What is Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgery?

Robotic surgery allows specially trained surgeons to perform minimally invasive procedures with advanced technology. During robotic-assisted surgery, a surgeon controls instruments with mechanical arms from a console inside the operating room, providing the surgeon with a high-definition, 3-D view of the surgical site. This approach is designed to offer surgeons greater precision, flexibility and control.

What are some of the benefits? 

During minimally invasive robotic surgery, surgeons can perform even the most complex and delicate procedures by making small, intricate incisions, offering many benefits to the patient, which may include:

  • Less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter recovery time
  • Quicker return to normal daily activities
  • Positive clinical outcomes

What Procedures Can Be Performed?

Broward Health hospitals offer minimally invasive robotic surgery. Your physician can help determine which type of minimally invasive or conventional open surgery is best for you. Robotic technology is used for several types of surgeries, including:

  • Cardiac
  • Colorectal
  • General
  • Gynecologic
  • Urologic

If you are considering surgery, consult with your surgeon to determine your needs and whether you may be a candidate for robotic surgery.
