Robotic Surgical Technology, is a rapidly growing field that enhances a surgeon’s ability to perform minimally invasive surgery. Dr N has incorporated this technology into her surgical repertoire to keep pace with this rapidly growing field. It allows patients to avoid large incisions, long hospital stay and return to normal functioning sooner. This amazing technology allows anatomic angles and views never seen through traditional laparoscopic surgery. It allows for small incisions yet complex procedures due to the enhanced computerized, precision. Dr N points out “I can see the anatomy so much better” which allows for superior vision, precision, dexterity and control. She points out that “I am doing the surgery” but the technology enhances her techniques and choices and the patients go home the same day and back to work soon because the tissue disruption is so minimal. They have great pain control, less blood loss, quicker return to normal activities and work. While it is not a technology that everyone needs, it is an amazing asset to a surgeon’s skill set. It requires special training and certification. “ I think it is important that your surgeon have all the choices available that technology has to offer, if not they should refer.” says Dr N.
Dr N uses Robotic assisted technology to assist hysterectomies, treat endometriosis, remove ovarian growths or remove fibroids where patients want to preserve the uterus. She carries out these surgeries at Legacy Meridian Park Hospital.
