Benefits of Robotic Surgery

When it comes to complex procedures, robotic-assisted surgery offers several important advantages to both surgeons and patients.

The da Vinci® Surgical System used by Orlando Health gives surgeons the capability to perform many types of complex procedures with more precision, flexibility and control than is possible through conventional surgery.

As with laparoscopic surgery, robotic surgery uses small incisions that result in less trauma 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.

The end result to you, the patient, includes highly precise surgery with less trauma to your body, less risk of complications, and faster healing.

Many of the benefits of robotic surgery have been well-documented. The breadth of literature regarding da Vinci surgery is extensive. More than 10,000 peer-reviewed studies and reports examining the use of the da Vinci Surgical System in various procedures have been published.

Demonstrated benefits of robotic-assisted surgery for patients include:

  • Less pain and scarring
  • Less risk of infection
  • Less blood loss
  • Shortened hospital stay
  • Faster recovery
  • Improved clinical outcomes

When you choose Orlando Health for your procedure, you’re choosing surgeons with unparalleled expertise in robotic surgery who consistently deliver exceptional results.
