Robotic Hernia Surgery


“This is a relatively new concept.” says Dr. (Prof.) Arun Prasad, Senior Bariatric Surgeon & Chief of Obesity and Metabolic Surgery Center, Dept. of Minimal Access Surgery, Apollo Hospital, New Delhi, as he addresses the Robotic Surgeons Council of India. “With the dissection, there is a slight advantage over laparoscopic,” he claims. “The articulation of the instruments is of use.”

He shows different examples of robotic surgery video, describing his technique and challenges which the robotic system helps overcome, especially when compared with laparoscopic surgery for ventral hernia repair.
