What Is "Robotic Surgery?"

Some patients become alarmed at the idea of "robotic surgery" and assume that their operation will be conducted by independently-working machines. This is not true. In fact, "robot-assisted surgery" more accurately describes these procedures.

In robotic surgery, highly trained surgeons control the technology, but are able to complete more precise, less invasive procedures. While their capabilities are dramatically enhanced, doctors continue to make all the decisions during robotic surgery—not machines.

The Benefits of da Vinci Xi Surgical System

If a patient requires a surgical procedure and qualify for robotic surgery, there are numerous reasons why they should consider it. This exciting, new advancement in the medical field offers patients various benefits.

Benefits of robotic surgery often include:

  • Smaller, more discreet incisions
  • Minimal scarring
  • Faster recovery times
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Minimal risk of infection/complications
  • Less resulting pain

If you do qualify for robotic surgery, your surgeon will walk you through the process and describe what role the machines will play in completing your procedure as effectively and efficiently as possible. For more information on our da Vinci Xi Surgical System and whether or not you qualify for robotic surgery, talk to your doctors at Huntsville Memorial Hospital today.
