Robotic-assisted surgery can help reduce pain, recovery time and save lives with the remarkable skills of our surgical team.
Robotic-assisted surgery allows our surgical care team to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through small incisions with unmatched precision. This means less pain and a quicker recovery time for patients.
The da Vinci Robotic Surgical System is considered by many the preferred treatment for surgeries ranging from partial nephrectomies to treat kidney cancer to hysterectomies, many pelvic-floor surgeries, certain thoracic surgeries, hernia repair and more. Our team has mastered the art of this technique since 2005, making Bellin Health the easiest, safest and most cost-effective choice for your surgical needs.
Rather than standing over the patient, a primary surgeon sits at a console in the operating room. At this console, they view an enhanced, 3D imaging of the surgical field. Using special controllers, they perform the surgery using hand movements at the console and a high-definition monitor to view the body cavity through a tiny camera, displaying real-time footage from a small port and operating the system accordingly.
This specially calibrated robot-like tool helps the surgeon maintain seamless precision, all through 1-2 centimeters incisions. This allows them to maneuver instruments exactly as needed, even in a small space within the body. Unlike standard laparoscopic surgery, the da Vinci surgical system allows increased freedom of motion to perform meticulous operations.
Heal Faster with Minimally Invasive Procedures
Minimally invasive surgery is typically performed through small incisions rather than large incisions or open surgery. It helps reduce harm to muscles, nerves and tissue, even in small or complicated surgeries. You can expect to experience less pain, faster recovery and smaller scars following your procedure.
Most patients also experience fewer complications and reduced hospital costs due to shorter hospital stays. As a result, decreased time in the hospital and risk of complications means robotic-assisted surgery may be a more cost-effective surgical option than other traditional methods. These benefits will vary depending on your circumstances and the type of procedure performed.
In general, robotic-assisted surgery offers the following advantages:
- Decreased blood transfusions
- Less blood loss
- Less chance of infection
- Less post-operative pain
- Quicker recovery time
- Smaller incisions
