4th Generation da Vinci Xi, at Fortis Hospital, Mulund

Fortis Hospital Mulund, introduces the Fortis Advanced Robotic Centre armed with the world’s most advanced surgical robot - 4th Generation da Vinci Xi, a new technologic leap that allows complex procedures for Cancers, Urological, Gynaecological surgeries to be performed with more precision and accuracy.

About – The da Vinci® Surgical System

The da Vinci® Surgical System is an advanced robotic platform allowing surgeons to have greater dexterity by using its efficacy to make smaller incisions and providing ergonomic comfort. Other key features include

  • Magnified vision system that provides surgeons with a 3D HD view inside the patient’s body.
  • Ergonomically designed console where the surgeon sits while operating.
  • Patient-side cart where the patient is positioned during surgery.
  • Wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand and thus increased precision.
  • Reduced blood loss thus providing a better vision for operating.
  • Enables to practice organ preserving approach with increased vision, precision and manoeuvring abilities.
  • Access to hard-to-reach and very tight places inside the human body.

What is Robotics?

Robotics is the branch of engineering that involves the conception, design, manufacture and operation of robots. In the medical field, the robots assist surgeons using specialised arms for holding instruments, camera, magnified screen and console to perform operations, typically minimally invasive procedures. With high precision and control, Robotic surgery is deemed to be safer and faster than open surgery.

Benefits of Robotic Surgery to Surgeons

  • Superior visualization
  • Superior dexterity
  • Better clinical outcome
  • Greater precision and comfort

Benefits of Robotic Surgery to Patients

  • Smaller Incision
  • Increased precision
  • Short hospital stay
  • Lesser blood loss
  • Lesser operating time
  • Lesser pain
  • Minimal scarring
  • Reduced risk of infection

What is the technology we use?

Fortis Hospital Mulund houses 4th Generation da Vinci Xi which has been designed to facilitate complex surgeries using a minimally invasive approach. With modular and flexible architecture, it addresses several limitations of earlier models. The da Vinci surgical System is operated by humans and incorporates multiple redundant safety features designed to minimize human error and inadvertent nicks while increasing precision.

Which are the specialities treated by robotics?

  • Oncology
  • Gynaecology
  • Urology

List of surgeries done under each speciality

1. Oncology

In Oncology, robotic surgery helps to remove hard-to- reach tumours by performing intricate surgeries, using specifically designed robotic arms. The increasing and successful application in tumour treatment is highly encouraging to the medical fraternity. Thus our highly skilled surgeons harness The da Vinci® Surgical System to help create better outcomes for tumour patients. The list of surgeries under Oncology includes

  • Abdominoperineal Resection
  • Low Anterior Resection Surgery
  • Right and left hemicolectomy
  • Whipple’s surgery

2. Gynaecological & Gynae-Oncology

The introduction of the da Vinci Surgical System in the field of Gynaecology and Gynae-Oncology surgery is the most remarkable breakthrough. The use of this robotic platform for Gynaecologic procedures has grown exponentially as they make surgeries more feasible. They find applications in Gynaecological oncology procedures that entail.

  • Radical Hysterectomy
  • Myomectomy

3. Urology & Uro-Oncology

There has been a huge surge in the robotics surgeries under the Urology segment as they give an edge to more complex surgeries. The prevalence of the da Vinci Surgical System has spilled over into almost all procedures in Urology & Uro-Oncology owing to its high precision. The robotic platform is being increasingly used for procedures such as

  • Radical Prostatectomy
  • Radical Cystectomy
  • Radical nephroureterectomy
  • Video Endoscopic Inguinal Lymphadenectomy (VEIL)
  • Retroperitoneal Lymph Node Dissection (RPLND)
  • Pyeloplasty


The robot functions based on the surgeon’s input who works from a computer console in the operating room, controlling miniaturized instruments mounted on robotic arms.

It is completely safe as the surgeon performs the procedure and the robot is controlled solely by the surgeon and is not capable of making decisions on its own.

Yes, the increased advantages of precision, accuracy, and flexibility make it as more recognized technique across the world.

It depends on multiple factors including the patient’s medical history, history of previous surgeries, and patient healing.

No, the doctor will decide the best option based on the patient’s health condition and other risk factors.
