Robotic Surgery Advantages

Surgery assisted by a robot brings significant benefits to both the surgeon and the patient:

  • Robotic precision eliminates natural tremors of the human hand
  • Superior visualization of the surgical spot is possible through highly magnified three-dimensional images
  • It provides the ability to operate on hard-to-reach, small, and narrow areas
  • Smaller incisions result in less pain and decreased blood loss, leading to faster recovery

However, this type of operation is not the best choice for every patient. Talk with your doctor to determine if robotic surgery is the right option for you.

Robotic Surgery for Cardiovascular Diseases

In recent years, robot-assisted techniques have brought minimally invasive surgery to the next level. ‚ÄėMinimally invasive‚Äô means smaller cuts when compared with traditional open surgery. It is usually associated with laparoscopic operations in which surgeons use tiny instruments and a miniature camera inserted into the body through minor incisions. Robotic surgery goes even further: in this case, the small tools are attached to robotic arms.

Robotic heart surgery eliminates the need for an open operation. Instead of opening the rib cage, the surgeon gains access through tiny incisions. The method is more comfortable for the patient and reduces their recovery time. Nearly all procedures in cardiovascular surgery can be performed via minimally invasive robotic surgery, including valve repair and replacement (e.g., transcatheter aortic valve implantation), robotic bypass surgery, surgery to correct rhythm disorders, orifice repair, and surgery to correct problems in the right or left atria.

Robot-assisted surgery provides a solution for patients who have undergone multiple heart surgeries. Performing open surgery on such patients in the presence of a cardiac valve problem is very risky, since opening the breastbone can damage the heart. At Acibadem, such patients can still be operated on using the da Vinci robotic system. The previous surgical site is left untouched, and access to the area is achieved through a small incision of three to four centimeters in the armpit. Furthermore, robotic heart surgery can be performed on a beating heart. This means that it is not necessary to stop the heart, and there is no disruption to cardiac functioning. This surgery takes less time than conventional surgery and minimizes the risk of infection, bleeding, and the need for a blood transfusion.

Robotic Surgery in General Surgery

General surgery involves conditions of the abdomen and digestive tract, including the stomach, liver, pancreas, gallbladder, and intestines. Most of these conditions can be treated with minimally invasive techniques. The da Vinci robot can be used for a range of diseases, such as hernias, obesity, colorectal cancer, and inflammatory intestinal diseases.

  • Robotic colorectal surgery.¬†Da Vinci robotic surgery is used in the surgical treatment of many colorectal diseases, including colorectal cancer (cancer that starts in the colon or the rectum), diverticulitis, and inflammatory bowel disease. For rectal surgery, in particular, robotic surgery ensures that the nerves adjacent to the surgical area are protected.
  • Robotic bariatric surgery.¬†Robot-assisted surgery facilitates surgery in patients with obesity and shortens the recovery time. Among surgeries for obesity performed using the da Vinci robot, gastric bypass is the most common. This method is also considered the gold standard in other surgeries to help with obesity. It not only enables the reduction of the stomach but also deactivates a certain part of the intestines, reducing the absorption of food.

This allows a broader range of movement and higher precision compared to a human hand. Unlike common belief, robotic surgery is not performed by an autonomous robot. All movements are controlled by a surgeon who sits at a console and monitors the progress on a high-definition monitor. Therefore, the surgeon’s skills and expertise are crucial for ensuring a positive outcome.

ACIBADEM Robotic Surgery in Gynecology

For some women, robot-assisted procedures can be an effective alternative to open gynecological surgery. Various conditions affecting the reproductive system might require surgery, such as endometriosis, abdominal and pelvic pain, uterine fibroids, abnormal bleeding, pelvic organ prolapse, or gynecological cancer. Robotic surgery is commonly used for the treatment of endometrial, cervical, and ovarian cancer; robotic hysterectomy (removal of the uterus); myomectomy (removal of myomas); and fallopian tube surgery. Advanced procedures, such as laparoscopic or robotic surgery, performed by our experienced surgical teams can preserve the nerves in the genital area, protecting the patient’s sexual and urinary function.

