These robotics surgeries are often very complex because a male urethra, with it’s minute opening, doesn’t provide much space. While doing the laparoscopic surgeries, an operative camera allows the doctor to take video and to snap pictures, both helpful for location when doing operations on these tiny anatomical structures.
When a surgeon utilizes a robot to assist surgeries, the surgeon sits at the machine’s console off field. Special laparoscopic instruments are in the patient’s body, and the robotic arms make the movements controlled by the surgeon operating/programming the machine. This is similar to playing video games, but much more complicated. The robot allows the surgeon to twist the laparoscopic instruments in any direction, even full wrist-circles, which surgeon’s can’t do alone.
