Laparoscopic surgery is a type of surgery performed to cure urologic issues without causing immense pain to the patient. Many traditional urologic surgical procedures require large incisions which entail longer hospital stay and recovery. Minimally invasive surgery, also known as laparoscopic or keyhole surgery is a procedure that uses a small telescope with built-in magnification mechanism and a variety of long, thin surgical instruments.

Minimally invasive surgery has been instrumental in operating many benign and malignant urologic problems. Besides, it has been applied to conditions affecting a variety of urologic organs (including kidney, adrenal gland, ureter, bladder, prostate, lymph nodes).

Recently, the use of robotic technology has been introduced in the field of laparoscopic urologic surgery. Robotic surgery has distinct advantages over conventional laparoscopic surgery:

  • Improved optical technology provides surgeons with not only a high definition, magnified view but also more specifically a 3D depth perception of the internal anatomy as compared to the 2D view offered by laparoscopic surgery.
  • Advancements in multi-joined robotic instruments improve the success rates of surgery.
  • Motion scaling technology allows for reduction in tremor and highly precise surgical dissection during robotic surgery.

Thus, to sum up, laparoscopic and robotic surgery has resulted in the following advantages:

  • Less pain and scarring
  • Minimal blood loss
  • Fewer blood transfusions
  • Lesser risk of infections
  • Shorter hospital stay
