Robotic Surgery

Robotic surgery is increasingly being used in hepatobiliary and gastrointestinal surgeries.  It allows for the surgery to be performed minimally invasively, meaning less pain and a faster recovery for patients.

 

In traditional “open” surgery the surgeon uses a single incision to enter into the abdomen. Robotic surgery uses several 0.5-1cm incisions. Each incision is called a “port.”  The surgeon operates while seated at a surgeon’s console from which he can control the four robotic arms of the robot system while using a high-performance vision system with 3D camera.

 

We use the da Vinci Robot System which is the most developed and safest system available.
