Robotic Surgery Q&A

What is robotic surgery?

The One Surgical Specialists team has extensive experience with the state-of-the-art da Vinci robotic surgery system. The technology allows your surgeon to use a computer-controlled robot to treat many conditions that can affect your abdominal organs and tissues, including:

  • Colon and rectal cancer
  • Pancreatic disease
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Stomach cancer
  • Achalasia (swallowing disorder)
  • Morbid obesity

Robotic surgery offers many benefits compared to traditional open surgery.

How does robotic surgery work?

The robot-assisted system allows your surgeon to make tiny incisions, allowing space to insert miniature instruments. The instruments have a camera on their end, providing 3D visuals in high definition that are sent to a monitor in the operating room. The da Vinci system gives your surgeon a highly detailed view of the inside of your body.

As your surgeon uses the robotic instruments, they mimic the movement of the human wrist. However, they provide greater rotation and flexibility compared to the human hand. As your surgeon moves the instruments, the surgery is seen on the monitor in real-time.

The One Surgical Specialists team also offers single-incision robotic surgery, requiring only one entry point at your belly button to do the procedure.

During your consultation, your surgeon discusses the expected outcome of your surgery.
