Indore: Da Vinci Robotic Technology organised a display of super-efficient surgical tool, Da Vinci robot at Medanta Hospital here on Tuesday. The hospital has already started robotic surgery OPD, and will soon install the Da Vinci robotic surgery unit to run a dedicated clinic on its campus.

Aimed at spreading awareness among doctors as well as patients across the city and also giving common people an opportunity to witness the massive advancements made in the field of medical engineering, the exhibition described the basic functions and features of the robot, which helps perform various operations like urological, cancer, gynaecological, cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal and general surgeries in the most easiest, time efficient and accurate way.

DA Vinci’s robot is believed to be one of the most advanced platforms in world for minimally invasive surgery. The instrument, which enables surgeons to perform delicate and complex surgeries just through a few tiny incisions, will also help them maximise skills.

Describing the impressive features of the surgical system, senior consultant urologist Dr Ravi Nagar said “The Da Vinci surgical system assists surgeons by offering an immersive view of the surgical field, improved dexterity, enhanced precision, and increased comfort while performing a surgery. With its aid, it is possible for surgeons to perform procedures involving complex reconstruction or dissection in areas of the body, which are difficult to access in open surgeries such as pelvic cavity. Since there is minimum hand contact to the operative field any chances of infections also minimised.”

“The machine features a magnified high-definition 3D vision system, which gives the surgeon an impeccable view of what is happening inside the body. The robotic arms attached to the machine are wristed and can bend at a greater angle, as compared to any human hand. The robot will be helpful especially for the complex surgeries of cancer and other life threatening diseases,” Dr Nagar added.

Bariatric surgery expert, Dr Amitabh Goel explained that “Da Vinci Surgery is one of the options of minimally invasive surgery, which has brought minimally invasive surgery to more than 3 million patients worldwide. It is changing the experience of surgery for people around the world.”
