We offer robotic-assisted thoracic procedures as an alternative to conventional, open thoracic surgeries. We possess the latest model of the da Vinci Robot Si HDTM with 4 arms and 3D camera for enhanced vision.
The da Vinci Surgical System's binocular robotic camera provides three-dimensional visualization, while the system's robotic arm gives surgeons the access and control they need to successfully perform a number of minimally invasive thoracic surgical procedures. The benefits of robotic surgeries are numerous, and patients avoid the blood loss, pain and scarring that typically corresponds with a traditional thoracic procedure. With the use of the da Vinci® System potentially traumatic thoracic surgical procedures can be performed through one to two cm incisions, without spreading or cutting the breastbone or ribs, thereby minimizing many of the uncomfortable drawbacks of surgery.
Various studies suggest that this minimally invasive approach can greatly reduce recovery time, pain and trauma associated with thoracic surgeries. For most patients, robotic thoracic surgery can offer numerous benefits over open-chest surgeries, including:
