What Is Robot-Assisted Laparoscopic Surgery?

Robot-assisted laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive surgery conducted with the help of surgical robots. It involves making small incisions in the patient’s abdomen and then using robotic arms to perform the actual surgery. 

Robot-assisted laparoscopic surgery can be performed by specialist surgeons who have been trained in the use of robotic arms and other advanced technologies used in minimally invasive surgeries. These specialists have a deep understanding of the different types of surgeries, as well as expertise in handling and programming surgical robots to ensure high-quality results.

What Are the Advantages of Laparoscopic Procedures?

Robotic-assisted surgery can help make complex surgeries easier and less invasive than traditional open surgery. Robotic laparoscopy uses high-precision technologies to enhance optics and precisely navigate inside the body and perform surgical tasks with greater accuracy, control, and precision than manual techniques. 

Robotic-assisted laparoscopy can improve the safety, accuracy, and outcomes of complex surgical operations while reducing patient recovery time. Robotic-assisted surgery can also help to minimize blood loss, decrease pain and discomfort, reduce scarring, and shorten hospital stays.

What Conditions Does Laparoscopic Surgery Treat?

Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive type of surgery that can be used to treat a variety of conditions. Some common conditions that can be treated laparoscopically are:

  • Pelvic endometriosis
  • Myomectomy
  • Hysterectomy
  • Colorectal surgery
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Diverticulitis 
  • Appendicitis
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Hernia repair
  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm

What to Expect with Laparoscopic Surgery

During a robot-assisted laparoscopic procedure, the surgical team will insert a thin, long camera into a patient’s abdomen. The surgeon then maneuvers tiny robotic arms to move surgical tools and perform the operation. 

The surgeon has a 3D view of the procedure, allowing them to operate with greater accuracy than traditional laparoscopy, resulting in better patient outcomes.

Recovery After Robotic Laparoscopic Surgery

Many patients will go home on the same day as the surgery. Select patients may stay overnight depending on the length of operative time or the complexity of the surgical procedure.

For most people, the recovery time following laparoscopic surgery is between one and two weeks. Your doctor will provide you with specific instructions on how to care for yourself during this time period, including when to follow up with them for a check-up or additional tests.
