Department of Robotic Surgery

over 6000 minimally invasive and robotic surgery cases annually



The da Vinci Robotic Surgical System is designed to provide surgeons with enhanced capabilities, including high-definition 3D vision and a magnified view. The surgeon controls the robot as it translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside the patient’s body.

Though it is often called a robot, it cannot act on its own. Instead, the surgery is performed with unmatched precision entirely by the surgeon. Together, the robotic technology, highly skilled surgeon and surgical team perform complex procedures through just a few tiny openings.


The Center for Minimally Invasive and Laparoscopic Robotic Surgery at GEM Hospital is committed to placing patient’s needs first, and is run by the best laparoscopic surgeon in Coimbatore and Chennai. The Centre continually demonstrates excellent outcomes by utilizing highly trained Robotic surgeons, compassionate bedside care and offering the very best options in technology. Robotic Surgeons at GEM Hospital perform over 6000 minimally invasive and robotic surgery cases annually, utilizing the most advanced surgical technology and techniques available today so that patients can heal faster, suffer less pain and scarring, and get back to their lives faster than ever before.


Minimally invasive surgery means that traditional large open incisions are not necessary. Instead, small incisions are made to access the area of the body requiring treatment so that surgeons specially trained in laparoscopic techniques can use tiny devices containing cameras to view the area, manipulate the tissue and perform the necessary surgical intervention.

Taking that one step further is robotic surgery in which the surgeon views the body’s intricate anatomy under high-powered magnification while using the robot’s superior tools and maneuverability, smaller and more flexible than the human hand, at a separate console to perform the entire procedure. The addition of robotic technology provides surgeons with revolutionary instruments enabling them to perform more complex procedures using a minimally invasive approach than ever before.

Our department is headed by one of the most renowned surgeons who is not only a best laparoscopic surgeon in India but is also an international faculty in the field of upper GI and laparoscopic surgery.
