What is Robotic Surgery?

Where healing and technology come together.

Robotic surgery is the latest evolution of minimally invasive surgical procedures and is now available at Taylor Station Surgical Center on the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System. During surgery, three or four robotic arms are inserted into the patient though small incisions in the abdomen. One arm is a camera, two act as the surgeon’s hands and a fourth arm may be used to move obstructions out of the way. Patients are surrounded by a complete surgical team, while the surgeon is seated at a nearby console. The surgeon uses a viewfinder which provides a three dimensional image of the surgical field, and the surgeon’s hands are placed in special devices that direct the instruments. The robotic arms filter out any tremors in the physician’s hands and increase the physician’s range of motion. This enhanced precision is especially helpful to the surgeon during especially delicate portions of procedures.

Why is Robotic Surgery Different?

Robotic Surgery vs. Minimally Invasive Surgery?

With robotic-assisted surgery, surgeons can perform surgeries with increased range of motion and precision that the robotic arms offer. Minimally invasive procedures aren’t appropriate for every condition – or every patient – so please discuss your options with your physician.

Patient Benefits:

Due to small incisions, less trauma to the body and greater surgeon precision, robotic surgery provides the following benefits over traditional open procedures including:

Shorter recovery | Less blood loss | Less pain | Fewer complications, including less risk of infection | Faster return to normal activities

For surgeons, robotic surgery is more precise due to better visualization of the surgical field, correction for tremors in hand movements and greater maneuverability of instruments. 

Robotic Procedures

One of the greatest things about robotic surgery is its versatility. Surgeons at Taylor Station are using the da Vinci Surgical System in a variety of procedures, including:
