Robotic surgery is a state-of-the-art surgical technique that uses special surgical robots to assist in surgeries that require a high degree of precision or that are very complex. Also called robot-assisted surgery, the robotic device, or arm, does not perform the surgery itself; rather, it's guided by the surgeon to complete specific aspects of the surgery and to achieve superior results where a high degree of accuracy and reproducibility is desired.
Robot-assisted surgery offers benefits for both the surgeon and the patient:
Robotic surgery is used in many areas of medicine, including weight-loss surgery and general surgical procedures. Some of the more common uses include:
Although it has many applications and benefits, it's not always the best choice. A thorough pre-surgical exam can help determine if robotic surgery is the best option for a specific patient.
Robotic surgery uses many of the same techniques as laparoscopic surgery: Several small incisions are made to accommodate the robot and the surgical instruments, and a tiny camera transmits highly detailed 3-D images from inside the surgical site to a monitor where they can be viewed by the surgical team. The doctor uses a computer to guide the robot arm, which mimics the movements of the surgeon to complete the procedure with accuracy and precision. When the procedure is complete, the instruments are removed and the incisions are closed.
