What is robotic surgery?

Robotic surgery is the way of the future, offering both patients and surgeons alike a wealth of new possibilities for solving complex problems through less complex surgical means.

Robotic surgery is a minimally invasive technique that allows surgeons to use advanced robotic mechanisms to perform complex surgeries with increased precision through several small incisions, as opposed to one, long incision typically used in traditional surgery.

Our robotic surgical system uses a magnified high-definition, 3D camera for optimal visualization. It is supplemented with special surgical tools, allowing your surgeon to bend and rotate instruments farther than the abilities of the human wrist. When combined, these capabilities enable your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.
