Da Vinci procedure: pros and cons
Advantages of Da Vinci operation:
80-92% of robotic operations go without complications. For comparison, open intervention - less than 70%.
- no large scars
With the help of Da Vinci, a surgeon operates through the incisions up to 2 cm.
The Da Vinci surgery system processes the physician's manipulations and transforms them into the smooth movements of the robot, eliminating the effect of the "trembling hand".
- low blood loss
During the intervention, a doctor does not damage the large vessels, so a patient loses no more than 200 ml of blood. In case of traditional surgery, it is about 1,200 ml.
- minimal pain
A doctor operates through small incisions that reduces postoperative pain.
- quick recovery
The rehabilitation period takes 3-5 days. After open surgery, a patient recovers for 2 weeks.
Disadvantages of robotic intervention:
- Da Vinci robotic system cannot remove large tumors
- there are cases when Da Vinci damages healthy tissues
- the cost of robotic surgery vs. traditional surgery. Some patients choose traditional intervention because of the Da Vinci procedure high cost.
Preparation for the Da Vinci robotic surgery
Preparation for Da Vinci robotic-assisted surgery depends on the diagnosis. Often it includes:
- consultation with a surgeon
- urine and blood tests
- consultation with an anesthesiologist.
Da Vinci procedure process
Da Vinci medical robot consists of two blocks:
- the first block is operational. A surgeon controls the movements of the robot and directs the camera, which transmits the image with 20-times zooming.
- the second block is a robot-manipulator. It has 4 hands: the first one holds the camera, the second and third perform surgical procedures, the fourth has a function of an assistant.
- A doctor inserts the robot tools through several incisions up to 2 cm and fills the operated area with a special gas. It provides good visibility of the organs and allows to stop bleeding immediately.
Da Vinci operation takes 2-3 hours.
Patients are hospitalized after the surgery for 3-7 days. The Da Vinci robotic surgery cost is affected by the duration of the hospital stay.
If necessary, a doctor prescribes exercises under control of a physiotherapist to recover functions of the operated organ.
Risks and complications
9 in 10 Da Vinci procedures go without complications. It is 20% higher than after open intervention and laparoscopy.
