How Robotic Surgery Works
Robot-assisted surgery lets AnMed surgeons perform complex procedures through a few tiny incisions or no incisions—leading to less pain and scarring afterward. A miniature camera gives your surgeon a remarkably clear, magnified, high-definition view inside the body. Your surgeon controls the robot’s very flexible, steady “hands,” allowing intricate, precise care that gives you the best possible results.
Benefits of Robotic Surgery
Because robotic surgery is minimally invasive, it can offer several benefits over traditional surgery, including:
- Shorter hospital stay and faster recovery
- Less pain and blood loss
- Smaller scars
- Reduced risk of infection and complications
Robotic Procedures We Offer
AnMed surgeons may use robotic equipment for a range of procedures, including:
- Mitral valve (heart) surgery
- Gallbladder removal
- Joint replacement
- Gynecological procedures, such as hysterectomy
- Prostate surgery
Ask your doctor if your treatment will use the da Vinci robot. If it doesn’t, your surgeon may use other technology to make your procedure less invasive.
