Robotic Surgery

Robotic surgical systems first came on the scene decades ago and they’ve evolved by leaps and bounds over the years. Now we have advanced systems like the da Vinci® surgical system that perfectly complements the surgical skills of the team at AMI Surgery. You get the best of two worlds — the team’s surgical expertise and personal attention combined with the enhanced capabilities of the robotic system.

Robotic Surgery Q & A

What should I know about robotic surgery?

Robotic surgery doesn’t replace your doctor. Your provider at AMI Surgery does the procedure by controlling the robotic system. During robotic surgery, you have a full surgical team so you get the same level of care you would expect during any operation.

Robotic surgery allows your provider to perform procedures with greater precision and control. The robotic system combines your provider’s surgical skill with technology that exceeds the dexterity of human hands.

Robotic surgery is a type of minimally invasive surgery, which means your procedure is done through small incisions. Minimally invasive procedures cause less overall trauma compared to open surgery. As a result, you’ll have less postoperative pain, a lower complication rate, and shorter hospital stays.

How does robotic surgery work?

With the da Vinci system, the surgeon’s console is the command center. Your provider sits at the console, views images of the surgical site on a monitor, and performs your surgery.

How do they do the surgery? By wearing highly sensitive controls that translate the provider’s finger and hand actions into movements performed by the da Vinci’s robotic arms.

What are the advantages of robotic surgery?

The robotic arms are smaller than an adult’s hand. This gives your provider the ability to perform procedures in tight areas inside your body and on delicate tissues using robotic assistance.

The da Vinci system also uses today’s most advanced technology. For example, the robotic system is made with EndoWrist™ instrumentation that allows fine movement and has a range of motion that’s better than human hands.

The da Vinci system has an exceptional video system that transmits high-definition, 3D images from inside your body to the surgeon’s monitor. Images also go to monitors viewed by the surgical team.

With the da Vinci system, your provider has a better and more detailed view than any other device used to see inside your body during surgery.

Does everyone qualify for robotic surgery?

The team at AMI Surgery use robotic surgery to perform many types of procedures, including general surgery. But the da Vinci system isn’t routinely used for everyone. 

The team carefully screens each patient to be sure robotic surgery is the best choice for their overall health.

To learn if your procedure can be done with robotic surgery, call AMI Surgery or book a consultation online today.
