Robotic Surgery (da Vinci Si)

Here you can find information to help you better understand your options if you are considering robotic surgery for colorectal diseases!

Below is the basic information of Robotic Surgery (da Vinci Si), you can click on the topic to read more.

What is Robotic Surgery?

Health Knowledge

Robotic surgery is a type of minimally invasive surgery. "Minimally invasive" means that instead of operating on patients through large incisions, we use miniaturized surgical instruments that fit through a series of quarter-inch incisions. When performing surgery with the da Vinci Si—the world’s most advanced surgical robot—these miniaturized instruments are mounted on three separate robotic arms, allowing the surgeon maximum range of motion and precision. The da Vinci’s fourth arm contains a magnified high-definition 3-D camera that guides the surgeon during the procedure.

The surgeon controls these instruments and the camera from a console located in the operating room. Placing his fingers into the master controls, he is able to operate all four arms of the da Vinci simultaneously while looking through a stereoscopic high-definition monitor that literally places him inside the patient, giving him a better, more detailed 3-D view of the operating site than the human eye can provide. Every movement he makes with the master controls is replicated precisely by the robot. When necessary, the surgeon can even change the scale of the robot’s movements: If he selects a three-to-one scale, the tip of the robot’s arm will move just one inch for every three inches the surgeon’s hand moves. And because of the console’s design, the surgeon’s eyes and hands are always perfectly aligned with his view of the surgical site, minimizing surgeon fatigue.

How the da Vinci Si Works?

Health Knowledge

The da Vinci Si has two separate but connected sections:

A: The tower, which is positioned directly over the patient during surgery, contains the robot’s four arms—three that can hold a multitude of different surgical instruments, and a fourth that holds the system’s 3-D cameras. These arms are controlled by a computer that exactly replicates the movements of the operating surgeon.

B: The console is where the surgeon sits and operates the robot’s controls while looking into a stereoscopic monitor that provides a magnified, high definition 3-D view of the surgical site. The surgeon manipulates the robot’s four arms by maneuvering two master controls that provide fingertip precision of movement.

The surgeon also operates a footswitch that provides additional options, such as the ability to switch between two different energy sources. Touchpads allow the surgeon to easily adjust video, audio and system settings, while the ergonomic console and the alignment of the controls and monitor are designed to keep the surgeon in a relaxed, focused position at all times.

Finally, additional video screens link in the rest of the surgical team by providing a two-dimensional view of what the surgeon is looking at through the da Vinci’s stereoptic monitor.

Why da Vinci Surgery?

Health Knowledge

If you have been diagnosed a colorectal condition, including: colon cancer, rectal cancer, diverticulitis, and inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease), your doctor may recommend surgery. Surgery to remove all or part of the colon is known as a colectomy. Rectal cancer surgery is known as a low anterior resection.

da Vinci Colectomy - As a result of da Vinci technology, da Vinci Colectomy offers the following potential benefits:

  • Precise removal of cancerous tissue
  • Low blood loss
  • Quick return of bowel function
  • Quick return to a normal diet
  • Low rate of complications
  • Low conversion rate to open surgery
  • Short hospital stay
  • Better cosmetic result compared to open surgery

da Vinci Low Anterior Resection - As a result of da Vinci technology, da Vinci Low Anterior Resection offers precise removal of cancerous tissue as well as the following potential benefits when compared to open surgery:

  • Less blood loss
  • Less pain
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Quicker return of bowel function
  • Quicker return to a normal diet
  • Faster recovery
  • Better cosmetic result

When compared to traditional laparoscopy, da Vinci Low Anterior Resection offers the following potential benefits:

  • Lower conversion rate to open surgery
  • Fewer major complications
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Quicker return to a normal diet
  • Quicker return of urinary function
  • Quicker return of sexual function

Risks & Considerations

Health Knowledge

Potential risks of any colectomy or low anterior resection procedure include:

  • Anastomotic leak (intestinal fluid leak)
  • Ileus (bowel blockage)
  • Pulmonary embolism (blocked lung artery)
  • Abscess
  • Urinary problems

  • This information should not be used as a substitute to consultation from a physician. Always talk with your doctor about diagnosis and treatment information.
  • The service center is Bangkok-Phuket Colorectal Disease Institute of Bangkok Hospital Phuket.
