A robotic surgery is a computer controlled and self-powered device which can be programmed to aid in manipulation and positioning of surgical instruments. This permits the doctors to perform complex errands quite effortlessly. However the systems which are presently in use have not been designed to act self-reliantly from a human surgeon or even not ready to substitute them. Rather, these machines essentially act as remote extensions which are totally governed by surgeons and so they are best named as master slave manipulators. Luckily, two of the master slave systems have already got consent from the FDA or Food and Drug Administration of US and are being used which are the da Vinci surgical system and ZEUS system. These systems come designed with two elementary constituents which are related together with computer and data cables. The master console of the doctor is the user interface of the robot surgery which offers master surgeon numerous instructions.
Robotic surgery - clinical applications
Robotic surgery today efficiently addressed the confines of customary thoracoscopic and laparoscopic surgery thus permitting achievement of advanced and complex surgical processes with better accuracy in a plainly invasive way. As contrasting to the uncomfortable positions which are required during laparoscopic surgery, the robotic surgeon in Delhi is restfully seated on the robotic consol in a picture-perfect arrangement which specifies and decreases physical encumbrance of the surgeon. Instead of just 2-dimensional or flat image which is attained via the standard laparoscopic camera, surgeon in robotic surgery gets 3-dimensional view which improves depth insight. Furthermore, the camera motion is also very stable which is expediently controlled via the operation surgeon through manual or voice activated master controls. Additionally, the manipulation of the robotic arm instruments also improves the range of motion when equated with standard laparoscopic instruments and thus it lets the doctor to conduct more compound surgical movements. However in moderately short time the robotic processes are spanning the entire range of surgery which has been efficiently implemented. Some preliminary outcomes display that morbidity, mortality and hospital stay contrast favorable to the customary laparoscopic operations. There are just some numbers of randomized and prospective studies which equate outcomes from the robotic methods over the prevailing conservative procedures.
