A one-day workshop on the use of robotics in urology was held at Meenakshi Mis­sion Hospital and Research Centre (MMHRC) here on Monday. The event was inaugurat­ed by Sudhir Kumar Rawal, Medical Director and Chief of Genito Uro-oncology Ser­vices, Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute and Research Centre, Delhi, and Ganesh Gopalakrishnan, Senior Consultant, Vedanayagam Hospital, Coimbatore. R. Ravichandran, Senior Con­sultant and Head, Depart­ment of Urology and An­drology, MMHRC, said, “Robotic radical prostatec­tomy is a surgery complete­ly revolutionised by the ro­botic system. The advantages to the patient are faster recovery, less pain and shorter hospital stay”. “One of the most com­mon myths about robotic surgery among patients is that the surgery is being done by a machine. The truth is that the machine is always completely under the control of the surgeon,” said D. Paul Vincent, Senior Consultant, Department of Urology and Andrology.
