When a surgeon’s skilled hand meets robotic precision the results are astonishing.
Robotic surgery is the next generation of minimally invasive surgery which utilizes a high-level computer system to dramatically enhance visualization, precision, control and dexterity during surgery. In a robotic procedure, a computer is positioned between the surgeon’s hands and the tips of micro-instruments, giving surgeons the control, range of motion and 3-D visualization characteristic of open surgery.
As a minimally invasive alternative to traditional surgery, the techniques allow robotic surgeons at Saint Barnabas Medical Center to operate through infinitely smaller incisions, resulting in:
- significantly less pain
- fewer side effects
- less scarring
- a shorter hospital stay and recovery period
- quicker return to normal activities
In response to the significant increase in the number of surgical patients benefiting from advanced robotic technoloy, Saint Barnabas Medical Center utilizes The da Vinci S HD Surgical System – the latest version of the robot which integrates 3D HD endoscopy and state-of-the-art robotic technology to virtually extend the surgeon’s eyes and hands into the surgical field.
