As with laparoscopic surgery, robotic surgery uses small incisions that result in fewer traumas to the body than traditional open surgery. Surgeons gain a magnified 3D view inside the body, allowing for improved visualization and the ability to clearly see the target area and its anatomy. Furthermore, the robotic surgical system filters hand tremors from surgeons and scales down movement, which is vital when working in small, intricate areas of the body. Surgeons are able to work sitting down comfortably in a console as they perform surgery through the robotic arms, resulting in an efficient surgery with less blood loss and tissue injury.
All robotic surgeries done at South Lake Hospital facilities are performed by highly-trained teams of surgeons from different specialties. South Lake Hospital surgeons have multiple years of combined experience in robotic surgeries.
