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.
Advanced visualization to help the surgeon
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. This provides excellent visualization to better control the instruments in the abdominal cavity and a broader range of motion at the instrument tip than is possible with traditional laparoscopy. Robotic-assisted surgery allows a surgeon to perform the same quality of operation as traditional, open surgery through smaller incisions, typically with less pain, less bleeding and a faster recovery.
Vista proudly offers this advanced treatment option to patients close to home with robotic capabilities that give our doctors and nurses a high-tech helping hand.
The following Vista surgeons are certified to perform robotic surgery:
