Robotic Surgery Q & A

What is robotic surgery?

Robotic surgery is a method of minimally invasive surgery that relies on smaller instruments and incisions to perform surgical procedures. Robotic surgery works by allowing your doctor to operate miniaturized surgical instruments attached to robotic arms.

Known as the da VinciⓇ robotic surgical system, it consists of several robotic arms that can be controlled from a console by your surgeon. For most patients, robotic surgery is a much safer option than traditional open surgery.

The benefits of robotic surgery include:

  • Minimal scarring
  • Quicker recovery
  • Reduced risk of infection
  • Reduced blood loss

Robotic surgery allows your doctor to perform surgical procedures with greater precision and less trauma to the treatment area.

What conditions can be treated with robotic surgery?

Robotic surgery is incredibly versatile and can be used in a number of surgical applications. Many conditions that once required open surgery can now be addressed through minimally invasive robotic surgery.

The doctors at the Urology Specialist Group uses robotic surgery to address a number of conditions, including:

  • Prostate cancer
  • Enlarged prostate
  • Kidney cancer
  • Bladder cancer
  • Fistulas
  • Pelvic organ prolapse

Robotic surgery is an excellent option for addressing surgical needs in minimally invasive applications. Procedures that once required traditional surgical methods can now be addressed with minimal trauma to the body.

This innovative technique gives your surgeon increased vision, precision, and flexibility during procedures. Conditions like prostate cancer and bladder cancer that require the removal of tumors can be performed with minimal trauma using robotic surgery.

Is robotic surgery safe?

The advantages of robotic surgery make it a safer option than traditional surgery in many applications. Robotic surgery allows for surgical procedures to be performed on a smaller surgical area, causing less pain, scarring, and fewer complications.

Like all methods of surgery, robotic surgery does come with its risks. Although robotic surgery can limit trauma and the risk of infection, the possibility of scarring and infection still exists.

The urologists at the Urology Specialist Group have experience with the most advanced robotic surgery techniques. To find out if robotic surgery is the right treatment option for you, schedule a consultation online or by phone today.
