Robotic Surgery Using da Vinci System in Brevard County, FL

Minimally Invasive Surgery Options

The da Vinci robotic system is a surgical system that aids surgeons in minimally invasive procedures. The system was designed to provide surgeons with enhanced capabilities, including high-precision movements of the surgical instruments, improved access to hard-to-reach anatomical locations and 3DHD viewing of the surgery that magnifies 10x what the human eye can see.

When hearing the words robot or robotic, you may think a surgeon is not performing your surgery. However, that is not the case. Your surgeon still performs the surgery, but the da Vinci system translates your surgeon’s hand movements in real time, thus moving the surgical instruments more precisely.

Benefits of Robotic Surgery

There are a range of benefits when robotic assisted surgery is performed vs a traditional, manual surgery. These include:

  • Greater accuracy: The da Vinci system provides surgeons with greater control over their movements, which promotes precision and accuracy. The system also provides surgeons with a 3DHD camera so they can view the surgical area with 10x the magnification of what the human eye can see.

  • Reduced risk of infection: Minimally invasive procedures allow for smaller incisions, which avoids cutting through as much tissue. This helps reduce the risk of infection overall.

  • Fewer complications during the procedure: The da Vinci System reduces complications as a result of the procedure being less invasive and more precise.

  • Faster recovery times: Minimally invasive procedures with smaller incisions allow for shorter hospital stays and increased recovery times.

Overall, we see improved patient outcomes when utilizing minimally invasive surgical procedures. Your doctor will discuss your specific needs and determine if robotic surgery is right for you.

Ask your physician if robotic-assisted surgery is
right for you.
