Robotic General Surgery
In traditional laparoscopic surgery, manual rigid instruments are used to perform the procedure. With the da Vinci® Surgical System, a 3D immersive view of the targeted area on the patient’s body and minimal incisions are used.When conducting robotic surgery, Orlando Health surgeons are able to perform general surgery with minimally invasive techniques. Coupled with the surgeon’s expertise, the da Vinci® Surgical System mimics the surgeon’s hands movements while simultaneously helping reduce tremors and enabling big movements to be scaled down.
Benefits of opting for robotic surgery include increased precision, smaller incisions, less blood loss, fewer complications, shorter hospital stays and faster recoveries*.
