Robotic Surgery

Robotic surgery and computer-assisted surgery are procedures that use robotic systems to aid surgeons when performing operations. Robotic surgery often means a shorter recovery time and smaller incisions.

Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgery

Robotic surgery offers the potential for you to experience less pain and bleeding, fewer complications and a faster recovery time. At Resolute, our surgeons are highly experienced in the art of robotic surgery so you can trust you’re in good hands. We offer robotic surgery for the heart, gallbladder, Hernia, colorectal conditions, prostate, gynecological procedures and more.

Potential Benefits of Robotic-Assisted Surgery

Our robotic, minimally invasive technology is beneficial in that it can reduce the use of and exposure to radiation and fluoroscopy, enhancing safety. This technology offers greater accuracy than traditional open surgery and is able to make smaller incisions while helping to reduce risks and recovery time to get you back to your daily routine, faster. This technology allows the surgeon to plan placement of spine hardware prior to surgery, minimizing human error and potentially improving your outcome.

For qualified candidates, robotic-assisted surgery offers numerous potential benefits over the traditional open surgery, including:

  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less pain
  • Less risk of infection
  • Less blood loss and transfusions
  • Less scarring
  • Faster recovery
  • Quicker return to normal activities

Procedures offered at Resolute Baptist Hospital

During robotic surgery, your surgeon will guide the technology using a 3-D high-definition vision system, special instruments and computer software for enhanced precision and control. Robotic surgery is currently available for use in:

  • Gynecologic surgery
  • Cardiac surgery
  • Urologic surgery
  • Thoracic surgery
  • Head and neck surgery
  • General surgery
  • Hernia surgery
Robotic surgery is generally covered under minimally invasive coverage by most insurance plans. If you’re in need of surgery, talk with your doctor about the risks and benefits of open surgery, traditional laparoscopy and robotic surgery. Your doctor can help you determine which option is right for you.
