Robot-assisted Kidney Transplantation
(Robotic Kidney Transplant)
One of the most important advantages of robotic surgery is that the surgeon’s visual quality during the operation is much better. The camera used in laparoscopic kidney transplantation methods only provides a two-dimensional image.
The cameras used in robotic kidney transplantation are Full-HD cameras that transmit separate images to each eye. In this way, a three-dimensional image is obtained. In addition, these cameras can magnify 15 times. Thus, the operation is performed under a much more comfortable vision. After the kidney transplant surgery performed with robotics, the patient recovers in a shorter time and can return to his daily life.
Kidney transplantation with robot requires high surgical experience and advanced technology. Robotic kidney transplant surgery has great advantages in terms of both the doctor performing the surgery and the transplanted patient.
Thanks to robotic surgery, it is possible to provide an advantageous result in people who donate their kidneys to their relatives, which will be safer, less painful and post-operative hernia and infection problems will occur at a lower rate. Thanks to the Da Vinci Robotic surgery system, both the image and the movement ability of the instruments performed in the abdomen become distinctly advantageous compared to the other technique that perform under the camera.
What’s da Vinci Surgery?
Da Vinci Robotic Surgery System N.A.S.A. It was built by astronauts in space to operate remotely. It consists of a surgeon’s console part where the surgeon performs the surgery while seated, a patient console part containing the robotic arms that are placed next to the patient on the operating table and prepared and brought to the field under sterile conditions, and a camera system tower that provides the advanced imaging system. In the da Vinci System, the surgeon performs difficult and sensitive surgeries by activating the other arms of the robot, which can move like his hand, accompanied by a three-dimensional image.
Removing the kidney to be transplanted by surgery is provided without damaging the tissues.
EMERGENCY RESPONSE CHANCE AND FASTER INTERVENTION
A 6-8 cm long incision should be made in order to take the kidney, which is released during the kidney transplant donor’s surgery, out of the abdomen. In order to increase the safety in retroperitoneoscopic surgery technique, it is possible to perform a more controlled surgery by making this incision at the beginning of the operation, where it will be removed the kidney, and placing the hand inside the abdomen. Thanks to the fact that one hand is inside, it has both the advantage of feeling and the chance to intervene immediately in case of an emergency. In this way, it is possible to take the kidney to be transplanted in a controlled and safe manner from the donor with small surgical incisions.
With the Da Vinci Robotic system, it is easier to sew thanks to the movements that are similar to hand movements. In this way, it is possible to safely suture the kidney’s veins into the recipient’s veins. In appropriate cases, kidney transplant surgery with the Da Vinci robot system can be performed under a robotic camera with small incisions.
Kidney transplantation is the most effective treatment known today for chronic kidney failure, which is caused by the permanent loss of kidney function. Patients with chronic renal failure can return to their lives as healthy individuals in a short time with a successful transplantation and postoperative follow-up process. Thanks to the developing technology, the post-operative life comfort of the patients increases.
The successful use of robotic surgery in organ transplantation, as well as making the surgery more comfortable and safe for the doctor, faster recovery for the patient, a quick return to social life, and less cosmetic loss (small incision scars and sutures) due to the minimally invasive surgery.
