Robotic surgery is a newer technology and technique to perform laparoscopic surgery. This minimally invasive method provides better monitoring through the use of small cameras. This in turn helps us realize better patient outcomes with shorter hospital stays and minimized surgical risks.
Robotic surgery is a specialized minimally invasive surgical technique. It's performed through smaller incisions called ports, through which tubes called trocars are placed. Through these tubes instruments as well as a camera are utilized to visualize the surgical site. Robotic surgery allows for better visualization and more precise surgery compared to other minimally invasive surgical techniques. This translates to shorter hospital time and decreased inherent risks of surgery.
When patients first hear about robotic surgery they say, "I don't want to be operated on by a machine." But the surgeon controls every movement of the operation while sitting at a console. I've dedicated a significant portion of my time to mastering advanced robotic surgical techniques. I was the first surgeon on Long Island from Colon and Rectal Surgical Procedures utilizing the new advanced robotic XI system. With robotic surgery there is improved accuracy, dexterity, and control which leads to precise surgical procedures, shorter hospitalizations, less pain, less scarring, and quicker time to recover.
