If your primary care physician has recommended you or a loved one to seek surgery for a medical condition, you need to learn your treatment options. For some medical conditions, non-invasive medical treatments may be the first approach. Technological advancements have led to the introduction of new, less invasive surgical techniques, potentially offering a quicker recovery.
At Carolina OB/GYN, we use da Vinci® Robotic Surgery, which is a robotic-assisted minimally invasive surgery technique to help you possibly experience less blood loss, minimal pain, less scarring, and have a shorter hospital stay.
Understanding da Vinci Robotic Surgery and Its Benefits
The da Vinci Surgical System is a robot-assisted system controlled by your surgeon. It allows your surgeon to perform the surgical procedure with greater precision and control. The system has a 3D high-definition vision system that offers better vision and some tiny wristed instruments that make it possible for your surgeon to operate difficult-to-reach areas.
While the robot is performing the surgery, it is important to know that an experienced surgeon controls the procedure. The da Vinci surgical system just translates the hand movements of your surgeon into precise movements and improves the precision of surgery.
