Minimally Invasive Surgery
Many surgical procedures can be done using minimally invasive techniques. This type of surgery may lead to faster healing and less scarring. Using advanced technology, surgeons make small incisions in the body and use video equipment to provide a magnified view of the surgical site. Instruments are used to perform the surgery through the incisions. This can result in smaller scars, less time in the hospital and a faster recovery.
Wellington Regional Medical Center uses the da Vinci® Surgical System, an advanced robotic platform that allows doctors to perform complex procedures using smaller incisions than standard surgery with small tools operated robotically. This may result in less pain, scarring, trauma and blood loss than other surgical procedures so that people can potentially return to work and daily activities more quickly.
Individual results may vary. There are risks associated with any surgical procedure. Talk with your doctor about these risks to find out if robotic surgery is right for you.
