Dr Zaharuddin Rahmat @ Mohd.Rawi is a certified Da Vinci robotic surgeon, well-trained robotic-assisted laparoscopy surgery for gynaecology for non cancerous cases such as fibroid, ovarian cyst, endometriosis, pre-cancerous changes, and for radical gynaecology surgery such as cancer of endometrium and cancer of cervix.

What is Robotic Surgery?

To operate using the Robotic system, Dr Zaharuddin makes tiny incisions in your body and inserts miniaturized instruments and a high-definition three-dimensional camera, and sometimes skin incisions are not required at all. Then, from a nearby console, he manipulates those instruments to perform the operation.

Think of the Robotic system like a supercomputer which allows the machine to translate the surgeon's movements into real-time allowing for greater precision. During a robotic-assisted procedure, Dr Zaharuddin uses master controls at the surgeon console to direct the instruments during the surgery. The computer translates the surgeon’s movements to the instruments that move exactly as the surgeon moves, inside the patient’s body. Dr Zaharuddin is in control of the robot the whole time; the surgical system responds to the direction they provide.

What should you know about Robotic Surgery?

Conventional Laparoscopy VS

Robotic Surgery

Minimal invasive surgery is the preferred method of surgery nowadays for treatment of gynaecological tumours because its cosmetic small cuts on the abdomen, relatively less pain and early recovery.

Laparoscopic and robotic surgery are both minimally invasive and very commonly used by surgeons for procedures of the abdomen and pelvis. These two types of surgeries differ from traditional open surgery because they require small cuts and use a camera that magnifies the view of the procedure.

However, there are technological advancements in robotic surgery that make these procedures easier for surgeons to perform and for patients to recover from.

Laparoscopic surgery is performed by hand, with the help of a two-dimensional camera. Robotic surgery, meanwhile, requires the surgeon to operate instruments from outside the patient’s body, using a console and a three-dimensional camera.

Traditionally, laparoscopic surgery is used to examine and perform surgery on organs in the abdomen and pelvis. Because of the robot’s advanced technology, robotic surgery is equipped to handle more complex operations especially cancer surgeries.

During robotic-assisted laparoscopic  surgery, the surgeon makes small cuts in the abdomen and uses robotic arms to separate the uterus from its surroundings. A robotic surgery is different from a traditional surgery because the surgeon controls the robotic arms with a controller while looking at a screen instead of being over top of the patient’s body. The surgeon has complete control over the robotic arms at all times. Because robotic surgery gives the surgeon a clear and precise view and better dexterity, it typically results in less pain, fewer complications and quicker recovery time for the patient.

What are the Benefits of Robotic-assisted Surgery?

There are many benefits to having a Robotic-assisted surgery. A Robotic-assisted surgery benefits you directly -shorter recovery time as well as indirectly - the surgeon has better visualization, leading to a more precise surgery. 

Other benefits:

  • The surgeon has greater range of motion and dexterity

  • The surgeon sees a highly-magnified, high-resolution image of the operating field

  • The surgeon has better access to the area being operated on

  • Fewer complications during surgery

  • Shorter hospital stay

  • Less risk of infection

  • Less blood loss and fewer blood transfusions

  • Less pain

  • Faster recovery

  • Quicker return to daily routine

What are the risks?

Like any surgical procedure, robotic surgery carries inherited surgical risks, including bleeding, damage to the bladder and other nearby organs, infection, reaction to anesthesia, blood clots that form in the legs and can travel to the lungs.


Overall, these risks are significantly lessened when compared to surgery through a larger incision. However, robotic-assisted surgery takes more time to complete than other surgery methods, such as traditional open laparotomy surgery.
