Robotic surgery or robotic prostatectomy is a form of prostate cancer surgery done by a surgeon with the help of Advanced Robotic Technique (ART), which uses a robot. The robotic machine is equipped with 3-D HD vision, scaling of movements and wristed instrumentation. Also called da Vinci surgery, robotic prostate cancer surgery is an unconventional method of treating cancer, which is yet not available in all the hospitals.
How Robotic Prostate Cancer Surgery is conducted
The prostate cancer surgery is a robot-assisted process and does not require any direct mechanical contact between the surgeon and his patient. The doctor works on a computer console to develop a sequence of surgical steps required to remove the cancerous mass from the prostate. The doctor has a 3-D view of the operating field.
How does the Surgeon perform the Robotic Surgery
While viewing the 3-D images of the surgery, the surgeon instructs and manipulates the robotic machine using the computer console. The Advanced Robotic Technique translates the instructions of the surgeon into movements of the microsurgical instruments of the robotic machine in the patient’s body to perform the complex prostate cancer surgery.

Robotic Surgery versus Standard Laparoscopic Surgery
Robotic prostatectomy has unmatched advantages over the standard surgical process of operating prostate cancer. Take a look at why robotic surgery is a better option for treating prostate cancer.
There are numerous hospitals in the most prominent cities of India— Chennai, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Bangalore and Delhi that are equipped with robotic prostate cancer surgery technique along with other world class healthcare facilities.
