Understanding How Minimally Invasive Robotic-Assisted Surgery Works

Robotic surgery has been available in operating rooms since the 1990s. However, it has increased in use in the last 15 years. This groundbreaking surgical technique combines innovation and precision to revolutionize your care.

Robotic surgery doesn’t involve an independent robot performing your procedure. Instead, your surgeon is in control the entire time. We operate robotic arms from a surgical platform. The “arms” have far more dexterity and use greater precision than a human hand.

At Lakeland Surgical Clinic, PLLC, located in Jackson, Mississippi, we provide robotic-assisted surgery with the state-of-the-art da Vinci Xi® surgical system for a wide range of procedures, including gynecological, urological, cardiac, and general surgery

Here’s what you should know about robotic-assisted surgery and how it can benefit you. 

The basics of robotic surgery

The da Vinci surgical system is the peak of minimally invasive robotic-assisted surgery. This state-of-the-art robotic platform enhances our precision and control. The advanced system features robotic arms with tiny instruments and a high-definition camera. 

Minimally invasive robotic-assisted surgery is versatile and can be used for many procedures. From urological and gynecological operations to colorectal and cardiac surgeries, the robotic platform allows our surgeons to perform a variety of minimally invasive surgeries.

As technology continues to evolve, so does the field of robotic-assisted surgery. Ongoing research and development consistently enhance the capabilities of robotic platforms. At Lakeland Surgical Clinic, PLLC, we stay up-to-date on these advancements to benefit you.

The advantages of robotic surgery

The da Vinci system offers unparalleled dexterity and visualization.

Incredible precision

Rest assured that we are in control of the robotic system during your entire procedure. 

While seated at a console, our specialist manipulates the robotic arms with master controls, translating their hand movements into precise surgical actions within your body. This level of control allows for intricate maneuvers and delicate procedures that were once challenging with traditional, rigid surgical methods.

Robotic surgery is even more precise and flexible than minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery.

Greater visibility

The robotic-assisted surgery system provides three-dimensional and high-definition imaging, offering our surgical team an unparalleled view of the operative field. This enhanced visualization enables our surgeons to navigate complex anatomical structures with greater clarity.

Faster recovery

Unlike traditional open surgeries that require large incisions, minimally invasive robotic-assisted surgery involves small, keyhole-sized incisions. Our surgeon inserts the robotic arms through these incisions. 

Minimally invasive robotic surgery minimizes trauma to surrounding tissues. As a result, you experience reduced scarring, less postoperative pain, and a quicker recovery. You’ll likely have a shorter hospital stay, a reduced infection risk, less blood loss, and a faster return to normal activities.

Minimally invasive robotic-assisted surgery combines human skill and technological precision for optimal patient outcomes. At Lakeland Surgical Clinic, PLLC,  we embrace the advancements of robotic-assisted surgery to provide our patients with cutting-edge, personalized care.
