The surgeons at Physicians Regional Healthcare System perfrom robotic surgery- a minimally invasive approach to surgery that allows surgeons to perform complex surgical procedures through small incisions. For patients, robotic surgery may offer:
Less pain and scarring
Lower risk of infection
Shorter hospital stays
Robotic surgery is similar to laparoscopic techniques, in which small incisions are made near the surgical treatment area. From a console in the operating room, the surgeon remotely manipulates surgical instruments, which are attached to robotic arms, to perform surgery through the incisions. A powerful camera provides magnified, 3-D images to provide clear details of the surgical area. Robotic technology gives surgeons enhanced dexterity, precision and range of motion.
Physicians Regional Healthcare System's surgeons are specially trained on a robotic arm surgical system. Our surgeons can perform a variety of robotic-assisted procedures, including:
- Bariatric surgery
- Colorectal surgery
- General surgery (i.e. hernia repair, etc.)
- Gynecological surgery, including hysterectomy and fibroid surgery (myomectomy)
- Urologic surgery, including prostatectomy and nephrectomy
For adults living with early to mid-stage osteoarthritis, robotic-assisted partial knee replacement provides a minimally invasive option to treat knee pain. Physicians Regional Healthcare System’s orthopedic surgeons use a robotic arm orthopedic system to resurface the diseased portion of the knee, sparing the patient’s healthy bone and surrounding tissue. Robotic-assisted knee replacement can offer patients a more natural knee motion than traditional knee replacement techniques.
