The technique will soon be made available at Govind Ballabh Pant Medical College and Hospital in collaboration with the International Society of Robotic Surgery (ISRS).

"Initially, ISRS surgeons will do the robotic surgeries. Then hospital doctors will be trained," state health minister Tapan Chakraborty said Friday.

He said over Rs.16 crore had been spent on infrastructure and machines to enable the surgeries.

Explaining the procedure, a surgeon at the hospital told IANS that in a robotic surgery, only three incursions of a centimeter each are made, preventing heavy bleeding and reducing rehabilitation period.

The doctor said the technique was effective in kidney transplants and bypass, cardiac, oncological and gynecological surgeries.
