Robotic Surgery: Innovations, and Benefits
Dr. Ceana Nezhat is one of the foremost authorities in Robotic Surgery techniques. Performing the largest series of cases of Endometriosis with the utilization of robotic-assisted laparoscopy, Dr. Nezhat has presented several late-breaking abstracts on the use and techniques of robotic surgery in the Operating Room in order to improve patient outcomes including the use of plasma and laser to the robot in order to increase the overall efficiency of his procedures.
Dr. Nezhat is a leader in teaching his experience and expertise to surgeons regarding Minimally Invasive Surgical (MIS) Techniques and strives to constantly improve the options and overall outcomes by modifying traditional surgical techniques through the advancement of smaller incisions in MIS.
Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) allows physicians to perform many kinds of major surgery with less patient trauma and pain, minimal scarring, faster recovery and shorter hospital stays. Surgeries are performed through small incisions, which replace the large incisions needed for conventional open surgeries.
The use of robotics takes minimally invasive techniques into a new era, further minimizing the impact of surgery on patients. Robotic-assisted laparoscopy represents a third generation of surgery, one which builds upon the advances to open surgery introduced by MIS. Robotic technology takes surgery beyond the limits of the human hand, introducing precise, versatile instrument movement combined with three-dimensional visualization of the operative site.
The daVinci® Si-HD with 3D High Definition (HD) vision is the most advanced platform for robotic-assisted laparoscopy available today. By integrating computer-enhanced technology with the surgeon’s skill, this advanced Surgical System enables Dr. Nezhat to enhance healing and promote well-being by performing minimally invasive surgery in a manner never before experienced.
The Surgical System integrates 3D HD vision and state-of-the-art robotic technology to virtually extend Dr. Nezhat’s eyes and hands into the surgical field. With the world renowned experience of Dr. Nezhat coupled with this advanced, state-of-the-art system, minimally invasive options for complex surgical procedures are a reality for patients suffering from rare and complex disease.
Both Dr. Nezhat and the patient experience greatly improved benefits of robotic surgery, as compared to traditional laparoscopic or open procedures. The revolutionary technology of robotic-assisted laparoscopy provides a minimally invasive approach for the treatment for gynecological procedures. Here are a few reasons why…
Benefits of Robotic Surgery… For the Surgeon
– Magnified 3D visualization for optimum viewing within the operative site
– Increased precision, control and range of motion of micro-instruments
– Tremor filtration
– Improved access to and manipulation of organs, tissues and nerves
Benefits of Minimally Invasive Surgery… For the Patient
– Shorter hospitalization
– Potentially reduced pain
– Faster recovery times
– Smaller incisions, resulting in reduced risk of infection, less blood loss and minimal scarring
– Patients resume normal activities sooner
Hysterectomy Recovery – Less Trauma Means
For many women, a hysterectomy is often associated with feelings of loss and emotional distress. In addition to those listed above, the benefits of robotic surgery translate into quicker physical healing, so patients can focus on emotional healing. At Nezhat Medical Center, we are sensitive to all of these needs, and strive to make every aspect of treatment as positive and successful as possible.
