Minimally invasive surgical options to speed your healing
Minimally invasive surgical techniques use smaller incisions, have less post-operative pain and result in quicker healing. If your surgical procedure can be done using a minimally-invasive approach, robotic-assisted surgery may be an option.
Robotic computer-assisted surgery
With robotic-assisted surgery, the surgeon is able to operate through just a few small incisions. We use the da Vinci® robotic surgical system which gives your surgeon enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.
With this system, the surgeon operates from a seated position at a console with eyes and hands in line with the instruments. A powerful, magnified 3D high-definition vision system gives the surgeon better vision - including areas that may be difficult to see with the naked eye. The da Vinci technology translates your surgeon's hand movements into smaller, precise movements with instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand.
Your surgeon is in 100% control throughout the operation. More than 3 million people have benefited from this type of surgery worldwide.
Why is robotic-assisted surgery important?
Using this technology you will have smaller incisions, which mean less pain and quicker healing. There is less blood loss, lower risk of infection and less scaring. Your recovery time is faster and hospital stay shorter than with traditional open surgery.
With the improved vision the robotic-assisted surgery provides, your surgeon is able to more precisely target cancer, and spare healthy tissue.
