from a computer console installed in the operating room, controlling miniaturised instruments mounted on three robotic arms to make tiny incisions on the patient.


Benefits of Robotic Surgery

Robotic surgery offers many benefits compared to open surgery for both patients and surgeons


Benefits for patients:

  • Shorter hospitalization
  • Reduced pain and discomfort
  •  Faster recovery time and return to normal activities
  •  Smaller incisions, resulting in reduced risk of infection
  •  Reduced blood loss and transfusions
  • Minimal scarring                                       

Benefits for Surgeons

  • Greater visualization
  •  Enhanced ability
  • Greater precision


Cost for Robotic Surgery

Robotic Surgery is slightly expensive than regular surgery. Robotic Surgery requires shorter hospital stay, thereby considerably decreasing the hospitalisation cost. It also provides faster recovery, enabling patients to return to their normal life quicker.


Significance of an expert surgeon in Robotic Surgery

Even though the surgery is performed by the robot, the entire procedure is in complete control of the surgeon. Surgical robots are self-powered, computer –controlled devices that can be programmed to aid in the positioning and manipulation of surgical instruments. It helps the surgeon to perform complex surgical tasks through small incisions. Ultimately, Robotic surgery aides the surgeon to execute a surgery with better accuracy, flexibility and control.
