Evolution of Gynae & Cancer Surgeries With Robotics

Dr. Swapna Misra Jan 23, 2024

Evolution of Gynae & Cancer Surgeries with Robotics
Fortis Hospital Mohali, has the most advanced da Vinci Surgical Robot and the latest 4th generation robotic platform. It is the next frontier for minimally invasive surgery and dramatically enhances the visualization, precision, control and dexterity of the surgical procedure by helping the surgeons in performing complex surgery in a manner that has never been experienced before.
Surgical robot complements the expertise and experience of surgeons to the maximum. The Robot-assisted arms are found to be more stable, precise, and can reach the inner most regions of the body more easily than a human hand. Therefore, this surgery ensures greater accuracy, enhanced motion range and better dexterity to surgeons. In addition, the 3D vision provided by the camera renders a more detailed view to the surgeon. It provides easier access, better surgical outcome and the overall procedure.
From patient’s perspective, the benefits include precise surgical procedure with improved outcomes along with lesser blood loss. It additionally lowers risk of infection after the surgery, which leads to a shorter period of stay in the hospital. There is reduced post-operative pain. One can see that there is lesser scarring due to minimal incisions. If you are looking for a quicker recovery, then robotic surgery is the best way to go.

What all Gynae surgeries can be performed with robotics?
Through robotics, almost all Gynae surgeries can be performed including cancer surgery, fibroids, endometriosis, Vesicovaginal fistula, ovarian cyst, Salpingo-oophorectomy, ovarian (Overietomy, Cystectomy), myomectomy, and hysterectomy, cancers involving uterus, ovary and cervix.
According to Dr Swapna Misra, Additional Director, Gynaecology, Obstetrics and Robotic Surgery, ‘’Robotic Surgery is the biggest revolution in the management of Gynaecological problems like endometriosis, Gynaecological cancers, fibroids, cysts etc. The post-operative pain relief are unique to it.’’

 Is robotic Gynae surgery better than open surgery?
Robotic surgery is much more advanced and it helps surgeons to perform complex surgeries with greater ease. These robot-assisted arms are found to be more stable, precise, and can reach to the interior regions of the human body more easily than a human hand.
Therefore, this surgery ensures greater accuracy, enhanced motion range; better dexterity to surgeons as compared to open surgery. Robotic surgery makes it easier for surgeons to carry out complex procedures without making big incisions. The limitations associated with conventional laparoscopic surgical techniques trigger the need for a more advanced minimally invasive surgical technique.

 What is my recovery time after a robotic Gynae surgery?
Robotic Surgery leads to shorter hospital stay. Recovery from traditional Gynaecology surgery take two months or longer, whereas recovery time for a patient who has had robotic surgery can be as little as half the length of traditional recovery time from open surgery. Within 24 hours patient can be discharged from hospital and back to household work within 2 days and back to normal routine within 1 week.
Mrs Kavita Bhatia who had undergone robotic hysterectomy and was discharged within 36 hours said, ‘’I had the best experience at Fortis Hospital, Mohali. Dr Swapna showed immense faith and confidence in me and I was back to my routine on the second day of surgery. I experienced no pain and was extremely comfortable’’.
