Thanks to significant advancements in robotic technology, surgeons at Aventura Hospital and Medical Center now have several precision options available in performing routine and complex procedures.
Why do surgeons increasingly rely on our leading-edge robotic solutions? In addition to helping increase surgical accuracy and lowering complication rates, studies show that physician-directed robotic surgery can result in reduced postoperative pain and aid in faster recoveries, allowing patients to return more rapidly to daily activities, compared to open surgeries.
Robotic and minimally invasive surgery gives surgeons a new level of precision and control in conducting surgeries that include:
- Head and neck
- Knees and other joints
- Spine (e.g., scoliosis, degenerative disc disease, herniated disc, kyphosis and spondylolisthesis)
Better Precision. Smaller Incision.
A major feature of these robotic surgical systems is that they all offer technology that allows a surgeon’s hand motions to be translated into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments. One of these tools is a laparoscope — a small tube with a tiny camera and light at the end that allows surgeons to track all movements through a video monitor.
And much like we rely on GPS to help us get to a destination, robotic-assisted capabilities map out precise positioning for the procedure, according to each person’s unique anatomy.