ACIBADEM Robotic Surgery in Urology

Urology is the field in which robotic surgery systems are most commonly used. This medical specialty treats conditions of the urinary tract and reproductive system in men. Surgeons prefer to use the da Vinci robot to relieve kidney blockage with pyeloplasty, treat kidney cancer with robotic partial nephrectomy (removal of part of the kidney), or eliminate prostate cancer with radical prostatectomy (removal of the prostate gland). While conventional prostate surgery involves a long abdominal incision from the belly button to the pubic bone, robotic prostatectomy is a minimally invasive procedure conducted through tiny incisions. It allows the surgeon to preserve delicate structures around the prostate gland. In addition to a shorter hospital stay and quicker recovery, da Vinci robotic surgery delivers better results in terms of urinary control and erectile function compared to traditional operations.

Our Robotic Surgery Services

In da Vinci Surgical Robotic system, the surgeon performs surgeries through small incisions. The surgeon performs the surgery by operating a console. Surgical instruments of da Vinci robot simultaneously fulfill the surgeon‚Äôs commands that are transmitted from the console. Another surgeon who stays nearby the patient helps the surgeon who uses the console. Robot-assisted surgery is performed using thin tubes, called ‚Äúport, ” similar to those used in laparoscopic surgery.

Robot-assisted Surgery in Obesity Surgery

Gastric bypass gets the first rank among obesity surgeries performed with da Vinci. This technique aims reduced volume of stomach along with bypassing a part of intestines in order to decrease absorption of nutrients. ACIBADEM Healthcare Group offers diagnosis and treatment services for obesity at Fulya, Maslak, KadńĪk√∂y, BakńĪrk√∂y, Atakent, Taksim and Altunizade Hospitals in Istanbul along with Adana, EskiŇüehir and Kayseri Hospitals. Obesity is caused by various factors and affects numerous organs in human body. Therefore, the treatment should be planned through a multidisciplinary approach, in which more than one medical department work in harmony. Patients who present for obesity treatment are primarily assessed by endocrinologist, dietician, psychiatrist, physiatrist and exercise consultant. The patient is also assessed by cardiologists and pulmonologists, if deemed necessary.

Robot-assisted Surgery in Colorectal Surgery

da Vinci can be used for surgical management of many colorectal diseases, especially including colorectal cancers, diverticula and inflammatory bowel disease. In rectal surgery, it ensures protection of the nerves located nearby the surgical site. Colorectal surgery includes a wide range of surgical procedures that can treat conditions affecting the lower digestive tract, ranging from hemorrhoids to diverticulitis to cancer. Many procedures can be performed using minimally invasive, or laparoscopic or robotic, techniques. Colorectal surgeons have completed specialized training on the surgical care of conditions affecting the small bowel, colon, rectum and anus. The two primary categories of colorectal surgeries are abdominal surgery and anorectal surgery.

How is da Vinci Robot used?

The da Vinci Robot Surgical System is an advanced robotic platform designed to expand the surgeon’s capabilities and offer an option to open surgery. U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the da Vinci Robot Surgical System in 2000. Thousands of surgeons around the world have been trained on da Vinci Robot systems and have completed more than 7 million surgical procedures using da Vinci Robot surgical systems. There are three main integrated sub-systems of the da Vinci Robot Surgical System which include the surgeon console, the patient-side cart and the electronic cart.

The Surgeon Console makes the surgeon can see the surgical field and control the movement of the endoscopic instruments and the endoscope (the device that allows viewing of the patient’s internal organs and cavities).

Patient Side Cart with mechanical arms that support the endoscopic instrument and camera during surgery.

The Electronic Car is a part of the system that contains the supporting hardware. Elements of this equipment are the electric surgical unit (ESU), suction/irrigation pumps, insufflator, and light source for the endoscope.

The da Vinci Robot System’s ergonomic design allows the surgeon to operate from a comfortable, seated position at the console, with eyes and hands positioned in line with the instruments. The surgeon can move the instruments or the camera as he/she wishes, with the commands he/she gives with his/her hands.

The da Vinci Robot vision system delivers 3D high-definition views, giving surgeon a crystal clear view of the surgical area that is magnified 10 times to what the human eye sees.By providing surgeons with superior vision, enhanced dexterity, greater precision and ergonomic comfort, the da Vinci Robot Surgical System makes it possible for more surgeons to perform minimally invasive procedures involving complex and delicate dissection or reconstruction.
