Robotic Heart Surgery - the most advanced technology is available in India

Robotic Heart surgery in India

Robotic Heart Surgery in India is the latest and most advanced technique in the world to perform heart surgery with greatest precision. There are tremendous advantages of robotic system of heart surgery over traditional heart surgery which include:

  •   Faster return to normal activities. Rather than waiting several weeks to heal, patients can return to work or other activities much more quickly--usually within three weeks.
  •   Shorter hospital stay. Time spent in the hospital can sometimes be reduced by as much at 50 percent, compared to open procedures.
  •   No splitting of the breastbone. Keeping the breastbone (sternum) intact reduces the chance for post-surgical complications and infection.
  •   Smaller incisions. Depending upon the case, the operation may be performed through four to five dime-size incisions, or through a 2- to 5-inch incision at the side of the chest. Traditional open-heart procedures require a longer incision down the center of the chest.
  •   Quicker resolution of pain. Decreased damage to tissue and muscle results in pain that does not last as long as after a sternal incision. Tylenol or aspirin are often enough to manage pain after hospital discharge.
  •   Elimination of the heart-lung bypass machine, in most cases. Avoiding the bypass machine decreases the risks for neurological complications and stroke.
  •   Minimal blood loss and less need for transfusion
  •   Little scarring. Instead of a long chest scar, only a few tiny scars or a short, 2- to 5-inch scar remains.

Da Vinci Robotic system

Cost Robotic Heart surgery in India

The da Vinci robot is a highly sophisticated tool that enables the surgeon to perform the procedure with greater precision and control than is possible in traditional hands-on surgery. In robotically assisted surgeries, the chest cavity is accessed through dime-size "keyhole" incisions.

The surgeon sits in a console equipped with controls that direct robotic arms to perform the surgery. The da Vinci's robotic arms are essentially an extension of the surgeon's hands. A tiny camera attached to a robotic arm gives the surgeon a very detailed, three-dimensional view of the operating space inside the chest. The robotic arms are very agile, providing the surgeon a greater range of motion than is possible with hand-manipulated moves in standard procedures

Heart Surgery procedures where Robotic Heart Surgery can be used

Robot Assisted Mitral Valve Repair may be used to treat:

  •   Stenosis (narrowing) of the mitral valve
  •   Regurgitation (leakage) of the mitral valve

Robot Assisted Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG) may be used to treat:

  •   Blockages in the heart's arteries
  •   Severe chest pain ( angina ) that has not improved with medicines

Robot-assisted Atrial Septal defect repair may be used to treat a hole between the upper chambers of the heart that does not close properly during foetal development.

Robot-assisted Biventricular Pacemaker lead placement may be used to treat heart failure due to Atrial Fibrillation (irregular heart rhythm in the upper chambers of the heart)
