Our general surgeons are changing the surgical experience for patients in Central Georgia through the use of state-of-the art robotic surgery. Thanks to the latest advancements in technology, doctors now have alternatives to traditional open surgery that enables them to provide patients the best of both approaches.
During robotic-assisted surgery, the general surgeon is in 100 percent control of the robotic surgical system. The surgeon’s hands control the movement and placement of the instruments. The robotic “arm and wrist” movements mimic those of the surgeon’s hand to enable the surgeon to follow the same steps as traditional surgery. Specifically, our surgeons utilize da Vinci® robotic surgery systems to provide the best surgical experience.
Benefits of robotic surgery
Compared with traditional surgery, the benefits of robotic-assisted surgery include:
- Smaller incisions with minimal scarring
- Less trauma to the patient, including less pain
- Shorter hospital stay
- Decreased use of pain medication
- Less bleeding
- Decreased risk of infection
