Robotic Bariatric Surgery in India
The most recent innovation in Bariatric surgery is the introduction of Robotic surgery. The surgeon operates the procedures through a master console and the robotic patient cart operates through tiny holes on the patient similar to laparoscopy with much ease and precision. Robotic surgery for obesity has definite advantages over conventional laparoscopic surgery due to its 3D vision and precise intuitive multi range instruments that add more safety to the patients. It also helps in better suturing skills and reduces post-operative pain and recovery time after surgery. It is indicated even for super obese patients more than 250 kgs which is more complicated and difficult to perform by laparoscopy.
