Minimally invasive surgery using robotics is an advanced surgical technique that offers a wide variety of potential benefits for patients. The surgeon uses robotic hands to assist with the procedure, resulting in greater dexterity, precision and accuracy. The robotic hands can do surgical tasks beyond the capabilities of humans using a few small incisions to access the surgical site.

West Boca Medical Center surgeons use the advanced da Vinci® SI™ HD Surgical System, the world’s only robotic surgical system with 3D high definition vision.

What are the benefits of robotic surgery?

Robotic surgery provides our patients with minimally invasive procedures, which means that surgeries can be performed with small incisions rather than large incisions that may cut across large areas of tissue.

With robotic surgery, there is generally less bleeding, pain and risk of infection. Most patients also experience shorter hospital stays and faster recovery. Some studies show improved clinical outcomes for robotic surgery.

Patients who need gynecologic, urogynecologic, and certain general surgeries are excellent candidates for robot-assisted surgery. We also offer our patients SILS single incision laparoscopic surgery.

Potential Benefits May Include:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Less scarring
  • Fewer complications
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Shorter recovery time
  • Faster return to normal daily activities
  • Better clinical outcomes
