Critical Steps to Perform a Robotic Hysterectomy for Benign Condition


“It’s only the matter of the difference of the technique,” says Dr. Rama Joshi, Director, Gynae Oncology at the Fortis Memorial Research Institute in Gurgaon. She tells the Robotic Surgeons Council of India about the contrasts between open surgery and robotic surgery. Her case is a multiple fibroid uterus with endometrial hyperplasia in a treated case of breast cancer.

She describes the patient’s symptoms and diagnosis, which led to Dr. Joshi performing a robotic hysterectomy and BSO. We see her remove an adhesion from a previous caeserian section, and also learn about the many specific points surgeons must be prepared for during the procedure. Dr. Joshi shares her cautions, robotic tool choices and anatomical highlights, as we view all of her steps..
