Robotic Surgery Q & A

What is robotic-assisted surgery?

The robotic-assisted surgical system uses advanced computer technology and highly precise robotic arms to assist your surgeon during minimally invasive operative procedures.

The arms are controlled by your surgeon throughout the procedure, who sits at a nearby console and monitors the inner operative site via high-definition digital images. The images are transmitted in real-time to a monitor that provides very clear and accurate 3-D images of the surgical field.

The robotic arms, equipped with surgical instruments and a camera, are inserted via several small, 2-inch incisions. This eliminates the need for the long incision required for traditional “open” surgery and reduces physical trauma to the targeted area and nearby tissue structures.

What are the benefits of robotic-assisted surgery?

Since robotic-assisted surgery uses minimally invasive techniques to target and address the surgical field, benefits can include:

  • Less pain after the surgery
  • Decreased blood loss during surgery
  • Shorter recovery time and faster healing
  • Quicker return to work and normal daily activities compared to open surgery
  • Smaller and less visible scars
  • Decreased risk of post-surgical infection

Also, the design of the surgical instruments used in robotic-assisted surgery offers better maneuverability than other minimally invasive systems and can outperform the human hand when it comes to range of motion. This provides for the precision that’s necessary to perform the many delicate movements required in operative procedures. It also helps reduce physical trauma to the surgical site and surrounding area, which lessens post-surgical pain and decreases blood loss during the procedure.

The high-definition, 3D imaging of the surgical field provides a clearer and more detailed view of the operative site when compared to other less invasive systems. In many cases, the benefits of robotic-assisted surgery offer better clinical outcomes than other surgical methods.

What procedures can be performed with robotic-assisted surgery?   

The surgeons at Chicago Surgical Clinic have the training, certification, and experience necessary to perform numerous robotic-assisted surgeries. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Hiatal hernia repair and/or treatment for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • Colon resection to address cancerous growths and other abnormalities
  • Abdominal hernia repair
