Mumbai: Ambani hospital launches robotic surgical system

Mumbai: The Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital and Medical Research Institute on Sunday launched a robotic surgical system which helps overcoming the limitations of the conventional keyhole or laparoscopic surgery.

The surgery, called da Vinci Robotic Surgery, 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 in Mumbai.

The robot allows a surgeon’s hand movements to be filtered and translated into precise micro-movements of tiny instruments, it said, adding the precision translates into smaller incisions, less blood loss and faster recovery time.
