Decoding Robotic-Assisted Surgery

DECODING Robotic-Assisted Surgery Robotic Surgery 101 Minimally invasive 4 interactive robot arms C Surgeon sees 3D image of procedure on console Controlled by surgeon using console da Vinci System 4 Arms, Many Purposes 3 arms used to hold instruments Can also act as: • Scalpel • Scissors • Electrocautery devices/Bovies 4th arm is an endoscopic camera • 2 lenses Stereoscopic vision How Does It Work? L Surgeon uses camera to view treatment area Surgeon uses foot pedals and hand controls to move arms System converts surgeon's movements into micro-movements Instruments perform tasks through very small incisions Why Robotic-Assisted Surgery? Less blood loss/fewer transfusions Improved Less post- surgical pain accuracy Robotic Surgery at MountainView Hospital 1,200 robotic surgeries performed and counting Medical specialties that use robotic surgery: Throat surgery Thoracic (lung) Myomectomy surgery Gallbladder Endometriosis surgery Kidney surgery Hysterectomy Prostatectomy Gynecological surgery Urologic surgery Female Pelvic Floor Colorectal surgery Provided By: LAS VEGAS INSTITUTE for ROBOTIC SURGERY MOUNTAINVIEW oSPITAL Sources:
