According to medical science, urology is one of the most difficult fields for physicians and they should have a specialization of treating disorders occurring in the genitourinary tract of men, women, and children. Additionally, for men prostates and testicles are some of the vulnerable areas where complex urological diseases often occur. The importance of high-end technologies for the treatment of kidney or urological diseases is recognized by everyone now worldwide. Currently, da Vinci Robotic Surgery is a boon for all complicated surgeries.

What is Da Vinci Robotic Surgery?

Da Vinci Robotic Surgery is a minimally invasive surgery where the four penciled arms of the robot are performing the surgery, fully controlled by the robotic surgeon. The robotic surgeon controls the robot from the console and provides instructions to the robot from the camera. Though the robot carries out the surgery but it is actually a well-trained robotic surgeon who is monitoring all its movements like how to use forceps and other instruments. As a matter of fact, if there is any negligence from the surgeon’s end, it can prove fatal for the patient – so the physician controlling the robot is a highly experienced person.

There is lot of advantages of Robotic Surgery. Since the operation procedure is minimally invasive, the patience experiences moderately less pain and very few complications. In addition, there is a very minimal blood loss and less scarring, resulting in faster recovery process. Robotic surgery has enhanced the rate of survival for prostate cancer patients and has ensured smooth urinary and sexual function among patients.

India is really making its mark in the field of robotic surgery for treating urological diseases. There are many best urology hospitals and urologists in India providing best treatments for patients through its state-of-art technologies. Hospitals like Apollo, Fortis Healthcare, and MPUH-Centre for Robotic Surgery in Nadiad, Gujarat are some of the hospitals leading robotic surgery and have continued much ahead in healing urological diseases.

India is a well-known place for medical treatment because of low cost treatment combined with state-of-the-art technologies. Be it any complex treatments such as prostate cancer surgery, bladder cancer surgery, kidney cancer surgery and pediatric surgery patients across the world are favoring India for its medical facilities. Modern technology used in the treatment process ensures minimal chances for making any types of mistakes during surgery.
