In addition to advanced laparoscopic surgery, we also perform robotic surgery. Both surgeries are minimally invasive and provide the most precise surgery and shortest recovery, but a few key differences exist:
Robotic surgery provides:
- Magnified 3-D visualization
- Ability to control multiple instruments at once
- Wider ranges of movement and articulation
- •Better access to various parts of the body
In robotic surgery, the surgeon directs the robot’s movements from a console, causing the robotic instruments in your body to respond in real-time. Providing the highest possible level of dexterity, robotic instruments can rotate a full 360 degrees and are more flexible than a human hand or wrist.
Robotic surgery is utilized for a wide range of procedures, including:
- Hernia repair
- Pelvic surgery
- Bariatric surgery
