Robotic Surgery Q & A

What is robotic surgery?

Robotic surgery with the da Vinci surgical system involves the use of 3D high-definition cameras and specialized surgical tools that allow your surgeon at the Center for Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery to operate with more precision.

Your surgeon controls the surgical instruments with robotic-assisted technology that requires only small incisions to make repairs or remove damaged or diseased tissues. The physicians at the Center for Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery are fully trained in the da Vinci technology so you receive the highest-quality surgical care to ensure the best possible outcome.

How does robotic surgery work?

Robotic surgery using the da Vinci system allows the surgical team at CMIRS to perform even complex procedures without causing unnecessary trauma to your body. During a procedure, your surgeon inserts a tiny camera through a small incision in the treatment area, which sends a high-definition, real-time 3D image of the surgical site to an external monitor.

Your surgeon uses specialized computer-assisted technology to perform the surgery. They guide the surgical instruments using a console, which allows for a greater range of motion to make necessary repairs.

What procedures can be treated with robotic surgery?

The skilled surgical team at the Center for Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery can treat numerous conditions using minimally invasive robotic surgery techniques, including:

  • Hernias
  • Appendicitis
  • Colon disease
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)

After a full evaluation of your condition and overall health, the surgical team at the Center for Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery can determine if robotic surgery is right for you.

While not suitable for everyone, minimally invasive robotic surgery using the da Vinci system offers many benefits over traditional open surgery.

What are the benefits of robotic surgery?

One of the biggest differences between traditional open surgery and robotic surgery is that the latter techniques only require small incisions to perform the procedure. This offers many benefits for your outcome and your recovery.

The benefits of robotic surgery include:

  • Less pain
  • Minimal scarring
  • Reduced risk of infection
  • Shorter stay in the hospital

All of these factors mean you can expect to recover faster and more effectively from robotic surgery than traditional open surgery.
