Robotic-Assisted Paediatric Surgery involves the use of the latest generation of the Da Vinci Operating Robot for carrying out complex procedures in small children.
Surgery in children is much different and technically far more challenging as compared to adults due the following two reasons. The confined space available for operating due to the small size of the children and also the fact that most surgeries in children involve complex reconstruction of vital organs.
Minimal Access surgery in children is a challenging field in itself and having achieved a level of competence comparable to international standards, Department of Paediatric Surgery and Paediatric Urology now offers Robotic Surgery in children.
The utilization of a Robot ensures better maneuverability and much more accurate reconstruction in children and is decidedly superior to conventional minimal access surgery.
