The Mumbai-based Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital and Medical Research Institute unveiled a robotic surgical system yesterday, which would help overcoming the limitations of the conventional keyhole or laproscopic surgery, IBNLive reported.
Known as da Vinci Robotic Surgery, the system was launched at an event at the hospital in Mumbai by Dr Suresh Advani, an oncologist with the Jaslok Hospital. The newly launched system helps surgeons achieve greater surgical precision, improved dexterity and superior control while performing operations, the hospital said in a statement.
The robot allows a surgeon's hand movements to be translated into precise micro-movements of tiny instruments. The robot not only allows a surgeon's hand movements to be filtered and translated into precise micro-movements of tiny instruments but also the precision translates into smaller incisions, less blood loss and faster recovery time, added the report.
