• Overview

    Robotic urology, also known as robot-assisted urologic surgery, is an advanced surgical technique that utilizes robotic systems to assist urologists in performing intricate procedures with enhanced precision and control. In robotic surgery, small incisions are made, and surgical instruments, including a video camera, are inserted into the cuts. These instruments are connected to robotic arms controlled by the surgeon from a robotic console. The surgeon benefits from a highly magnified and clear 3D view of the surgical area. Robotic urology procedures have revolutionized the field, allowing for minimally invasive surgeries with reduced blood loss, smaller incisions, faster recovery times, and improved surgical outcomes. Common robotic urology procedures include robotic prostatectomy, robotic nephrectomy, and robotic cystectomy.

  • What types of robotic surgery are there?

    In urology, various types of robot-assisted surgeries are performed to treat conditions like bladder, kidney, and prostate cancers, as well as non-cancerous conditions affecting these organs. The commonly used robotic procedures in urology include prostatectomy (prostate removal), partial and radical nephrectomy (kidney removal), pyelo/ureteroplasty (removal and reconstruction of urinary tract segments), cystectomy (partial or complete bladder removal), and retroperitoneal lymph node dissection (RPLND) for lymph node removal in the back of the abdomen. These robot-assisted surgeries provide patients with precise and minimally invasive treatment options. They offer benefits such as reduced postoperative pain, faster recovery times, smaller incisions, and improved surgical outcomes, enhancing the overall patient experience in urologic interventions. These advancements in robotic surgery have significantly transformed the field of urology, enabling urologists to effectively treat various urological conditions with enhanced precision and improved patient outcomes.

  • How does robotic surgery compare to open surgery?

    Robotic surgery has distinct advantages over open surgery. The smaller incisions used in robotic procedures result in reduced blood loss, less postoperative pain, and faster healing compared to the larger incisions required in open surgery. The robotic arms provide greater range of motion, enabling surgeons to perform complex procedures with precision and reach difficult-to-access areas. Additionally, the high-resolution, magnified view offered by robotic surgery enhances visualization of the surgical site. Patients undergoing robotic surgery typically experience shorter hospital stays and faster recovery, allowing them to return to their normal activities sooner. While robotic surgery may have slightly longer operating times initially, experienced surgeons can achieve comparable durations with practice and expertise.
