Robotic Surgery – FirstHealth

§ May 7th, 2016 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on Robotic Surgery – FirstHealth

The robotic surgical system gives surgeons an alternative to traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy by putting a surgeons hands at the controls of a state-of-the-art robotic system that gives them unmatched precision, even in the most complex and delicate procedures.

The system cannot be programmed or make decisions on its own. Every surgical maneuver is performed with direct input from the surgeon.

Robot-assisted surgery is one of the most effective, least invasive surgical treatments available. With the assistance of the robotic surgical system, surgeons can operate using only 1 or 2 centimeter incisions, while maintaining greater precision and control than ever before.

If your physician recommends surgery as part of treatment, ask if you are a candidate for a minimally invasive approach like robotic surgery.

Benefits of robotic surgery may include:
