Minimally Invasive & Robotic Surgery
Note: If you are scheduled to have a surgical procedure, your physician will order a COVID-19 test to make sure that you do not have COVID-19 before you have surgery. Learn more: Patient Fact Sheet
Robotic-assisted surgery is minimally invasive and allows specially trained surgeons to perform a wide range of delicate and complex operations through a few small incisions.
Utilizing an advanced robotics computer, this system allows the surgeon to remain 100 percent in control at all times. Each movement of the surgeon's hand is translated into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside the patient's body.
In addition, the robot's 3D-High Definition vision system provides surgeons a highly magnified view, virtually extending their eyes into the patient. These advanced optics allow the surgeon to locate and repair damaged tissue that could otherwise go unseen by the naked eye, providing a detailed assessment of vessels, blood flow and related tissue.
Together, these technologies provide unparalleled precision, dexterity and control for the performance of minimally invasive surgery. IRMC currently offers general and gynecologic robotic surgery to include Hysterectomy, Endometriosis Treatment, Ovarian Mass & Scar Tissue Removal, Sacrocolpopexy, Colorectal, Hernia, Splenectomy, Abdominal Wall Repair, Gallbladder, Acid Reflux Disease and more.
With robotic-assisted surgery, patients can look forward to:
- A shorter hospital stay.
- Less blood loss.
- Fewer complications.
- Less need for narcotic pain medicine.
- Faster recovery.
- Smaller incisions associated with minimal scarring.
