What Is Robotic Surgery?

Robotic surgery is an innovative surgical technique that combines advanced robotic systems with the expertise of skilled surgeons to perform complex procedures with enhanced precision and control. Also known as robot-assisted surgery, this cutting-edge technology has revolutionized the field of medicine, particularly in urology.

At the core of robotic surgery is the surgical robot, a sophisticated machine operated by a highly trained surgeon. The robot consists of multiple arms, each equipped with precise instruments and a high-definition camera. The surgeon controls these arms from a console in the operating room, allowing for real-time manipulation and visualization of the surgical site.

What Does Robotic Surgery Involve?

During a robotic surgery procedure, while you’re under anesthesia, small incisions are made to insert the robotic arms and camera into the patient’s body. The surgeon sits at the console and controls the movements of the robotic arms using a combination of hand movements and foot pedals. 

The camera provides a magnified, three-dimensional view of the surgical area, offering the surgeon a detailed and immersive visualization of the anatomy.

What Types of Robotic Surgery Are Available?

At Urology of Greater Atlanta, the surgeons offer several types of robotic surgery, including robotic prostatectomy, robotic sacrocolpopexy, robotic nephrectomy, and robotic pyeloplasty. 

Robotic Prostatectomy (radical and simple)

Robotic prostatectomy is a surgery used in the treatment of prostate cancer. Patients diagnosed with prostate cancer may need surgery to remove the cancerous cells or tumor, and a robot-assisted surgery allows for a more detailed view of the surgical site.

Smaller incisions and quicker recovery time are significant during this surgery because of the prostate’s location in your body.

Robotic Sacrocolpopexy

Robotic sacrocolpopexy is a surgery used to address vaginal and uterine prolapse.

During the procedure, your surgeon lifts your organs and inserts a mesh wall to support the pelvic muscles. 

Robotic Nephrectomy

During a nephrectomy, your surgeon removes part or all of your kidney. The procedure is typically used to treat kidney cancer or remove a benign tumor. Your surgeon can also use a robotic nephrectomy to harvest a donor’s kidney. 

Robotic Pyeloplasty

During pyeloplasty, your surgeon reconstructs the renal pelvis (hollow area) of your kidney. Your renal pelvis is the hollow area that drains urine into your ureters and your bladder. Trauma and infection can cause scarring, fluid retention, and other blockages that require surgical repair. 

What Are the Advantages of Robotic Surgery?

Your doctor can explain the benefits in more detail during your pre-op consultation. But, in general, robotic and minimally invasive surgeries provide many patient benefits, including:

  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Minimal pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Minimized scarring
  • Reduced risk of infection
  • Rapid recovery and return to regular activity

Robotic surgery is a minimally invasive surgical technique that uses a robotic arm to perform the surgery. Your surgeon controls the arm, which allows more precise movements and enhanced visualization of the procedure. Robotic surgery is minimally invasive and typically requires smaller incisions than traditional surgical options, making it increasingly popular among surgeons and patients alike. 

While you're under anesthesia, your surgeon controls a robotic arm to complete your surgery. They make a small incision in your body and insert a thin tube with a camera on its tip. The camera sends video from inside your body to a monitor. It allows your surgeon to have a magnified view of inside your body without having to make a large incision. Then, using the robotic arm, your surgeon uses specially designed surgical instruments to complete your surgery. 

Your doctor can explain the benefits in more detail during your pre-op consultation. But in general, robotic and minimally invasive surgeries provide patient benefits, including:


  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Minimal pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Minimized scarring
  • Reduced risk of infection
  • Rapid recovery and return to regular activity
