Robotic-Assisted Surgery

Robotic Assisted Surgery

High-Tech Helping Hand

Incorporating technology in the operating room means smaller incisions and potentially faster recovery times. At Virtua, surgeons can bring in a high-tech helper in some cases: a robotic assistant.

During minimally invasive surgery, the doctor inserts surgical instruments and a tiny camera through several small incisions in the body.

When surgeons use robotic assistance in these cases, the high-tech system holds the surgical instruments, which the surgeons move with extremely sensitive hand controls. The robotic assistant can follow a surgeon’s hand movements with better dexterity and flexibility than the human hand and wrist can achieve.

This approach may provide better outcomes for you, such as:

  • A shorter stay in the hospital
  • Less pain and scarring
  • Less blood loss
  • A lower risk of infection
  • A faster recovery
We offer robotic-assisted surgery at Virtua Memorial and Virtua Voorhees. This technology may be an option for surgeries such as: hysterectomy, pelvic floor reconstruction, prostate surgery, and kidney tumor removal.
