Urological Robotic Surgery

 

Urological Robotic Surgery

Robotic surgery, computer-assisted surgery, and robotically-assisted surgery are terms for technological developments that use robotic systems to aid in surgical procedures. Robotically-assisted surgery was developed to overcome the limitations of pre-existing minimally-invasive surgical procedures and to enhance the capabilities of surgeons performing open surgery.

Robotic surgery in the field of urology has become very popular, especially in the United States. It has been most extensively applied for excision of prostate cancer because of difficult anatomical access. It is also utilized for kidney cancer surgeries and to lesser extent surgeries of the bladder.

 

Prostate Cancer Robotic Surgery

Robot assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) is one of the most common treatments for prostate cancer in the United States.

Urological Robotic Surgery is used for a number of urological diseases and conditions including:

• Prostate cancer 
• Kidney cancer
• Kidney dysfunction
• Urinary tract disorders in children
• Congenital abnormalities in children

Benefits of Urological Robotic Surgery

Robotic surgery enables surgeons to perform a more precise operation than conventional surgery. It offers several potential benefits over a conventional open surgery, including:

• Significantly less pain 
• Less blood loss
• Less risk of infection 
• Less scarring 
• Shorter hospital stay 
• Quicker recovery time 
• Better clinical outcomes in many cases

As with any surgical procedure, benefits cannot be guaranteed. Successful outcomes depend on the procedure and the patient.
