Robotic-Assisted Surgery

Smaller Incisions | Better Precision | Faster Recovery

In the same way other advanced technology enhances doctors’ skills, such as MRI and CT, robotic-assisted surgery extends the capabilities of surgeon’s eyes and hands. RAS allows your surgeon to control a camera and surgical instrument while in the operating room. The camera gives your surgeon a crystal-clear view of the ENTIRE operating area and magnifies up to 10x what the human eye can see. The surgical instruments used move similarly to a human hand while having the benefit of being smaller, having a greater range of motion and using built-in tremor-filtration technology for BETTER PRECISION.

This approach to your surgery can offer:

  • Lower complication rates
  • Shorter length of time in surgery
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster recovery
