Robotic Surgery

Robot-assisted laproscopic surgery, which has been used in the world since 1997, provides the same image as the human eye with its 3D cameras and closed surgery in human hand functions with the ability of the robot arms to rotate like the wrist. With Da Vinci Robotic Surgery, many challenging operations are successfully carried out with the closed method.

In Which Diseases Is Robotic Surgery Used in Gynecology?

Robotic surgery can be used in all surgeries that can be performed with laparoscopic surgery and may even require open surgery due to its difficulty. However, most often; It is used in Endometriosis Surgery, Myomectomy, Hysterectomy, Cyst and Gynecological cancer cases.

The three-dimensional imaging system is inserted into the opera- tion area through small incisions made on the skin. Since the imaging device is under the control of the robot, there is no flickering and the image clarity does not deteriorate, and we can get as close as we want with a magnifying glass. A three-dimensional imaging system is inserted into the area. The robotic arms enter through very small incisions and with their mobility, maximum sensitivity is shown to the surrounding tissue during the operation.

If the robot is doing all of these, we seem to hear you say where is the doctor. Since the robot does not have any information about decision-making and which operation to perform in which area, the surgery is performed with the hands, knowledge and experience of the doctor in robotic surgery, as in all surgeries. The robot is a surgical method recommended only to reduce the risks with the developing technology and to facilitate the patient's return to daily life quickly.

Robotic surgery is the gold standard in surgery for removing and cleaning tissues such as fibroids and endometriosis cancer located in sensitive areas, especially in risky surgeries. The first doctor to initiate Single port (Scarless Surgery) in Robotic Surgery, Prof. Dr. Fatih Şendağ is an expert in Endometriosis (Chocolate Cyst), Hysteroscopy (removal of the uterus), myomectomy (removal of fibroids), surgical interventions of the fallopian tubes, robotic surgeries in urinary incontinence, vaginal prolapse, uterine prolapse and cancer surgery.

Since it is operated with incisions smaller than 1 cm on the abdominal wall, the patient has less pain after surgery compared to open surgery and provides much faster recovery. The length of stay in the hospital is reduced and it provides a quick return to daily life. Since it is made with small incisions, the risk of damaging the surrounding tissue is almost completely eliminated, but this risk still exists in open surgery. Due to less blood loss, robotic surgery minimizes the risk in elderly or risky patients.

The movements of the camera and surgical arms are limited in laparoscopic surgery. However, in robotic surgery, the camera and surgical arms are much more flexible and comprehensive. In laparoscopic surgery, camera clarity is less, whereas in robotic surgery, a three-dimensional and clearer image can be obtained. While the hand vibrations of the doctor are reflected on the laparoscope devices in laparoscopic surgery, there is no such possibility in robotic surgery and the risk of damaging the surrounding tissue is negligible in robotic surgery. In long operations such as cancer surgery, the possibility of making mistakes and being distracted by the doctor in robotic surgery is eliminated because he sits down. The patient recovers faster and experiences much less pain due to all factors.
