Nanavati Max Centre for Robotic Surgery brings you the most revolutionary form of Minimally Invasive (Laparoscopic) Surgery. This procedure is performed by an expert surgeon with the assistance of a surgical robot.

Services offered at our clinic

The Da Vinci Xi is the world’s most advanced robotic surgical system and is a disruptive innovation in the field of minimally invasive surgery. This technology is specially designed to perform highly sophisticated, multi-quadrant surgery as well as relatively simpler single quadrant surgery—all while offering a high level of comfort to patients and surgeons alike.

The surgery is performed by an expert surgeon who works from a computer console installed in the operating room. He controls miniaturised instruments mounted on robotic arms that are inserted via tiny incisions into the patient’s body.

Benefits of Robotic Surgery

Robotic Surgery offers many benefits (in comparison to open surgery) to both patients and surgeons.

Benefits for Patients:

  • Shorter hospitalisation
  • Reduced pain and discomfort
  • Faster recovery time and return to normal activities
  • Smaller incisions, resulting in reduced risk of infection
  • Reduced blood loss and transfusions
  • Minimal scarring
  • Reduced wound infection
  • Better preservation of normal structures

Benefits for Surgeons:

  • Magnified vision
  • Greater precision
  • No tremor
  • Ergonomic comfort
  • Advanced suturing ability

Cost of Robotic Surgery

Robotic Surgery is slightly more expensive than regular surgery. However, it entails a shorter hospital stay, thereby decreasing hospitalisation costs considerably. Robotic Surgery also provides the advantage of a faster recovery, enabling patients to return to their normal life sooner.

Significance of an Expert Surgeon in Robotic Surgery

The entire procedure is completely controlled by the surgeon. The robotic instruments only mimic the surgeons' hand movements within the patient's body. Surgical robots are self-powered, computer-controlled devices that can be programmed to aid in the positioning and manipulation of surgical instruments. They help the surgeon perform complex surgical tasks through small incisions. Ultimately, Robotic Surgery aids the surgeon to perform the surgery with better accuracy, flexibility and control.
