What is robotic surgery?

Robotic surgery is an approach that relies on state-of-the-art technology to perform precise surgical alterations using robotic arms. Robotic surgery allows your surgeon to perform precise tissue alteration without disrupting a significant volume of the surrounding tissues. 

Some of the procedures robotic surgery can perform include:

  • Endometriosis care
  • Uterine fibroid treatment
  • Treatment for pelvic organ prolapse
  • Treatment for cervical, uterine, or ovarian cancer
  • Treatment for pelvic pain
  • Hysterectomy

If robotic surgery is a good fit for your unique set of treatment needs, your gynecologist will discuss the pros and cons of this approach. 

Is robotic surgery safe?

When you hear the term “robotic surgery,” you might envision a blocky silver robot hovering over you, wielding sharp surgical tools as you lie helpless on the treatment table. In reality, robotic surgery is safe. 

Robotic surgery platforms have several parts. A patient cart holds the robotic arms used to perform the procedure. The surgical support staff can attach numerous specialized surgical tools to the ends of these treatment arms. 

The surgeon console is nearby and allows your (human) surgeon to view high-definition, real-time imaging of your internal organs as they guide the movements of the robotic arms. Your surgeon remains in complete control of the robotic equipment from start to finish. A vision cart facilitates the signals between the patient cart and the surgeon console.  

What are the benefits of robotic surgery?

Robotic surgery offers several benefits. When this approach is a good fit for the patient’s need, robotic surgery is often the surgical method preferred by the specialists at WHASN West Valley. 

As a minimally invasive surgical system, robotic surgery does not require large incisions or significant tissue displacement. Robotic surgery reduces the volume of bleeding and infection. 

Recovery times are also shorter than traditional open surgical procedures. You can return to every day routines faster, and your recovery will likely be less painful than with open surgery. 

The surgical arms used in robotic procedures can move in all directions and lack the physical limitations of even the most skilled human hands. The precision and control of robotic surgery surpass what human surgeons can achieve.
