Specially trained surgeons use the da Vinci® Si HD robotic surgical system to perform complex and delicate operations through very small surgical openings. Some complex conditions in children are difficult to address via standard minimally invasive surgical procedures because the technology and tools are not suited for a child's small size.
Because robotic surgery involves enhanced imaging technology and equipment with increased flexibility, this type of surgery has allowed children to benefit from minimally invasive procedures the same way adults do.
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
