Adding to its achievements in robotic surgery, Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Mumbai recently performed the fastest 50 robotic surgeries — in 70 days, giving a new lease of life to the patients with greater precision and safety.
Dr T.B. Yuvaraja, Consultant Uro-Oncologist, Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, said: In robotic surgeries, surgeons perform the operations with the help of a computer that remotely controls small instruments attached to a robot. The procedures have enhanced precision and safety; and lead to less blood loss as well as better recovery. The surgeon can see the area being operated on more clearly during this type of surgery. It is a keyhole surgery which requires very small incisions. Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital is the only centre for multi-organ specialisation in robotic surgery in India.
Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital is the first in Mumbai to conduct rare surgeries using the Robotic Technology, including Robotic Adrenalectomy (Adrenal gland tumour), Robotic Anterior Exenteration (Urinary bladder cancer in females), Robotic Radical Cystectomy (Urinary bladder, creating a new bladder in same position), Video Endoscopic Inguinal Lymphadenectomy (Lymph nodes removal from groin in case of penile cancer), Sacrocolpopexy (repair pelvic prolapse), and Robotic Surgery for Endometriosis.
Dr Anshumala Shukla-Kulkarni, MD (Gynaecology & Obstetrics), Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, said: Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospitals expert doctors with good experience in performing such procedures conduct each operation meticulously with reduced pain and reduced risk of infection to the patient. Moreover, robotic technology for surgery is in the pipeline at the hospital for several other fields such as ENT/Head-Neck; Colorectal; Liver and Cardiac.
