What you need to know
Riverview Medical Center’s robotics program has recently achieved a significant milestone – performing more than 2,000 robotically assisted surgeries.
Robotically-assisted surgery entails the use of a surgical robot to facilitate the performance of complex operations without the need for a large incision. By combining robotics and state-of-the-art computer technology, surgeons can operate with greater dexterity and controls than with traditional surgical approaches.
The medical center’s physicians utilize the da Vinci® Xi and Si Surgical Systems, which allow for small incisions typically associated with traditional laparoscopic surgery, but with improved visualization and range of motion.
Robotically-assisted surgery may be a good option for the treatment of a wide-variety of colorectal, general, gynecologic and urologic conditions that previously required open surgery. Some common procedures include gallbladder removal, hernias, and pelvic reconstructive surgery to name a few.
In addition to the da Vinci robots, Riverview Medical Center also offers the Mako System, a robotic-arm that allows surgeons to personalize the surgical experience, tailoring it to patients’ needs and anatomy. The Mako system is used for partial and total knee replacement surgeries.
