Medical technology has come a long way—so far that we may now use robotic “hands” to assist surgeons during complex and delicate procedures. Robotic surgery includes three arms that allow the surgeon to hold and manipulate high-precision instruments, plus one more arm to hold and position the high-resolution stereo endoscope. The surgeon is seated at a separate console and controls the high precision instruments by viewing the operative site through high resolution, 3-D imaging.
Using a robot to make incisions and a computer screen to magnify the process allows our surgical team to see better, which can also reduce complications. We are proud to offer this treatment option close to home, in your community at Vista Health System, and to give our doctors and nurses a high-tech helping hand.
The following Vista surgeons are certified to perform robotic surgery:
