Patel Hospital in Jalandhar has created a benchmark of healthcare and hospitality.
This 200-bed hospital has 65 beds dedicated for the cancer patients. More importantly, it also has robot-assisted surgical systems in place.
The robot-assisted surgery system is for the patients of Urology, Head and Neck (ENT), Gynaecology, Bariatric and Gastro-Intestinal surgeries.
It provides robotic laparoscopic surgery for uro-oncology patients including patients suffering from cancer of prostate, bladder, kidney, testicles, and gynae-oncology.
Robotic Colorectal and Oesophageal surgery is also carried out at the Patel Hospital.
The benefits of robotic surgery are the following: The robot-assisted surgery helps in shorter hospital stay. It reduces post-operative pain. The surgical intervention is very precise and the blood loss during operation is less. Even the risk of infection is low.
Robotically-assisted surgery are terms for technological developments that use robotic systems to aid in surgical procedures. Robotically-assisted surgery was developed to overcome the limitations of pre-existing minimally-invasive surgical procedures. It also enhances the capabilities of surgeons performing open surgery.
In the case of robotically-assisted minimally-invasive surgery, instead of directly moving the instruments, the surgeon uses one of the two methods to control the instruments: Either with the help of a direct telemanipulator or through computer control. A telemanipulator is a remote manipulator that allows the surgeon to perform the normal movements associated with the surgery while the robotic arms carry out those movements using end-effectors and manipulators to perform the actual surgery on the patient.
