Fewer blood transfusion, reduced risk, and infection, Robotics surgeries gaining acceptance among patients, surgeons in India shorter stay in hospital.

Robotics-assisted surgeries (Robotics surgeries gaining acceptance among patients, ) seem to be gaining some acceptance among surgeons & patients everywhere in India.

“The robotics-assisted surgeries to assist doctors to perform complex operations efficiently,assistance reduces the size of surgical incisions, minimizes blood loss, shortens patient’s post-procedure recovery time and it also reduces cuts and pain.” claim by surgical robotics systems manufacturers & surgeons who conduct operations on these machines.

In addition, it facilitates better visualization (of the body part under surgery), enhanced dexterity, and greater precision, thereby delivers better clinical outcomes especially for patients who are undergoing procedures for oncology, thyroid, gynecologic cancers [ vaginal and vulvar, cervical, uterine, ovarian ] and urology, according to medical professionals.

Many Advantages of RAS

Dr. Preetha Reddy, Executive Vice Chairperson, of Apollo Hospitals, said, “The advantages of this technologies always pushes the boundaries of medicine and drugs an interesting innovation of this era has certainly been (RAS) Robotics-assisted surgeries.”

“With Robotics assistance surgeries are possible with fewer blood transfusion, reduced risk of wound infection, and shorter stay in the hospital,” Dr. Preetha Reddy said.

Training Programs

Responding to the growing awareness about robotics-assisted surgeries, many tech-savvy surgeons within the country are now within the process of learning and adopting this technology.

Intuitive Surgical, designer, and manufacturer of Da Vinci robotics surgical systems recently entered into a collaboration with AIIMS Delhi to launch robotics onboarding training (ROPE) to equip young surgeons to move the robotics way.

“This will enable young surgeons and trainees to realize exposure to cutting-edge technologies of the future. We ran a pilot program of ROPE within the oncology division of ALL India Institute Of Medical science (AIIMS) and now supported surgical students’ feedback we getting to expand it to other specialties and institutions.” Dr. S.V.S. Deo Professor and Head, Department of Surgical Oncology, AIIMS said.

Increase in Deployments

RAS companies like Intuitive Surgical and Medtronic are receiving positive feedback from surgeons regarding the usage of robotics technology. Intuitive Surgical, which has 73 RAS installations in various hospitals in India, reported a 25% to 30% year-on-year growth in deployments.


“We are now scaling our (RAS) introductory program within the country in partnership with several medical institutions,” said Mandeep Singh Kumar, VP, and GM at Intuitive India.

Madan Krishnan, Vice President & Managing Director, Medtronic India, that creates robotics guidance platforms, said, “Robotics-assisted surgeries (RAS) is an extension of the doctor. It helps surgeons visualize the surgery in advance and map the progress in real-time. This helps them align their surgical plans accurately while doing spinal or cranial procedures.”

Seeing the growing scope of robotics in surgeries, The Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI), has already issued guidelines to insurance firms to include Robotics-assisted surgeries (RAS) in their health coverage plans. As of now, the cost of robotics surgeries will remain equivalent to that of traditional surgeries, say healthcare providers.
