Robot-assisted Surgery in Urology
In the city's first, Robot-Assisted Laparoscopic Surgery Centre in Ruby Hall Clinic, Pune where Precision meets perfection with minimal blood loss and speedy recovery. In a first of its kind centre in the city, Rupa Rahul Bajaj Robotic Centre for excellence has grown tremendously in the last couple of months. With this feat, Ruby Hall Clinic is the only hospital in Pune, to provide such internationally proven robot-assisted technology in the city, where we are doing complex surgery such as for prostate cancer, bladder cancer, penile cancer, kidney cancer, adrenal cancer, staghorn calculus, pediatric congenital urology reconstructive problems, using da Vinci Si Surgical Platform with excellent results. The patient normally goes home on 2nd or 3rd day after such complex surgery as there is no major blood loss, no big scars, minimal pain. All this leads to rapid recovery, less hospital stay, ready to be discharged on the above mentioned days and early return to normal routine and office work.
In last decade or so, robotic surgery has grown globally with more than 5000 robotic centres across the world and more than 55 centres in India. However, in India cost is considered to be the main factor in the adoption of any new technology. Robot-assisted surgery is extremely cost-effective as it helps in early return to routine work. Many insurance companies have started giving interest-free loans for robot-assisted cases so that this technology is within the reach of common man without any financial constraints.
