  • Robot-assisted surgery allows doctors to perform many types of complex procedures with more precision, flexibility and control than is possible with conventional techniques.
  • Robotic surgery is usually associated with minimally invasive surgery — procedures performed through tiny incisions.
  • The system includes a camera arm and mechanical arms with surgical instruments attached to them. The surgeon controls the arms while seated at a computer console near the operating table.
  • The console gives the surgeon a high-definition, magnified, 3-D view of the surgical site.

MINIMALLY INVASIVE ADVANTAGES

  • FEWER COMPLICATIONS (E.G. SURGICAL SITE INFECTION)
  • LESS PAIN AND BLOOD LOSS
  • QUICKER RECOVERY
  • SMALLER, LESS NOTICEABLE SCARS
