Q. Does the robot perform the surgery by itself?
A. No. The robot acts as an extension of the surgeon’s hands, letting them control every precise movement.
Q. Why is robotic-assisted surgery better?
A. The robotic arms enable the surgeon to move instruments in ways that human hands can’t and reach into smaller places. The system also provides a 3D viewing system that allows the surgeon to see more.
Q. What advantages does robotic-assisted surgery provide?
A. Smaller incisions, pinpoint precision, faster recoveries, lower infection rates, less blood loss and scarring and shorter hospital stays.
Q. What surgeries are performed with robotic-assisted equipment?
A. Genesis has demonstrated success performing several types of robotic-assisted surgeries. The most common include cholecystectomy, colon resections, inguinal hernia repairs, hysterectomy and ventral/incisional hernias. If you need surgery, talk to your doctor to learn if robotic-assisted surgery is an option for you.
