If you or a loved one is preparing to undergo surgery, you owe it to yourself to learn about all of your medical options including traditional, laparoscopic or robotic surgery. Largo Medical Center is proud to offer one of the most effective, least invasive surgical treatments available. The hopsital utilizes a state-of-the-art robotic surgical system, which provides surgeons with an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy, putting a surgeon's hands at the controls of a state-of-the-art robotic platform

This minimally invasive surgical procedure uses high-definition 3D vision, a magnified view and advanced robotic technologies to assist your surgeon to control the robotic surgery system. This procedure translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside the body. With a state-of-the-art robotic surgical system, our surgeons are able to perform some of the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions.

Robotic-assisted surgery is like other minimally invasive surgery, in that instruments and cameras are inserted through small incisions. What is different is that the surgeon sits at a console next to the patient.

Remember surgery is performed 100 percent by our talented surgeons who use the state-of-the-art robotic surgical system.

The surgeon looks into a viewfinder at the three-dimensional, high-quality image sent back by the cameras and works the surgical arms.

The quality of the images and precise movement of the surgical arms essentially puts the surgeon right next to the area in which he or she is operating.

Largo Medical Center utilizes Robotic Surgery in the treatment of the following areas:

There are many potential benefits for patient when comparing the robotic surgical system to traditional, including:

The Robotic Surgical System is an improvement over conventional laparoscopy, in which the surgeon operates while standing and uses hand-held, long-shafted instruments that cannot bend or rotate. With conventional laparoscopy, the surgeon must look up and away from the instruments to a nearby video monitor to see an image of the target anatomy.

The System also extends our surgeons capabilities to provide these significant benefits:
