At Laparoscopic Surgery Center, we use a device called the Da Vinci Robot to perform robotic surgery. Our robot allows us to perform complex procedures with the precision of robot technology. The Da Vinci Robot can be used in colon resections, bowel resections, hernias, and other treatments.
Robotic Surgery Procedures
Robotic surgery is a type of minimally invasive technique, used as an alternative to traditional open surgery to treat numerous health conditions. Similar to other laparoscopic procedures, robotic surgery uses a series of small incisions, which allow a camera and surgical instruments to be introduced into the body to perform the procedure.
During surgery, the surgeon views the internal environment through a high definition 3-D visualization system, giving them greater depth perception and more detailed views than traditional methods. The surgeon controls the movement of the robotic arms from a remote console in the operating room, allowing for 360-degree articulation capabilities and unparalleled precision. The robotic system's computer technology translates the surgeon's hand movements into micro-movements conducted by four robotic arms. The systems also
Robotic-assisted procedures offer many advantages over other surgical techniques. Patients who undergo robotic surgery can benefit from:
- Less blood loss
- Minimized scarring
- Less time spent in surgery
- Reduced postoperative pain and recovery time
- Minimized damage to surrounding tissues, including delicate nerve endings
- Lower risk of infection and other complications
Our surgeons have had great success implementing robotics in hernia repair and
Why Choose Us?
Our doctors are at the forefront of advancing robotic surgical techniques. In fact, we are the first practice in New York to offer robotic-assisted procedures in an ambulatory (outpatient) setting. As a result of the excellent patient outcomes we have been able to achieve, overnight hospital stays are not required for many of the surgeries that we offer. This means that our patients spend even less time away from their daily routines than some other minimally invasive surgical techniques. Our surgeons have spent years developing their skills using robotic-assisted procedures and are widely recognized as pioneers in the community.
