3 Ways Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgery Has Had a Beneficial Impact on Medical Procedures

Having a surgery is a big deal. It can be quite stressful planning for a procedure, and you might be overwhelmed by trying to understand your options. You may worry about how painful it will be, wonder what the risks are, and want to understand how long it will take you to heal afterward. We know that you want to put your trust in a highly skilled doctor who will make you feel at ease, knowing that you are in good hands.

Dr. Darin Swainston is a top gynecological and obstetric surgeon who has honed his expertise in robotic surgery over the past 20 years. He enhances his surgical skills by using state-of-the-art tools to provide you with the best surgical experience available today. Minimally invasive robotic surgery minimizes risks and allows for faster healing after the surgery.

What types of robotic surgeries do we offer?

Dr. Swainston offers a number of surgeries using the minimally invasive robotic technology, including:

How does robotic surgery work?

Robotic surgery uses the latest technology to provide you with the highest quality precision surgical experience. It combines computers with robotics to further improve upon the surgeon’s skills. Dr. Swainston completes the surgery by using a surgical robot arm that is fitted with cameras that he controls via a computer console by the patient’s bedside. The robot’s cameras greatly magnify the incision sites, allowing Dr. Swainston to see them in great detail. This allows him to make the smallest incisions necessary to complete the surgery.  

What are the benefits of robotic surgery?

The computer-controlled robotic surgery that Dr. Swainston performs is precise, resulting in the smallest incisions possible. This has significant benefits for you during the surgery. First of all, the risks are much lower than those from a traditional surgery, including a much lower chance of infections, reduction of blood loss, and lower risk of blood clots and pneumonia.

Robotic surgery also has benefits for your recovery period after the surgery. Because the incisions are as small as they can be, you will experience less pain with this type of surgery. In addition, you will also have a much quicker recovery, and your scars will be smaller than they would be using traditional surgical techniques.

Minimally invasive robotic surgery is the best option for a precision surgical experience that minimizes risks for you and allows you to heal more quickly.
