Robotic Abdominal Surgery

Robotic abdominal surgery is a newer technique that takes the technology developed for laparoscopic surgery one step further. Just as in laparoscopic surgery, small incisions are made in which surgical tools, including a tiny camera called a laparoscope are inserted. However, instead of these tools being held by the surgeon, they are held by robotic arms that are controlled by the surgeon. This process addresses the limitations of laparoscopy by providing a greater range of motion, more dexterity with the instruments and a three-dimensional view of the surgery.

Benefits of robotic surgery include:

  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer complications
  • Less risk of infection
  • Faster recovery
  • Minimal scarring

Length of surgery and recovery vary based on the specific procedure.

Conditions that may require robotic surgery include:

  • Adrenalectomy
  • Appendicitis
  • Biliary tract disease
  • Cancer
  • Cholecystitis
  • Colonic volvulus
  • Diverticulitis
  • Fibroids
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Hernia
  • Hysterectomy
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Nephrectomy
  • Pancreatatis
  • Peptic ulcer
  • Rectal prolapse
  • Reflux
  • Splenectomy
