Robotic Surgery Centers

Advanced technologies at the Robotic Surgery Centers, specifically the da Vinci Surgical System, is used by highly experienced and specialized teams.  This system allows the surgeon to carry out surgical operations with a minimal incision, while using its precise 3D imaging and advanced technological movement capabilities.  Areas where this is applied are:


Robotic Surgery for Cardiovascular Disease


Surgeries such as mitral valve prolapse, coronary by-pass (notably changing the veins at the frontal surface), rhythm disorders, right valve repair, orifice repair, and atrium related procedures.


Robotic Surgery for General Surgery


  • Robotic Colorectal Surgery: the da Vinci is used in surgical treatment of many colorectal diseases including colorectal cancers (colon and rectum), diverticula, and inflammatory bowel diseases.  The use of this technology ensures that the nerves adjacent to the surgery area are protected, especially within rectum surgery.
  • Robotic Obesity Surgery: robotic applied surgical operations shortens the recovery time of patients facilitating a quick return to normal daily activities for obesity surgeries and gastric by-pass surgeries.


Robotic Surgery for Gynecology


Since 2005, successful surgical procedures have been accomplished with the da Vinci for important surgeries such as gynecological, cancer, hysterectomy, and removal of large myomas.


Robotic Surgery for Otorhinolaryngology


Among the areas that the da Vinci is successfully being used are otor­hinolaryngology surgeries and head and neck surgeries.  This method is also called TORS (Transoral Robotic Surgery) and provides the opportunity to take out malign or benign tumors from the mouth, larynx (throat), tongue, and tonsils.


Robotic Surgery for Thyroid Diseases


The operations on the thyroid glands, can be distressing for some patients from an aesthetical perspective as the procedure may leave scars on the neck.  With the da Vinci, entering from the armpit, the thyroid is reached in the neck area.  It is possible to carry out almost all thyroid operations with the da Vinci, except for the removal of very large goiters.


Robotic Surgery for Urology


The use of robotic surgery systems is very common in the urology branch.  In many of the developed countries, surgeons prefer to use the da Vinci for a number of urological operations such as:


  • Robotic Prostatectomy (removal of the prostate)
  • Robotic Prostate Cancer Surgeries
  • Robotic Kidney Cancer Surgeries
  • Robotic Pyeloplasty – Ureteropelvic Junction Stricture Surgery
