While our professionals have the knowledge and skills to treat patients with surgery, we will also use robotic surgery to increase precision. Technological advancement allows us to use robotic surgery to prevent a variety of issues and resulting conditions from traditional forms of surgery. We mainly use robotic surgery with complex procedures that require precision, flexibility and more control.
Robotic surgery helps us to perform minimally invasive procedures that require tiny incisions where delicacy is necessary to treat the issue while causing as little damage as possible.
How does robotic surgery work?
While it may sound like something out of a novel or movie, robotic surgery is effective and in some cases, the better option for patients in need of treatment. The robotic system includes one arm with a camera and another arm with the necessary surgical instruments. The surgeon will control the robot from a console near the operating table with a high definition view of the specific part of the patient’s body.
While people may worry about the procedure or something going wrong, the surgeon has other team members in the operating room on standby to assist if necessary. The view on the console helps the surgeon to clearly see the details of the surgical site and perform the treatment with precision.
The robotic equipment allows us to complete minimally invasive procedures with more precision than ever before. However, the other team members are there to ensure that everything goes without issue.
Benefits of robotic surgery
There are even more benefits to robotic surgery than some people realize. With robotic surgery, we can have fewer complications that are known to occur after the surgery such as possible infection at the surgical site. While we do everything in our power to prevent infection following surgery, patients who receive surgery at other locations have experienced infection before. We can also decrease pain and blood loss following robotic surgery.
Robotic surgery can lead to a faster recovery than other non-robotically assisted surgeries. Another benefit is that there will be a smaller scar left behind after a surgery. This scar will fade more quickly than scars from other surgeries. While the risks are minimal, we need to review each patient before going through with the robotic surgery.
The treatment process
If the patient’s current condition calls for minimally invasive surgery, then we will consider robotic surgery as the treatment. In order to determine the most effective treatment option, we will need to examine the patient’s current condition, health history and possible allergies. Once we have all of the necessary information, we will go over the treatment with the patient and patient’s loved ones if necessary.
If you or a loved one is interested in robotic surgery for a treatment, do not hesitate to give us a call at 718-416-6429. We will schedule an appointment as soon as possible to determine if robotic surgery is the most effective treatment. We can help you get back on track to a healthier life.
