Pediatric robotic urologic surgery-2014.

Kearns JT, Gundeti MS - J Indian Assoc Pediatr Surg (2014)

Bottom Line: Pediatric robotic urology has been shown to be safe and effective in cases ranging from pyeloplasty to bladder augmentation with continent urinary diversion.Given the large number of children in India, there is huge potential for growth of pediatric robotic urology in India.Pediatric robotic urologic surgery has been established as safe and effective, and it will be an important tool in the future of pediatric urologic surgery worldwide.

ABSTRACT
We seek to provide a background of the current state of pediatric urologic surgery including a brief history, procedural outcomes, cost considerations, future directions, and the state of robotic surgery in India. Pediatric robotic urology has been shown to be safe and effective in cases ranging from pyeloplasty to bladder augmentation with continent urinary diversion. Complication rates are in line with other methods of performing the same procedures. The cost of robotic surgery continues to decrease, but setting up pediatric robotic urology programs can be costly in terms of both monetary investment and the training of robotic surgeons. The future directions of robot surgery include instrument and system refinements, augmented reality and haptics, and telesurgery. Given the large number of children in India, there is huge potential for growth of pediatric robotic urology in India. Pediatric robotic urologic surgery has been established as safe and effective, and it will be an important tool in the future of pediatric urologic surgery worldwide.

Figure 3: Timeline of robotic surgery

Mentions: Pediatric urological surgery is in the midst of a major paradigm shift in the delivery of care [Figure 3]. Where large incisions for open surgery were once required, even the most complex of cases can be formed in a minimally invasive fashion because of robotic technology. The next decade of progress will involve further validation of robotic procedures now that we are past the learning curve and dissemination of robotic technology worldwide to ensure all have access to this modern medical tool. Currently, we have shown most procedures can be performed with comparable outcomes-now is the time to have large clinical trials and refine the technology to be available universally. This is the beginning platform of the digital age of the 21st century with a promising future.
