With state of the art technology, our surgeons at AMI Surgery are able to transcend the limitations of open surgery and laparoscopy using robotic surgery. This futuristic technology provides a virtual extension of the surgeon’s eyes and hands thereby expanding their ability to offer a minimally invasive option for many complex surgical procedures.
ABOUT ROBOTIC SURGERY
In 2000, the FDA approved Robotic surgery with the da Vinci Surgical System, which has been quickly adopted by US and European hospitals to treat a wide range of conditions.
ROBOTIC SURGERY BENEFITS AND FEATURES
One of the greatest advantages of the robotic technology is its ability to offer less invasive methods to perform technically challenging and more complex surgeries. In comparison to conventional open surgeries, patients undergoing robotic surgery have been shown to have:
- Shorter hospital stays
- Lower complication rates
- Less postoperative pain
- On a more technical side, our surgeons appreciate features of this state-of-the-art robotic technology, such as:
- High-resolution, 3D video
- Fully articulating surgical instruments
- Unparalleled dexterity, precision, and control
Robotic technology also has a system simulator to allow surgeons to perform drills and improve their performance on the robot.
The risks associated with robotic surgery are the same as the risks for all surgical procedures.
