Robotic Surgery

Technology Taking Surgery Beyond Traditional Limits


For over five decades, surgeons at Ruby Hall Clinic have been at the forefront of surgical care while refining its techniques. We’re now changing the experience of surgery for the surgeon, the hospital and most importantly for the patient. Robotic technology takes surgery beyond the limits of the human hand, introducing precise, versatile instrument movement. Revolutionary surgical technology has arrived at our hospital – and it is in the form of a robot named the da Vinci Si® Surgical System. The robotic system is named after Leonardo da Vinci, inventor of the first robot who was known for his unparalleled anatomical accuracy and 3-D details that brought his masterpieces to life. With the addition of the da Vinci, our surgeons now have helping hands in the operating room, providing enhanced dexterity, fine motor skills, precision and control during minimally invasive procedures and even multi-quadrant surgeries doing wonders to our surgical prowess.


The use of robotics is changing surgical care dramatically. Robotic surgery differs from traditional laparoscopic surgery because surgeons are able to perform more complex procedures on more critical patients than previously possible. As technology continues to advance, our patients experience better healthcare practices, thanks to robotics. Some of the many benefits of robotic surgery can be highlighted as follows:

  • Short hospital stay
  • Reduced pain and discomfort
  • Faster recovery time and return to normal activities
  • Smaller incisions, resulting in reduced risk of infection
  • Reduced blood loss and transfusions
  • Minimal scarring

Scope of Robotic Surgery


Our robotic surgical system can be used to treat all urological procedures ranging from prostatectomy, cystectomy, partial nephrectomy, pyeloplasty, ureteric re-implantation and bladder augmentation. Doctors now have the opportunity to perform more intricate procedures for the prostate, kidneys and bladder with minimally invasive incisions.


Utilising robotic technology, surgeons are able to treat many women who have complex gynaecological problems, that traditionally would require large abdominal incisions resulting in significant postoperative pain, blood loss and scarring.


Our experienced surgeons are leaders in performing minimally-invasive procedures for prostate, kidney, breast, ovarian, colorectal, gastrointestinal, pancreas and thyroid cancers, amongst others.

General Surgery

Robotic surgery is a boon for minimal access care needed in general surgical indications. Our team is on par for the same with the world.


Our surgeons are national leaders in using conducting weight-loss surgery, including gastric bypass, adjustable band and revisional bariatric procedures. Using the robot’s micro-instruments, our surgeons can meticulously navigate inside the abdomen, while protecting the surrounding tissues and intestines.

Head and Neck ENT

Tumours in the throat, base of the tongue, and tonsils can be a technical challenge to reach and have traditionally been removed through surgeries requiring a large neck incision and cutting of the bottom jaw. Advances in surgical equipment have made it possible to reach these tumours through the mouth by using robotic technology.

G I Surgery

Robotic G I surgery is a new vista opened in the care of patients. This has changed how G I Surgery is delivered to the patients.
