Fortis utilize the latest and most advanced robotic surgical techniques for treating gastrointestinal cancers and disorders. Robotic assisted approach prioritizes minimal invasiveness with precision and offers our patients better clinical outcomes and faster healing as compared to traditional open and Laparoscopic surgery. By minimizing surgical trauma, we strive to enhance the long-term survival rates and quality of life for our patients.

Robotic surgery also plays a big role in effective surgery of Gastrointestinal cancers. Common types of gastrointestinal cancers like stomach cancer, oesophageal cancer, colon cancer, pancreatic cancer etc can be better operated upon with Robotic assistance. 

  • Gastrointestinal conditions where Robotic-assisted surgery is indicated

    - Hernias
    - Gallbladder Disease
    - GI and Abdominal Cancers

  • Common Gastrointestinal procedures performed by Robotic-assisted surgery

    - Robotic-Assisted Colectomy
    - Robotic-Assisted Esophagectomy
    - Robotic-Assisted Hernia Repair
    - Robotic-Assisted Whipple Procedure

  • Benefits specific to Robotic-assisted Surgery in Gastrointestinal

    - Smaller incisions and minimal scarring
    - Precise removal of cancerous tissue
    - Reduced pain and discomfort
    - Reduced blood loss and need for transfusions
    - Faster recovery time
    - Shorter hospital stays
    - Faster return to normal daily activities

  • What is the Robotic Surgical System?

    It is a system consisting of three parts:
    Surgeon Console is the control centre where your surgeon sits to perform the operation.
    Patient Cart holds the camera and surgical instruments your surge on controls from the console.
    Vision Cart manages the communication between all the system components and provides a screen for the care team to view the operation.

  • Why is your surgeon suggesting Robotic Assisted Surgery? What are the benefits?

    Surgical Robotic Systems have been widely adopted by surgeons and benefited millions of patients. More than 8.0 million robotic-assisted procedures have taken place worldwide, roughly, every 26 seconds, a patient somewhere in the world gets operated through Robotic Assisted Surgeries.

    Just as technology, such as MRI and CT scanners enhance clinicians’ skills beyond what the human body allows, RAS system extends the capabilities of a surgeon’s eyes and hands. With RAS your surgeon:
    • Stays with you in the operating room and uses his or her hands to control a camera and surgical instruments to perform the procedure.
    • Views the entire operation in 3-dimensional high definition (3DHD), giving your surgeon a crystal- clear view of the surgical area that is magnified 10 times to what the human eye sees.
    • Uses tiny instruments that move like a human hand but with an even greater range of motion. The system’s built-in tremor-filtration technology helps your surgeon to move each instrument with smooth precision.

    By providing surgeons with superior visualization, enhanced dexterity, greater precision and ergonomic comfort, Robotic surgical systems make it possible for skilled surgeons to perform minimally invasive procedures involving complex dissection or reconstruction.

  • Which type of robot is used for robotic surgery?

    Fortis Hospitals boasts of highly advanced, latest 4th generation robotic surgery system - the DaVinci Robotic platform.

  • What are the outcomes?

    1. Smaller incisions and less scarring
    2. Precision in surgery
    3. Fewer complications
    4. Less postoperative pain and Less need for pain medication
    5. Reduced hospital stay and faster healing
    6. Quicker return to normal activity
