What is Robotic Heart Surgery ?
Robotic surgery, also known as robot-assisted surgery, is a type of surgery in which surgeons use a computerised robotic arm with miniature equipment attached to execute difficult procedures. Smaller incisions and precise motion control result from the minimally invasive approach, which improves patient outcomes.
A sternotomy, or cutting through the breastbone and opening the ribs, is the standard procedure for open cardiac surgery. This invasive procedure causes severe trauma, a longer recovery time, and a higher chance of major complications.
Robotic surgery allows for minimally invasive surgery without the need to open the chest. Instead, the surgical system's robotic arms operate through a series of small incisions called ports down the side of the chest. During the surgery, the surgeon has complete control over his activities and is able to do it with better precision.
There are numerous fundamental qualities of a robotic surgical system that make it perfect for minimally invasive surgery. A surgeon console, an equipment trolley, and a visioning platform are included.
From the console, the surgeon can operate these equipment as well as the camera. The surgeon can operate all arms of the surgical system simultaneously by inserting his fingers into the master controls. The high-definition 3D camera delivers a clearer, more detailed 12-times magnified 3-D picture of the operative site. Sensors register the surgeon's finger and wrist movements, which are then translated into action in the robotic arms with high precision.
In many aspects, robotic surgery is better to both traditional open surgery and endoscopic surgery. The following are some of the procedure's technical advantages:
The approach allows for a three-dimensional and magnified view of the surgical site, allowing for a better understanding of the operative field's depth.
The robotic arms' actions are more accurate and delicate.
Tremor-free movements, ambidexterity, and freedom from the fulcrum effect associated with the use of long-shafted endoscopic instruments are all advantages of robotic surgery.
The surgeon can operate within a tiny area such as the left atrium of the heart using the robotic system's multi-jointed endo-wrist, which are wrist-like articulating devices.
The most modern robotic systems include an additional arm that can be used for left atrial retraction or to help with coronary anastomosis.
Because robot-assisted cardiac surgery is done through keyhole incisions, it has the following advantages in terms of Patient Outcomes:
Minimal invasion surgery results in less trauma
Because the incisions are tiny, they heal faster and leave less scarring
Blood loss is reduced
Postoperative pain is reduced
Recovery time is reduced
Infection risk is reduced
Hospital stays are shorter
Return to usual exercise and work more quickly
When is Robotic Heart Surgery required?
Not everyone is a candidate for robotic heart surgery. Your doctor and treatment team will work with you to see if it's a viable choice for you.
Your doctor will likely evaluate your medical history and run tests to learn more about your heart health in order to assess whether minimally invasive heart surgery is the best option for you.
How is Robotic Heart Surgery done?
For the procedure, you will be put under general anesthesia and have a breathing tube. On the side of your chest, a surgeon will make a series of keyhole-sized incisions. The apertures between your ribs will be aligned with these incisions. You may need to be placed on a heart-lung machine.
Several precision-guided robotic arms will be inserted into these incisions depending on the surgery being performed. These robotic arms hold and handle small tools that are used to perform tasks on the heart or adjacent arteries.
Another incision will be used to introduce a tiny video camera that will provide a magnified, three-dimensional view of the surgical site.
From a console in the operating room, the surgeon will control the robotic arms and camera. The surgeon will then remove the equipment and close the incisions after they are finished.
What is the Recovery after Robotic Heart Surgery like?
After the surgery, you will be transferred to a recovery area where you will be monitored. Following that, you should expect a relatively brief hospital stay, usually half as long as with traditional open-heart surgery. When your pain is under control, you can keep liquids down without nausea or vomiting, and your lab values are close to normal or to your baseline before the treatment, your healthcare professional will usually discharge you.
On top of that, you can expect minimal scarring on your chest. Your chest may be scarred for up to ten inches after open-heart surgery. Only a few little scars on the side of your chest remain after robotic cardiac surgery.
You may also be able to resume normal activities sooner than following open-heart surgery. After a few weeks, most people are able to resume their typical activities. Your healthcare provider will make specific activity recommendations.
What Results Can I Expect from Robotic Heart Surgery ?
The patient's features, such as the existence of co-morbidities, age, and overall systemic state, have a significant impact on the surgery's result. One of the most significant advantages of robotic cardiac surgery is that it carries fewer risks than open-heart surgery, resulting in better outcomes and success.

My dad was advised cardiac bypass surgery in CA, USA, but because of being uninsured, such high costs of cardiac surgery in the US, we were really not able to afford it. IndiCure has actually helped in saving my dad's life and we are really grateful for the same. I am falling short of words, to express my gratitude to the surgeon who was very helpful and courteous. Will recommend IndiCure to everyone!
John Smith ( California, United States of America )
Procedure : CABG surgery
My son 4 years old was born with a heart defect which the doctors said needed a highly specialized surgery. Our cardiologist highly spoke of Indian surgeons and suggested us to go to India and in hindsight now I realize how right he was! My son was successfully operated and I must thank Indicure for the excellent arrangements they made.
Patricia Munene ( Ethiopia )
Procedure : ToF surgery
I would like to thank IndiCure for all they have done for my mother and me. Without IndiCure our stay would have been very difficult. They made our journey to India very pleasant and were always very attentive to our needs. I would recommend IndiCure to anybody wanting to come to India for medical treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions
If you have any of the following pre-existing conditions, you may not be a good candidate: Aneurysm, cardiac valve disease, or blood illness or another organ, such as the lungs or kidneys, is severely afflicted.
Robotic cardiac surgery offers lower risks than open-heart surgery, which is one of its key advantages. To open your chest, the surgeon does not need to cut through your breastbone. Many of the risks associated with open-heart surgery are eliminated.
3D imaging, a tremor filter, and articulated instruments are all features of robotic systems. Robotic surgery is preferable to traditional laparoscopic surgery with this modern technology due to significant increases in visualization and manipulation during the surgery.

Both of us were very pleased with the professional care provided to us from the first email to enquiry to the moment we stepped foot in India. We have never received such wonderful hospitality and always attending to our needs. We would both certainly recommend Indicure for any treatments and/or surgeries. We have been utterly amazed at what India has to offer and will definitely visit again.

Thank you IniCure Health Team for all the support you provided my father. You deserve 6 stars for customer service. Your team was instrumental in selling up my Dad with Dr. Babu and other healthcare team. Your Professionalism is exceptional. You responded to my all concerns within 24 hours; you reassured me everything would be okay when I needed it the most; you showed compassion that I have never seen before. Dr. Babu successfully operated my Dad and we are so grateful for that.
Dr. Ruchika in India delivered efficient and professional service from the outset, matching up my weight and health concerns with the most amazing surgeon at the Apollo Spectra hospital in New Delhi, who made good all the promises that had been made, and MORE. All arrangements were executed seamlessly. Very glad I found them and will certainly be using them again, should the need arise.

The IndiCure folks (Jagruti) hooked me up with THE BEST doctors for my heart issues. Period. The Physicians were thorough, professional, fast, proficient and affordable. Dealing with Indicure was super easy, super fast and a very pleasant experience. I HIGHLY recommend this process for those with no insurance or those who cannot afford the 20% co-pay for expensive procedures. Check the cost against prices in the USA folks.
