Robotic Vascular Surgery


Working with vascular surgeons at the Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, Dr. (Prof.) Arvind Kumar is using the surgical robot for the abdominal portion of aortic vascular anastomosis. He uses da Vinci camera video of actual procedures, plus PowerPoints to help show his work. “…the robotic system actually makes a huge difference. Imagine doing this procedure laparoscopically, there would be no place available to change this. The beauty is that you can actually take the needle, hold the needle in which ever direction you like”, he explains as part of his thorough presentation. 18:11
