ROBOTIC SURGERY - THE ROBOTIC RENNAISANCE IN SURGICAL ONCOLOGY

Apollo Institutes of Robotic Surgery are pioneers in this niche field, and Robotic Surgery at Apollo Proton Cancer Centre is built on the same platform of excellence and expertise. We are committed to providing patients with an exceptional experience using cutting-edge treatment options.


Our state-of-the-art operating theatres are equipped with the ‘Da Vinci Surgical System’, the most advanced platform for minimally invasive surgery available today. The four-armed surgical robotic system is a breakthrough in surgical technology and is a crucial component of our integrated cancer care program. Robot-assisted surgery integrates advanced computer technology with the experience of skilled surgeons. This technology provides the surgeon with a 10x magnified, high definition, 3D-image of the body's intricate anatomy. The controls in the console allow the surgeon to manipulate special surgical instruments that are smaller, as well as more flexible and maneuverable than the human hand. The surgeon is thus in complete control of the surgical procedure. The robot helps replicate the surgeon’s hand movements while minimizing hand tremors. The surgery is thus conducted with enhanced precision, dexterity, and control even during the most complex procedures.

Robotics are a powerful option in cancer care

Robot-assisted surgery offers many unique advantages:


  • The da Vinci system enables surgeons to perform delicate procedures like prostate surgery while preserving the nerve fibers and blood vessels attached to the gland. This is because of the enhanced precision and control offered by the system.
  • The superior vision that the robotics field offers enables surgeons to clearly differentiate between tissue planes, and perform precise tumour removal.
  • The da Vinci system allows better cancer clearance, while still preserving the healthy tissue, by scaling the surgeon’s movements.
  • Robotic surgery can also benefit patients needing treatment for kidney, cervical, uterine and ovarian cancer.
  • Following a robot-assisted procedure, patients with colorectal cancers can benefit from having a quicker return to normal bowel functions and diet.
