Robotic G.I. Surgery

Have you heard about robotic surgery in India? Sterling Hospitals has added another feather in its cap in the form of Sterling Robotic Surgery Institute (SRSI) for robotic surgeries – an enhanced and advanced form of surgery that has revolutionized surgical procedures across the world. At Sterling Robotic Surgery Institute (SRSI), experts use advanced robotic technology to heal patients in an enhanced manner.  Robotic surgery means less pain, smaller incisions, and less time in hospital, which translates into less time away from work and family.

SRSI offers you a potent combination of expertise, knowledge, and technology in the field of robotic surgery. Using this procedure, complicated surgeries can be performed with greater precision and ease. We have the most comprehensive set-up, which offers a broad spectrum of robotic surgeries. We also have well-trained surgeons (who have undergone special robotic surgery training) on-board along with a modular OT, which is well-equipped with the most advanced da VinciTM Surgical System, for minimally invasive surgery.

We are fully specialized in Robotic G.I. Surgery, wherein the da VinciTM surgical robot can be used either on its own or can assist in laparoscopic surgery, since it provides more precision to the surgical procedure.  Today, the following robotic assisted surgeries are being performed with increased frequency:

  • Pancreatectomy  (surgical removal of the pancreas)
  • Whipple’s Procedure
  • Duodenectomy
  • GI Cancers like
    • stomach cancer
    • large/small intestine
    • liver cancer
    • oesophageal cancer
    • pancreatic cancer
    • gall bladder cancer
  • Heller Myotomy (a surgical procedure wherein the muscles of the lower oesophageal sphincter are cut, allowing food and liquids to pass to the stomach.)
  • Umbilical/Incisional/Inguinal Hiatus Hernia & huge Para Oesophageal Hernia (A bulging of an organ/ tissue through an abnormal opening)

Robotic Bariatric Surgery

This Surgery can be beneficial in areas where doctors recommend gastric sleeve/bypass/mini gastric bypass to treat obesity. In actuality, robotic bariatric surgery has revolutionized the bariatric/obesity surgery ecosystem.  Bariatric surgery has several numerous potential benefits over traditional laparoscopic surgery including the following:

  • Significantly lower rates of gastrointestinal leaks
  • Low wound infection rate
  • Less chance of port site injuries
  • Smaller risk of conversion to traditional procedures.
  • Beneficial in super obesity  (BMI more than 40)
