  • What is Robotic Surgery?

    Robotic surgery is a method that has been practiced since 1970 and is usually used for interventions in complex situations. Robotic surgery can help perform surgical procedures more precisely, safely, and less invasively (operating incisions). Robotic surgery technology allows surgeons to perform surgery more accurately, precisely and safely. In the continuation of the article, you can find more comprehensive information about robotic surgery.

    In Which Treatment Methods is Robotic Surgery Used?

    The use of robotic surgery depends on the type of disease and the general health of the patient. This method is generally used for the surgery of more complex and hard-to-reach areas. Some of the conditions in which robotic surgery is used are as follows:

    • Heart and lung diseases
    • Gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy and obesity
    • Tonsillitis
    • Neurological diseases such as scoliosis, spinal stenosis, hernia
    • Problems with the prostate, kidney or bladder
    • Some gynecological diseases such as uterine prolapse, chocolate cyst or myomas
    • Some gastrointestinal diseases, such as gallbladder, pancreas, esophagus or liver
    • Laryngeal cleft
    • Cancer

    In Which Surgeries is Robotic Surgery Used?

    Robotic surgery allows the surgeon to more precisely control hand movements via robotic arms. During the robotic surgery procedure, the surgeon sits at a console and robotic arms and instruments perform the operation inside the patient's body. The console gives the surgeon a high-resolution and 3-dimensional view of the area to be operated on. These robotic arms mimic the surgeon's hand movements and guide instruments very precisely. Some of the surgeries where robotic surgery is used are as follows:

    • Robotic surgery kidney operation
    • Robotic surgery hair transplantation
    • Robotic surgery prostate
    • Robotic surgery urology
    • Robotic surgery bypass
    • Robotic surgery bladder cancer
    • Robotic surgery heart operation

    Which Gynecological Diseases are Robotic Surgeries Used in?

    Robotic surgery can be used for the operation of various gynecological diseases. Some of these are as follows:

    • Endometriosis (chocolate cyst)
    • Cervical cancer
    • Ovarian cancer
    • Uterine cancer
    • Myomas
