Robotic Surgery Q & A

What is robotic surgery?

Robotic surgery is designed to allow doctors to perform complex procedures with enhanced precision. Doctors typically use robotic surgery in combination with minimally-invasive surgery to minimize the trauma to the patient. In most cases, robotic surgical systems include mechanical arms with attached surgical instruments and a camera arm that allows the doctor to visualize the treatment area. The surgeon controls these arms using a computer console near the operating table.

What are the benefits of robotic surgery?

Robotic surgery offers several benefits over traditional open procedures. Robotic surgery allows doctors to perform complex procedures with smaller incisions and better precision. This improves the overall effectiveness of the procedure, and it reduces the risk of complications for the patient. Patients who undergo minimally-invasive robotic surgery also spend less time in the hospital and have a shorter recovery period than those who undergo more invasive procedures. In addition, robotic surgery typically results in smaller scars and less overall trauma to the body.

When is robotic surgery appropriate?

Dr. Patel may recommend robotic surgery for a number of different procedures. However, every patient is different, and some patients may not be good candidates for robotic surgery. Dr. Patel can help patients determine whether robotic surgery is the best choice for them. Dr. Patel will also explain any other surgical options that may be available.

What are the risks of robotic surgery?

Like all surgical procedures, robotic surgery does carry some risks. Patients may experience a bad reaction to anesthesia, excessive bleeding, or infections. Depending on the type of procedure, patients may face other risks as well. However, the risks of robotic surgery tend to be lower than those associated with traditional open surgery.

How long is the recovery after robotic surgery?

The recovery period following robotic surgery will depend on the type of procedure performed, as well as the patient’s condition before the surgery. However, the recovery period following robotic surgery is usually shorter and less difficult than the recovery period after a traditional open procedure due to smaller incisions and reduced surgical trauma. Dr. Patel can tell patients how long their recovery will be before performing the procedure.
