Medical technology has advanced to the degree that computer and robotic-assisted surgical procedures are increasingly commonplace in facilities and hospitals around the world. The future is here, literally. One of the most exciting advances in surgical technology today is the da Vinci Robotic Surgery system.
Da Vinci robotic surgical procedures have been available for about five years and the technology successfully utilized in thousands of procedures in facilities around the globe, with clinical publications throughout the world lauding its efficacy and safety. Da Vinci surgery is an option in a variety of medical surgical fields, including:
- General surgery – colorectal cancer or bariatric surgical procedures
- Cardiovascular surgery – robotic coronary artery bypass or mitral valve repair
- Urology – radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer, partial or nephrectomy, kidney stone, and bladder surgical procedures
Robotic surgery enables and surgeons to make extremely precise and controlled movements than traditional open-surgical techniques and procedures. Robotic surgery requires only very small one to two centimeter length incisions rather than the large incisions traditionally required for many basic surgical procedures.
Benefits over traditional surgery can be enjoyed by patients choosing this technology, including:
Reduced risk of infection
- Shorter hospital stays
- Reduced blood loss
- Reduced pain and scarring
- Faster recovery time
World-renowned facilities such as the Florence Nightingale Hospital in Istanbul, Turkey and the Jordan Hospital in Amman, Jordan are just two excellent hospitals equipped with this latest in surgical technology.
