Popularizing Robotic Intervention In Uro- Oncology By Dr. Tarun Jindal

Dr. Tarun Jindal is an expert in robotic, laparoscopic, and open surgical procedures. His major area of interest is a minimally invasive surgery and has performed hundreds of robotic/ laparoscopic oncological and non- oncological procedures. He has performed more than two thousand endoscopic uro oncological procedures. He is the Robotic Urological Surgeon in Kolkata and the first surgeon in the world to have performed the robotic inguinal node dissection by the lateral approach.

About Robotic Surgery:

Robotic surgery is the latest and most advanced technology to perform complex and difficult surgeries with ease thereby translating into better clinical outcome. Robotic surgery enables doctors to perform complex surgeries with more precision, control, and flexibility than what is possible with convenient procedures. These are performed through tiny incisions, unlike open surgeries.

Prostate Cancer and Robotic Surgery

Prostate cancer is the second most common form of cancer affecting men. More than 70% of men diagnosed with prostate cancer each year are over the age of 65. If cancer has not spread outside the prostate gland, surgical removal of the prostate and surrounding tissues is the standard choice of treatment.

The main type of surgery for prostate cancer is a radical prostatectomy. Conventionally, radical prostatectomy was carried out using open surgery. However, with the advent of recent technologies radical prostatectomy is carried out using minimally invasive techniques such as laparoscopic and robotic prostate surgery.

Is robotic surgery better than open surgery?

Although robotic surgeries are far more advantageous than open surgeries, some cancers will still require open surgeries, and your treating is the best person to decide that. Various factors such as the type of cancer, stage of the tumour, size, location, and the patient’s overall conditions are considered before recommending surgery or any other treatment.

In some cases, robotic surgery may be a better option and, in some cases, open surgery could lead to better outcomes. If you want to know if robotic surgery is a better option for your condition, you can talk to the doctor who will let you know if that is possible.

Why is robotic surgery important?

Surgeons who make use of the robotic systems find it extremely beneficial during operations as it enhances precision, control, and flexibility along with enabling them to examine the site even better, as compared to traditional techniques.

If you have queries regarding any of the robotic surgery procedures, such as robotic prostatectomy or any other robotic procedure, you may refer to the Best Robotic Urologist in Kolkata and get all your doubts and queries resolved.
