Robotic Surgery

(da Vinci® Surgical System
The provides us with a state of the art robotic platform. The system enables us to perform with unmatched precision the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions.

The patient benefits may include:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter recovery time
  • A faster return to normal daily activities

There are several advantages to using this device in surgery when compared to a standard laparoscopic approach:

  • The image is high definition and three-dimensional
  • The surgical instruments used by the da Vinci system are capable of more complex maneuvers than are possible with standard laparoscopic instruments
  • The tremors in the surgeon’s hands are not transmitted to the instruments inside the patient’s abdomen
