Robotic Surgeries

Robotic surgery has revolutionised the way surgeons perform complex surgeries, enabling them to operate with greater precision, accuracy and control than ever.

The da Vinci Robotic Surgical System” is a computer-based surgical robot that mimics the operating surgeon’s hand and wrist movements, enabling them to perform minimally invasive procedures through the tiniest of incisions. The da Vinci provides the operating Surgeon easy access to areas, which are difficult to reach otherwise, along with magnified view, enhanced precision and improved control. This state-of-the-art technology can be used to treat several complex conditions, such as different types of colorectal cancer, urological and gynaecological cancer.

Surgeons conducting robotically assisted surgery procedures require specialised training to operate the robot. At American Hospital Dubai, we have American board-certified robotic surgeons with vast experience performing these kinds of complex surgeries and we take pride to be the first in the UAE to install the da Vinci Xi Robotic System in a dedicated operating room.

Benefits of Robotic Surgery:

Compared with conventional open surgery methods, the benefits of using a robotic technology to perform a surgery include:

  • A shorter hospital stay
  • Minimal blood loss
  • Greater precision and accuracy to pinpoint key areas to be treated. This spares the surrounding tissues and cells from injury or bleeding
  • Little or no discomfort or unpleasant feeling after surgery
  • Minimal to no risk of complications, such as infections
  • Smaller incisions lead to smaller scars
  • Faster recovery time
  • Allows patients to resume their everyday activities, school or work, quickly and safely.

As for Surgeons, the robotic technology helps them to:

  • Control instruments whilst sitting at the console
  • Be up close with the organs, tissues or cells requiring diagnosis or treatment through 3D vision system
  • Enhance dexterity as the robot can move instruments in different directions, making surgery easier.

What We Do:

Our team of highly trained and knowledgeable Surgeons have direct access to the robotic technology, enabling them to perform a range of complex procedures, such as:

  • Colorectal surgery
  • Different types of abdominal wall hernias
  • Gallbladder and biliary track surgeries
  • Stomach and small intestine surgeries
  • Hysterectomy, to treat benign and cancerous conditions of the uterus
  • Myomectomy, or removal of  uterine fibroids
  • Prostatectomy, for  prostate cancer
  • Cystectomy, involving the removal of urinary bladder
  • Removal of kidney(s), to treat or manage kidney cancer

Robotic-assisted surgeries at American Hospital Dubai are performed in dedicated operating rooms employing state-of-the-art “da Vinci Surgical Systems”. Please be noted that during any procedure, the robot is used as a tool only giving a magnified view of key anatomical landmarks; it is the Surgeon who performs and concludes an operation.
