At the CK Birla Hospital, we aim to consistently deliver the best patient care by utilising the latest innovations in healthcare. We offer expert and comprehensive surgical diagnosis for all ailments, disorders and tumours (benign and malefic). Assisting our award-winning multi-disciplinary teams is the latest innovation in surgery called Robot-assisted surgery.
Robot-assisted surgery helps us take surgical procedures to the next level of finesse, giving patients the best possible treatment to lead a good quality of life. This not only helps our patients experience minimal postoperative pain, but also protects them from some unnecessary complications associated with traditional surgery.
With a reduced duration of hospital stay, patients get the chance to resume their normal activities much faster. Our commitment to delivering the highest standards of clinical excellence reflects in the combination of robotic systems with specialised surgical skills to ensure each patient benefits in the long run.
Why is Robotic Surgery a Preferred Technique?
- Minimally invasive procedure for faster healing.
Robotic surgical systems are effectively being used in multiple disciplines including orthopaedics, urology, gynaecology, bariatrics and oncology, helping surgeons produce exceptionally improved clinical outcomes. In time it looks to overtake the widely used approach of laparoscopy into becoming the preferred surgical approach.
Procedures Performed Using Robotic Systems
Robotic Gynaecologic SurgeryThe minimally invasive approach allows a narrow, lighted scope and miniature instruments to reach difficult areas and perform precision based surgery with the help of a robotic assisted system.
Robotic Oncology SurgeryDifferent streaks of cancer surgeries can be performed with robotic assistance. This helps perform surgery in the trickiest corners of the body. So whether it is a colectomy or prostatectomy or even nephrectomy, if caught in the early stages, cancer can be successfully eliminated.
Robotic Head & Neck SurgeryPatients who suffer from deterioration in speech, swallowing and facial or neck scars, undergo Trans-Oral Robotic Surgeries (TORS). Cancer found in tonsils, tongue, thyroid and neck can be successfully removed even from difficult to reach areas using precision led robotic arms.
Robotic GI SurgeryGastrointestinal cancers and tumours are highly delicate. So managing negative space left post surgery, and infections or blood loss are vital aspects to be explored. Minimally invasive approach of robotic surgery ensures faster recovery, minimal scarring, and enhanced operative precision for the best surgical outcomes.
Robotic Orthopaedic SurgeryRobotic systems not only provide thorough AI based imaging but also eliminate the chances of overlooked errors and ensure that complex disorders can be effectively treated.
Robotic Urology SurgeryRobotic surgeries provide an easier, safer and more desirable treatment path. The precision and AI support of robotic technology helps removal of lymph nodes with minimised negative space in case of testicular and penile cancer.
Robotic Bariatric SurgeryRobotic Sleeve Gastrectomy is a robot assisted bariatric surgery which helps reduce up to 75% of excess body weight. The benefit lies in the minimally invasive precision provided by robotic technology which helps patients recover faster, without unnecessary complications.
Advantages of Robotic Surgery
- Lower Morbidity: Minimal muscle cuts, faster recovery time, higher precision, less bleeding than manual surgeries.
- Quicker Rehab: Physiotherapy required after robotic surgeries is just for 10 – 15 days compared to 45 – 60 days in case of traditional surgery.
- Faster Recovery: 50% faster recovery period compared to manual surgery with less surgical trauma.
- Minimal Revision Rate: Manual surgeries often lead to revision surgeries after a period of time. Chances of relapse of the condition requiring a re-surgery are very low in case of robotic surgeries.
- Reduced scarring: Much smaller cuts compared to traditional approach therefore no long lasting scars or chances of infections.

FAQs On Robotic Surgery
Robotic surgery, also known as robot-assisted surgery, is an advanced surgical technique where a robotic system assists surgeons in performing procedures with precision and control. It involves the use of robotic arms equipped with specialized surgical instruments and a high-resolution camera.
Robotic surgery is designed to enhance the surgeon’s capabilities, offering improved dexterity, visualization, and the ability to perform minimally invasive procedures through smaller incisions.
Robotic surgery provides several benefits to patients and contributes to improved surgical outcomes. Its key advantages are:
- Precision and accuracy in performing critical surgical procedures.
- Minimally invasive techniques using smaller incisions.
- Reduced pain & faster recovery.
- Lower risk of complications or infections.
- Significantly shorter hospital stay & recovery time.
- Minimal blood loss due to cauterization.
The entire procedure is performed by a human using a robotic arm. This means the entire surgery is within the surgeon’s control. Sitting at a console in the operation theatre, the surgeon directs the robotic arms to carry out the procedure. A video camera records the surgery in real-time, providing the surgeon with an enhanced view of the operating area.
In India, Robotic Surgeries are covered under advanced surgical procedures. The same must be recommended by the surgeon to be eligible for cover under health insurance. The limit on claim amount will differ from policy to policy. For more clarity, reach out to your health insurance provider while planning robotic surgery.
The biggest USP of robotic surgery for patients is faster recovery. The recovery is not painful at all. Patients can return to daily activities sooner since there are minimal chances of surgical complications and no requirement for elaborate dressing of scars.
