What's Robotic Surgery?
You're probably envisioning a robot in the operating room performing your procedure. However, your entire surgery team is still at your bedside and your doctor is in the same room, just a few feet away.
We utilize robotic surgery at TriStar Greenview because operations are performed with greater precisionand smaller incisions than a human could achieve.
- The surgeon sits at a control panel to drive the surgical instruments.
- Robotic arms are just there to manipulate tissue and provide more dexterity than a human wrist or finger.
- The digital console provides a 3D, high definition view of your anatomy with accurate depth perception.
Why Have Robotic Surgery?
Traditional surgery is done by hand through one large cut in an abdomen, whereas minimally invasive surgery is performed with robotic assistance and smaller incisions.
Over 3 million people worldwide have had minimally invasive, robotic assisted surgery utilizing the same technology available at TriStar Greenview. Patients experience benefits such as:
- Less scarring
- Less blood loss
- Faster recovery time
- Less pain
- Less risk of infection
- Shorter hospital stay
