Robotic Laparoscopic Surgery

What is Robotic Laparoscopy?
A major disadvantage of conventional or conventional laparoscopy. The most useful application of robotic laparoscopy in infertility surgery is the removal of uterine fibroids (myomectomy).
How is Robotic Laparoscopy done?
  • The operation involves making 5 small skin incisions through which 5 ports are inserted into the abdominal cavity to accommodate a camera and several surgical instruments.
  • A 4-arm robot is draped with sterile drapes and is ready for docking (Fig.1).
  • The robot is fully docked to the surgical instruments and the surgeon is ready to begin the operation (Fig.2).
  • During robot-assisted surgery, the surgeon sits comfortably at a console by the patient’s bedside (Fig.3), executing delicate robotic movements with finger tip control(Fig.4).

Robotic Assisted Laparoscopy to remove a fibroid (myomectomy)
  • The fibroid is injected with a solution to prevent bleeding during surgery (Fig. 5).
  • The uterus is cut open to expose the fibroid (Fig.6).
  • The fibroid is grasped and removed from the uterus (Fig. 7).
  • The uterine incision is closed with sutures and the operation is completed (Fig. 8).
  • The surgeon performs the entire surgery and is in full control of the robotic functions throughout the procedure.
