Minimally Invasive Robotic Technologies Are Easy and Effective
There’s often a stigma from women when it comes to robotics. They often drum up nightmarish images of metallic arms and gadgets wheeling around the surgery bed. Like something out of a comic book, or super hero movie, many women are terrified robotic surgeries will feel more like a battle with a robot bad guy.
Well, we’re here to bring a little comfort. First of all, there’s a person involved. So, that makes things a little less scary.
Also, that person is a fully competent surgeon. A surgeon who has precise, and incredibly useful technological tools at his or her disposal. The new surgery technology available at Panhandle OBGYN, powered by robotics, provides the best-ever surgery experience; and one we think will surprise you with how easy the experience can be.
The Patient Cart
The Patient Cart is the robot we’re referring to when we say robotics technology. This cart is a machine that’s handled with extreme precision by the surgeon who sits at the console. Every movement during the surgery is precise and limited to the exact instructions given by the surgeon involved. This provides the surgeon with incredible accuracy and precision during each movement of the operation. In short, the robot provides an overall superior surgery execution than what was previously possible.
There are two cameras on the patient cart. This provides an amazing 3D view of the surgery, providing a better view for the surgeon. This is far superior to traditional surgery screens that are more like your television at home. This 3D view provides enhanced visualization, and magnification for a better surgery experience.
The Robotic Difference
With more women as professionals and even bread winners for their household, it’s difficult to imagine being out of work for 6-8 weeks. And that’s the case with most major surgeries of the kind which we substitute robotics. Since the robot has been used at Panhandle OBGYN, Dr. May estimate 90% of patients stay one night and can go home the next day, and can get back to work in 2-3 weeks!
Outcomes are better, and the recovery time is far less. Watch the video to learn more.
