You may have already heard about robotic surgery. If you have, you’re sure to have many questions regarding it. And that’s what we’re here for. But one thing begs no question: that the experts at South Lake OB/GYN are the people to see for your gynecological robotic surgery needs.
What is Robotic Surgery?
Robotic surgery is designed to carry out complex surgery using a minimally-invasive approach.
What is Minimally-Invasive Surgery?
Minimally-invasive surgery is a method that uses small incisions as opposed to large ones. Robotic surgery makes this much easier to carry out, and with much greater precision.
Does the Surgery Work on its Own?
No, a doctor still has to operate the system. You’re not going to be left in the operating room with only a robot to carry out the surgery, so don’t worry.
How Does the Surgery Work?
The technology uses electronic and mechanical robots as well as a camera, which allows the doctor to view the body on a monitor.
What are the Benefits of Robotic Surgery?
There are considerable benefits to choosing robotic surgery. Let’s check some of them out.
Smaller incisions mean smaller scars. This is because robotic surgery can carry out surgical tasks with much greater precision.
Less Blood Loss
Smaller incisions will cause less overall blood loss than open surgery.
Lower Risk of Infection
Smaller incisions and less blood loss also mean less chance of infection.
Robotic surgery offers faster recovery than open surgery due to less blood loss, smaller incisions, and more precision.
What Can the Surgery Be Used to Treat?
Robotic surgery can be used to perform numerous different operations. Let’s take a look at some of the medical issues that it can be used to treat.
- Issues with bowels
- Gynecological conditions
- Removal of tumors and growths
