21st century has seen a boom in the medical industry with several new technologies being invented to treat complicated diseases. Da Vinci robot assisted surgery being one of them. This type of surgery has proved advantageous for both surgeons and patients for the treatment of numerous complicated diseases, including kidney related surgeries.
Kidneys play an important role in the functioning of human body system. We all know that they are two small bean-shaped organs located behind the abdomen and above the waist. Its main role is in processing blood, regulating blood pressure, maintaining calcium levels, and removing wastes, toxic substances, and excess fluids from the body. Kidney related disorders include:
• Bladder Problems
• Ureter Blockage
• Kidney Cancer and
• Kidney stones
In case when both the kidneys get damaged, “kidney transplantation” takes place.
With the help of robotic surgery the doctors are able to conduct operation with much precision that was never before possible earlier. The Da Vinci Surgical System is the state-of-the-art technology helping doctors to provide several benefits concerning kidney surgery, including less complication during operation, controlling of kidney cancer, less pain & scarring, relatively low blood loss, low risk of infection, faster recovery, and comparatively less expense because stay in hospital is much shorter.
The pencil-thin four arms of robot holing camera in one hand and surgical instruments in other three are able to operate through a patient’s body in such a precise manner compared to traditional open surgery that it is helping surgeons to gain expertise in kidney or kind of urological surgeries like never before. Though the robot is performing the operation but actually it’s the surgeon who is in total control of the machine. Sitting behind the console, the surgeon provides instruction to the robot to move its arms for conducting the operation and its every move is monitored thoroughly. A well trained person is required to provide instructions to the robot but overall the Da Vinci assisted Robotic Surgery has made the operation of complicated diseases much easier.
So it’s advisable that if a patient is suffering from a complex kidney ailment then he/she should opt for Robotic Surgery, as this will help them to return back to the day-to-day activities of their life in a faster manner.
