Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgery Q & A
What is minimally invasive robotic surgery?
Minimally invasive robotic surgery is a cutting-edge approach to many different surgical procedures.
In this type of surgery, Dr. Mullangi performs the procedure assisted by robotic arms that make precise movements as he controls the device remotely from a magnified high-definition monitor.
Minimally invasive robotic surgery only requires very small incisions, which has several benefits over open surgery, which traditionally requires a large cut.
How does minimally invasive robotic surgery work?
You'll typically receive general anesthesia for robotic surgery procedures. During your robotic surgery procedure, Dr. Mullangi controls all the movements of the surgical system with pinpoint accuracy.
He directs the robotic arms to create one or more small incisions, and then manipulates the arms to perform your procedure using miniature surgical tools as he watches every move on the monitor.
The robotic arms never move until Dr. Mullangi initiates a movement with his own hands. These robotic arms offer a precision unmatched by any human arms and hands. The arms can rotate in a way that human wrists can't, and the robotic arm never shakes whatsoever.
With this approach, Dr. Mullangi has the maximum flexibility and accuracy to ensure excellent results.
What minimally invasive robotic surgery procedures are available?
Dr. Mullangi is an experienced surgeon who regularly performs many procedures using robotic technology. Some of the procedures he may perform using this method include:
- Inguinal hernia repair
- Ventral hernia repair
- Gallbladder surgery
- Sleeve gastrectomy
- Roux-en-Y gastric bypass
- Single anastomosis duodenoileostomy (SADI)
Dr. Mullangi is a general surgery specialist who may also perform other procedures using robotic technology.
What are the advantages of minimally invasive robotic surgery?
Minimally invasive robotic surgery offers tremendous advantages, including:
- Less damage to healthy tissue
- Much smaller incisions
- Less scarring
- Less pain after the procedure
- Reduced risk of excessive bleeding
- Reduced risk of infection
You can expect a faster recovery after minimally invasive robotic surgery as compared to traditional open surgery.
