Robot-assisted surgery is a slightly invasive surgery that uses advanced robotic technology to assist surgeons during surgical procedures. Unlike traditional surgery, which often requires large incisions and extensive trauma to your body, Frisco robotic surgery uses small incisions and specialized robotic instruments that your surgeon controls from a console.
Robotic technology allows for greater accuracy and control during surgery, resulting in better outcomes and fewer patient complications. Additionally, robot-assisted surgery’s minimally invasive approach can lead to a faster recovery time and a quicker return to normal activities. Below are the benefits of robot-assisted surgery:
- Greater precision
In robot-assisted surgery, your surgeon uses a computer console to control small, precise movements of robotic arms that hold surgical instruments. This level of control allows for more precise movements than the human hand alone, leading to greater accuracy during the procedure. Additionally, the robot’s arms can rotate 360 degrees, allowing your surgeon to access hard-to-reach areas easily.
- Minimal tissue damage
During robot-assisted surgery, your provider uses a robotic system to perform the procedure through tiny incisions, resulting in minimal damage to the surrounding tissue. Unlike traditional open surgery, where doctors create large incisions to gain access to the affected area, robot-assisted surgery uses small incisions that can minimize scarring and blood loss. Additionally, the robotic system allows for greater accuracy, reducing the risk of damage to healthy tissue surrounding the surgical site.
- Minimal scarring
Unlike traditional open surgery, robot-assisted surgery involves making small incisions, allowing for faster recovery and less visible scarring. The robotic instruments are designed to provide a three-dimensional view of the surgical site, enabling your surgeon to perform delicate procedures with greater control, resulting in minimal scarring.
- Shorter hospital stay
Robot-assisted surgery requires smaller and fewer incisions than traditional surgery, which means less trauma to your body and a quicker recovery time. Additionally, the precision of the robotic system allows for more targeted and efficient surgeries, reducing the need for multiple procedures and hospital stays. As a result, you will have a shorter hospital stay, which can lead to lower healthcare costs and a faster return to normal activities.
- Reduced postoperative pain
During traditional surgeries, your provider makes large incisions, resulting in significant trauma to the surrounding tissues, causing a lot of postoperative pain. In contrast, robot-assisted surgery utilizes small incisions that are less invasive, resulting in a lower risk of complications and thereby reducing postoperative pain.
Minimally invasive surgery with the state-of-the-art da Vinci® Surgical System Xi
The da Vinci® Surgical System Xi is a state-of-the-art robotic surgical system that enables minimally invasive surgery with increased precision, control, and accuracy. During the surgery, your surgeon sits at the console and utilizes hand and foot controls to operate the robotic arms equipped with specialized surgical instruments. Your provider inserts the robotic arms through the small incisions in your body and uses the instruments to perform the surgery. The high-definition 3D vision system gives your doctor a clear view of the surgical site, allowing for greater accuracy and reducing your risk of complications.
