Dr. Pappas: We are pleased at CRSSNY we got to announce the creation of the Robotic Surgical Institute. Through our affiliation with Mount Sinai Health Network, we have acquired the da Vinci Xi robotic surgical system at Mount Sinai South Nassau Hospital in Oceanside, New York. Dr. Caliendo: The advantage of robotic surgery is that it enables us to do intricate and very fine dissections, which were not able to be done before. Dr. Pappas: Back many years ago, surgery was performed through large incisions. Hospital stays were many days to even weeks. Often colostomies would be required. Dr. Caliendo: With the da Vinci robotic system, we're able to do the entire operation with minimally invasive techniques, sometimes requiring very small if no incision at all. Dr. Pappas: We are seeing things in 3D. This helps us identify delicate structures, small blood vessels, and nerves that simply we could not see before. Dr. Caliendo: Another advantage of the robotic system is that because it is done in such a minimally invasive fashion, your hospital stay is decreased significantly, and you're able to get back to your normal daily function soon. Dr. Pappas: I'm proud to say that the surgeons of CRSSNY have performed more robotic surgical procedures than any other practice on Long Island. It is not simply performing a procedure that is important. It's looking at the entire process that before, during, and after that makes the Robotic Surgical Institute at CRSSNY unique.
