Robotic surgery and computer-assisted surgery are procedures that use robotic systems to aid surgeons when performing operations. Robotic surgery often means a shorter recovery time and smaller incisions.
Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgery
When you choose robotic surgery, you’re choosing one of the least invasive surgical treatments available today. Robotic surgery offers the potential for you to experience less pain and bleeding, fewer complications and a faster recovery time.
At Baptist, our surgeons are highly experienced in the art of robotic surgery so you can trust you’re in good hands. We offer robotic surgery for the heart, gallbladder, colorectal conditions, prostate, lungs, weight-loss surgery, gynecological
procedures and more.
Potential Benefits of Robotic-Assisted Surgery
Our robotic, minimally invasive technology is beneficial in that it can reduce the use of and exposure to radiation and fluoroscopy, enhancing safety. This technology offers greater accuracy than traditional open surgery and is able to make smaller incisions
while helping to reduce risks and recovery time to get you back to your daily routine, faster. This technology allows the surgeon to plan placement of spine hardware prior to surgery, minimizing human error and potentially improving your outcome.
For qualified candidates, robotic-assisted surgery offers numerous potential benefits over the traditional open surgery, including:
Shorter hospital stay
Less risk of infection
Less blood loss and transfusions
Quicker return to normal activities
Procedures offered at Baptist Health System
Surgical procedures that can be performed using the robotic-assisted surgery include (but are not limited to):
