The cornerstone of our Minimally Invasive Surgery program is the cuttting-edge technology of the da Vinci® Surgical Robot. With da Vinci robot-assisted surgery, surgeons are able to perform less-invasive surgery with a greater level of sophistication, an increased range of motion and more precise movements while enhancing their skills with delicate instrumentation. Though it is often called a “robot,” the da Vinci cannot act on its own—the surgery is performed entirely by your surgeon.
Robotic surgery is still performed through small incisions like laparoscopy, but with the surgeon controlling the instruments from a console a few feet away. If you live in or near Melbourne, FL then we would love to discuss your robotic surgery options with you.
It is Minimally Invasive Surgery. We place the Ports the same way as laparoscopy on the patient and then “dock” or connect the robot. The instruments go through the Ports and this are controlled by the surgeon from the console.
Benefits of Robotic Surgery
- Decrease human tremor.
- Enhanced visualization with 3D camera.
- Increase range of motion and dexterity.
- Minimally Invasive (keyhole surgery).
