A Leader in Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgery
Of all the decisions you may face in life, choosing to have surgery is one of the biggest. To ensure the best outcome, choosing the right surgeon and operation for your condition is essential. These days, you may have several choices for the type of surgery you can have. The three major surgical approaches are traditional open surgery, laparoscopic surgery and robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery. It’s important that you talk with your doctor about your surgical options and understand the advantages and disadvantages of each. It’s also important to find out if you are a candidate for minimally invasive or robotic-assisted surgery.
Orlando Health is proud to be a leader in robotic-assisted surgery, offering the benefits of this advanced minimally invasive technology to our patients. Robotic surgery offers surgeons the advantages of minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery with the added benefits of more precise instruments, increased vision, and total control of more aspects of the operation — making it possible to do less invasive surgery in even the most challenging conditions. This results in smaller incisions, less trauma, shorter recovery time and quicker return to normal activities.
The Orlando Health Advanced Robotics Surgery Center brings together top surgeons who perform minimally invasive robotic surgery at hospitals throughout the Orlando Health network of facilities in Central Florida. This select group of surgeons has the experience, quality outcomes and ability to deliver the highest level of surgical care in robotic surgery.
Many of our robotic surgeons are leaders in their field and recognized experts at da Vinci Epicenters of Excellence sites, where medical professionals from around the world come to be trained in robotic surgery. Orlando Health has epicenters in five different specialties which makes it one of the most robust robotic surgical programs in the country. More than 1,700 robotic procedures are performed here annually with eight advanced surgical robots offering the latest technology.
