Experienced Robotic Care

Experience is important for all types of surgery, but the right experience is essential for minimally invasive and robotic surgery. There is a steep learning curve associated with minimally invasive surgery, because it's very different than operating through a large chest incision. Even otherwise highly experienced surgeons must devote dozens of hours to learning how to use the techniques and equipment for minimally invasive surgery. After learning how to use these tools, the surgeon must regularly perform minimally invasive robotic surgery to truly master the approach.

Volume counts. There is a great deal of difference between a surgeon who has performed 15 minimally invasive procedures and a surgeon who has done hundreds of cases. ICRS surgeons have both
experience and volume.

Numerous Benefits

Highly complex surgical procedures that normally require large open incisions can now be performed through finger-tip sized incisions utilizing robotic assistance. Experience has shown that minimally invasive robotic surgery offers numerous benefits over conventional surgeries, including:

    •  Most precise operation

    •  Less trauma

    •  Less blood loss & fewer transfusions

    •  Faster functional recovery

    •  Lesser complications

    •  Lesser risk of wound infections

    •  Shorter hospital stay

 

Types of surgeries in each speciality:

    •  Heart Surgeries – Bypass, valve, congenital defects, tumors, irregular heart rhythm

    •  Lung & Chest - Lung resections for benign and cancer tumors, surgery for thymus gland, esophageal surgery

    •  Urology - Prostate cancer, kidney and bladder tumors, reconstruction of Urinary Tract

    •  Gynaecology - Benign and cancer tumors of uterus, cervix, ovary, reconstruction of pelvic floor, tubal reversal

    •  General Surgery - Colorectal surgery, hiatal hernia, pancreas, liver, adrenal, complex bile duct surgery

    •  Head and Neck - Oral pharyngeal surgery for cancer, thyroid surgery
