What is robotic-assisted surgery?

Robotic-assisted surgery is a type of minimally invasive surgery. This technique allows limitation of the size and number of cuts or incisions that a surgeon needs to make.

Advanced robotic-assisted surgery systems can give doctors greater control and vision during surgery, allowing them to perform safe, less invasive, and precise surgical procedures.

During robotic-assisted surgery, surgeons operate from a console equipped with two master controllers that maneuver robotic arms.

While minimally invasive surgery effectively reduces time and gives surgeons greater control, it isn't for everyone. Sometimes traditional open surgery provides surgeons better access to the area to be treated, and sometimes a patient's age, physical condition, and surgical history may necessitate open surgery.

The benefits of minimally invasive robotics surgery

Compared to traditional techniques, robot-assisted surgery is associated with several benefits, including:

  • Reduced post-surgery pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer and smaller scars
  • Increased precision for more accurate joint replacements
  • Faster recovery
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less risk of infection

What are some of the robots that are used?

MAKO is a robotic-arm assisted technology that is an innovative solution for many suffering from painful arthritis of the knee or hip. It uses a 3D virtual model of your unique anatomy and a robotic are, MAKO helps the surgeon plan and perform your joint replacement surgery. The MAKO allows for accurate placement of the hip implant which can reduce the likelihood of hip dislocation. It is more consistent in leg length. It can potentially decrease the need for a shoe lift. And it is a decreased risk of implant and bone abnormally running together.

Your surgeon will determine if you are a good candidate for the MAKO procedure.
