It is considered a minimally invasive technique, meaning that it causes less “damage” than the usual surgical technique in which the incision is bigger. This results in a faster and less painful recovery. In addition, when using a high definition camera with several magnifications, the surgery can be performed more accurately which, in the hands of expert surgeons in this technique, means better end results from surgery, less bleeding and a lower rate of transfusions.What urological surgeries can be performed laparoscopically?
Practically almost all non endoscopic surgeries of prostate, bladder, kidney, ureter, and adrenal gland can be performed laparoscopically.What results does laparoscopy offer?
There is a widespread misconception in which the weight of the results is placed on technology, and this is a mistake. Laparoscopy is merely a tool; the most important and determining factor in the subsequent results is the skill of the surgeon, so laparoscopic surgery will be advantageous only in the hands of a surgeon skilled in the art, such as Dr. Rosino who has performed hundreds of surgeries with this technique and teaches at one of the most prestigious centers for training in laparoscopy in Europe.I’ve heard about the robot. What is it exactly?
The full name of the technique is “robot-assisted laparoscopy.” It is a type of laparoscopy, in which the surgeon rather than directly moving surgical instruments (scissors, forceps,…) manipulates the controls of a robot which is the one that moves the surgical instruments. Like all techniques it has its advantages and disadvantages compared to classical laparoscopy, although it has not clearly shown benefits for patients with of one type of approach versus another, possibly because the most important factor, as mentioned before, is the skill of the surgeon, not the technology being used.
