Your SSNV doctor may recommend robotic surgery, a minimally invasive procedure enhanced by the precision of robotics. These procedures use specialized equipment controlled by your surgeon. The robotic systems we use feature magnified, 3D high-definition vision and special instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand, providing your surgeon with enhanced vision, precision and control. Your surgeon is in full control of the robotic instruments at all times; they do not move on their own.
Robotic surgery benefits our patients. Typically, it requires smaller incisions, reduced blood loss, shortened hospital stays, lower pain, faster recovery and reduced scarring. Your surgeon can answer specific questions about your procedure and why robotic surgery is being used over open surgery.
Robotic Surgery is often recommended for:
- Abdominal exploration, lysis of adhesions
- Bowel surgery (colon resection)
- Cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal)
- Hernia repair
- Nissen (anti-reflux procedure)
