Robotic-assisted surgeries can be the besttreatment option for patient with urological cancer

Srinagar: Robotic surgeries have shown promising results with the advancement of healthcare technologies. Surgical robotic systems and a wide range of surgical procedures are now widely available throughout the world, including India. With a greater emphasis on standardizing robotic surgical procedure, it is critical to raise patient awareness of the benefits of a robotic surgical approach for urologic cancers. In the coming years, the scope and implementation of this treatment modality are likely to be the most preferred treatment option.
In the field of urologic oncology, robotic-assisted surgery (RAS) has primarily been used to treat patients with prostate, kidney, and bladder cancer. Robotic technology has enabled urologists to perform minimally invasive surgery using laparoscopic techniques. During a robotic surgery, a surgeon and a dedicated team control the robotic arms and their EndoWrists, which grasp the surgical instruments from a console while operating through small incisions. A high-definition image of the surgical field is provided by a camera that is inserted through a separate incision.
