Robotics in colorectal surgery

2

Robotic surgery is now an extremely useful option in Colorectal surgery.

If medicine or lifestyle changes do not help a colorectal condition, the doctor may suggest surgery.

Thanks to a breakthrough surgical technology, there is a new category of minimally invasive surgery, an effective, minimally invasive alternative to both open surgery and laparoscopy. This is the da Vinci® Robotic Surgical System, which enables surgeons to offer a minimally invasive option for complex surgical procedures. The da Vinci System gives surgeons:

  • A 3D HD view inside the body
  • Wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand
  • Enhanced vision, precision and control

Common colorectal conditions that may need surgery include:

  • Diverticulitis
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease)
  • Colon Cancer
  • Rectal Cancer

Surgery to remove all or part of the colon is known as a colectomy, and rectal cancer surgery to remove part or all or the rectum is known as a rectal resection. Minimally invasive surgery can be done using traditional laparoscopy or robotic-assisted da Vinci Surgery.

Robotics in spine surgery
The Renaissance™ Robotic Technology has been specifically designed for spine surgery .This transforms spine surgery from freehand procedures to highly-accurate, state-of-the-art robotic procedures, with less radiation.

It is used for procedures including

  • Minimally invasive surgery (MIS),
  • Correction of Scoliosis and other complex spinal deformities.
  • Complex reconstructions on childhood deformities
  • Minimally invasive surgeries for low back disorders
  • Osteotomies
  • Biopsies

Conventional, freehand MIS presents many challenges. According to literature, in freehand surgery there are instances of misplaced pedicle screws and high levels of radiation are required for intraoperative imaging to assure accuracy. Renaissance™ Robotics’ state-of-the-art technology overcomes these challenges thus redefining the standard of care for MIS.

A 10-year-old from Gujarat was born with congenital anomalies that left her with a severely deformed spine. The child had already undergone multiple procedures that had failed and left her with rods placed in her back, broken at multiple places, and a spine that was grossly deformed.

The doctors’ team faced several challenges in treating the child. But Renaissance™ Robotic Technology allowed a successful spinal fixation with extreme precision and safety in carrying out the delicate maneuver to correct the deformed spine. A child otherwise doomed to go through life with the severe deformity –which could have led to premature death due to cardiopulmonary failure or eventual paralysis – can now lead a normal life like any other 10-year-old.
