With Robotic Surgery, Patient Adenomyosis Now No Need Longer Lift Uterus
Robotic surgical technologies make physicians no longer need
to open the patient's abdomen while performing surgery. In addition to minimize
pain and scarring, robotic surgery was also able to eliminate the procedure of
lifting the uterus for some diseases, such as adenomyosis.
Dr. Sita Arumi, SpOG, one of the doctors who are members of
Advanced Robotic Surgery and Minimal Invasion (Armis) RS Bunda Jakarta said
that usually, lift the uterus is the only way to cure ademiosis. However,
thanks to the technology of robotic surgery, patients adenomyosis now no longer
need to lift the uterus.
"So that's ademiosis stuck in the muscle tissue of the
uterus. It could be for example by open surgery or laparoscopic ordinary
cleaned and removed, but because of its roots, will be recurred. Therefore,
doctors usually recommend to lift the uterus," said Dr. Sita.
Adenomyosis is a disease that occurs due to abnormal growth
of endometrial tissue. These conditions make women who experience menstrual
pain is very severe and bleeding more than usual. In some cases, adeno miosis
also cause pain in the hip during intercourse.
Dr. Sita explained that because of its roots, a doctor may
recommend surgery to remove the uterus melakukakan. But this becomes a problem
when patients treated unmarried or do not have children, so do not want her
"With laparoscopy can however be less effective and
efficient. Well if the robotic surgery we could cut the affected part of the
uterus, and still leaves the uterine wall, then closed and sewn," he said
Dr. Sita is said that this operation can only be done with
open surgery. But he said that more patients choose surgery robotic surgery
because the scar is smaller.
Dr. Ivan R Sini, SpOG who is also the team doctor Armis RS
Bunda Jakarta said that not only surgical adenomyosis that could be done with
robotic surgery. Another surgical operations such as prostate or colon surgery
robotic surgery can also be handled.
"As a doctor of course, we give you the option of
surgery to be performed to the patient. Want to open surgery, laparoscopic or
robotic surgery. Now each described plus or minus factor. Of course we wants
that the risk of pain, complications and most small scar," he said.
Because robotic surgery is a new technology with the fewest
risk factors, Dr. Ivan said that eventually many patients who choose to do
robotic surgery. In addition to the cutting-edge technology, robotic surgery
also turned out to be assessed more efficiently.
"The scars are smaller, less pain while the price is
not much different from laparoscopy. If laparoscopic right between USD 40-70
million. While robotic surgery we now USD 120-130 million and could be cheaper
if the patient more and more," he said.
