Da Vinci Robotic Surgery
Surgeons need to have a very high level of training to be able to do Robotic Assisted Surgery. Our surgeon has advanced training and is extremely skilled in Robotic Assisted Surgery.
What is Robotic Surgery?
Robotic Assisted Surgery also known as Robotic Surgery is a new way of performing minimally invasive surgery. It uses the same type of small incisions as laparoscopic surgery. Robotic surgery is a newer kind of minimally invasive surgery. The surgeon makes small incisions, but the instruments work through a robotic device. The surgeon sits at a console and operates the robot’s arms, which in turn move tiny tools inside the patient’s body. Surgeons need to have a very high level of training to be able to do Robotic Assisted Surgery. Our surgeons have advanced training and are extremely skilled in Robotic Assisted Surgery.
What Are Some Advantages & Disadvantages to Robotic Assisted Surgery?
Traditional laparoscopic instruments are straight and some may have the ability to curve (articulate). Laparoscopic surgery frequently is limited to a 2D monitor like a TV.
There are several advantages to Robotic Assisted Surgery. The surgeon can view a high-quality, 3D image and can move his or her hands and wrists more naturally. The robot can reduce tremors in the surgeon’s movements and is helpful for surgery in tight spaces in the body. Robotic surgery is particularly helpful for certain types of procedures in which access is difficult.
Robotic Assisted Surgery also gives the ability to have instruments that mimic a surgeon’s hands to a certain extent. This is because each robotic instrument has two joints. This gives the surgeon the ability to do difficult procedures with more ease.
Disadvantages include a significant learning curve for surgeons to become fully expert. Some surgeons miss the “feel” of direct contact with the patient’s organs. And robotic surgery can take longer, regardless of the surgeon’s expertise.
