Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences (AIMS) conducted the state's first robotic surgery for kidney blockages. The surgery was conducted on a 10 year old boy. The boy was suffering from congenital problem called recurrent hydronephrosis. Dr Mohan Abraham, the pediatric surgeon who led the surgery said, "The 3D vision makes it easier to distinguish structures. Also, robotic surgery is more versatile than laparoscopic surgery because of the mobility of the robotic arms. In this particular case, after a surgery there will be lot of adhesion and distortion of anatomy".
