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
