KIMS ROBOTIC UROLOGY CENTER
Dr.M.GOPICHAND Centre for Robotic Surgery is an initiative of Dr.M.Gopichand.It is the firstsuper specialty hospital in telangana dedicated to Urology.We serve our patients for more than 10 years.We use daVinciSi Surgical Instruments for Robotic Surgeries in Urology.There are many advantages of Robotic Surgeries over the conventional surgeries.Such instruments provide high definition 3D Vision and 360 degree angular movement to surgeons which help them in greater accuracy.Because of the robotics the patient observes less pain,less scarring and less blood loss which ultimately results in quicker recovery and lesser post-operative complexities.This type of surgery is now preferred for the complex urological surgeries.such RadicalProstatectomy,Nephrectomy,Cystectomy and Pediatric Surgeries.
He has more than 10 of experience in the field of Urology.He is an expert specialized in Robotic Surgeries.He is a consultant at KIMS HOSPITAL Dr.M.Gopichand is current Executive Council For Both Us AP & TS of urology Society and Fellow of SocietyInternational Urology (SIU).
Prostate gland is a central part of the male reproductive system located just beneath the bladder.Prostate cancer is one of the most common and treatable cancer.Male hormones cause the prostate gland to grow with age.If male hormone levels are low,the prostate gland will not grow to full size.For old men,the part of the prostate around the urethra often persists in growing.This causes BPH (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia), resulting in urination problems.
This disease is rare for men below 50 years.The risk of developing prostate cancer increases later and by the time a man crosses 80,more than 50% of men will have some cancerous growth,which may or may not require medical treatment.However there are certain factors associated,which increases the risk of developing prostate cancer.
Early prostate cancer usually causes no symptoms and is found by a PSA (Prostate-Specific Antigen) test and DRE (Digital Rectal Exam).Some advanced prostate cancers can slow or weaken your urinary stream or make you need to urinate more often.Non-cancerous diseases of the prostate,such as BPH (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia) often cause these symptoms.
If the prostate cancer is advanced,you might also develop hematuria (blood in your urine) or impotence (difficulty having an erection).Pain in your pelvic bone,spine,hips or ribs is also possible,as advanced prostate cancer commonly spreads to the bones.Other diseases,however,can also cause these same symptoms.
The procedure is begun by inflating the abdomen with carbon dioxide gas in order to provide the surgeon with "working room".Next, six small incisions,1/4 to 1/2 inch in length,are made in the abdomen and plastic or metal ports are installed to keep the incisions open.Seated at the da Vinci System console nearby and using both the laparoscopic surgical instruments and a pencil-sized video camera,the surgeon directs the da Vinci's robotic arms to dissect the prostate gland and adjacent tissue.The video camera's 12X magnification and 3D view enable the surgeon to identify the many delicate nerves,tiny blood vessels,and other structures surrounding the prostate gland.Once the procedure is completed and the prostate is removed,the patient awakens,is ambulating later that day and typically is discharged within 24 hours.
Robotic prostatectomy,which has been shown to be as effective as conventional procedures in treating localized prostate cancer,offers these advantages:
The da Vinci Surgical System used at USMD Hospital for robotic prostatectomy extends the surgeon's capabilities to provide these significant benefits:
At kidney urology andrology clinics and KIMS HOSPITAL we use state-of-the-art technology to provide our patient ultra-modern treatment.We offer several potential benefits to patients facing kidney surgery, including:
At this center,kidney cancer surgery is performed using the da Vinci Surgical System,a state-of-the-art surgical platform.By overcoming the limits of both traditional open and laparoscopic surgery,at this center we are trying change the experience of surgery for people around the world.
A robot surgical system provides high definition view to surgeon,urologist or an oncologist and provides better view for surgery,distinguishes the vital muscles and delicate nerve tissues surrounding the operative area,providing the opportunity to preserve them.With conventional laparoscopic instruments 360 degree movement is not possible,with advance robot surgical system patient gets benefits such as:
At our centre we have done pediatric robotic procedures in children as young as 2 years of age.
The aim of any minimally invasive surgery is to offer comparable outcomes to open surgery with added benefit of cosmesis.Robotic assisted laparoscopic surgery offers this benefit,even in pediatric population.
The well-known advantages of robotic surgery are motion scaling,absence of physiological tremors,3D and high definition vision.
Robotic pediatric surgery befits the dictum What one sees better,it is done better. This holds true particularly in pediatric population wherein majority of surgeries require precise and accurate suturing.
The varieties of pediatric robotic procedures that have taken place include pyeloplasties,ureteric re-implantation,and augmentation cystoplasties.All these require accurate suturing.Robot helps exactly in this aspect.
