Management of Intra-Operative Complications: the Robotic Way


“A number of times the question is asked: In robotic surgery, complications happen. What would you do?” says Dr Anant Kumar, Chairman of Uro-Oncology, Robotic & Kidney Transplantation Max Hospital, Saket, New Delhi & Max Hospital, Vaishal. He was presenting to the Robotic Surgeons Council of India, a group of over 200 surgeons gathered in Goa, November 2017.

Dr. Kumar offered examples from his experience as a mentor & surgeon: an accidental artery injury; vas deferens injury; a “button holing” bladder injury; plus other examples. He uses good robotic surgery video footage and descriptions to show how to fix problems which sometimes come up. “As your experience grows, most of your complications can be managed robotically,” he says.
