Mr Mukhtar Ahmad
MB, BS MMedSci FRCS(Eng)
Mr Ahmad is one of only few certified robotic colorectal surgeons in the UK and offers robotic surgery to selected patients with rectal cancer or rectal prolapse.
What is Robotic Surgery?
A very small 3D camera and surgical instruments are introduced inside the patient's abdomen through tiny incisions just as in conventional keyhole surgery. The camera provides the surgeon with a magnified 360 degree view of the operative field. The arms of the robot are attached to the instruments which are controlled by the surgeon remotely from a console.
The potential benefits are better functional outcomes because of the higher definition of the picture and greater flexibility of the robotic instruments.
