Surgery has a bit of a bad reputation. People tend to think of the more extreme surgical procedures where someone’s life is on the line and/or months of recovery are needed afterwards. The truth is, surgery is a very common part of life, and much of it is fairly mundane.
Thanks to technology advances and modern medical practices, most operations are quick and completely safe, allowing you to get back to your life shortly after.
One of the biggest breakthroughs in surgery over the past few decades has been the incorporation of robotics.
Robotic surgery is an advanced form of laparoscopic surgery that is minimally invasive and incredibly precise. Like laparoscopic surgery, robotic surgery avoids the pain, exposure, and scaring typically involved with open surgery.
That means less discomfort, recovery time, and risk.
Robotic surgery takes laparoscopy further, allowing surgeons to perform actions that even the most skilled human hands are incapable of doing. Rather than working directly on your body, a trained doctor operates the system which translates their actions into precise movements that would otherwise be impossible.
When the operation is completed, minimal recovery time is needed thanks to precision of the robotic system.
Robotic Surgery for Urology Needs
At Urology Specialists of Ohio, we utilize the da Vinci Surgical System, a robotic medical system that’s been used for hundreds of thousands of procedures across the world. This system can be used for kidney surgery, prostate surgery, pelvic prolapse surgery, incontinence, and more.
The da Vinci Surgical System is designed to provide surgeons with enhanced capabilities, including high-definition 3D vision and a magnified view. With this system, our doctors are able to see more than they otherwise could. They’re also able to move in ways they otherwise couldn’t.
A lot of people hope to avoid surgery, and often, there are alternative methods of treatment. But sometimes, surgery is the best solution. When that’s the case, robotic surgery is a great option to have available.
Our Robotic Surgeon is Dr. Ananth Annamraju, also known as Dr. AJ. Dr. AJ is a Master Surgeon for Robotics and also a Center of Excellence for Robotic Surgery. For urology in Dayton, Ohio and the greater Miami Valley area, contact Urology Specialists of Ohio today. We’ll can help you understand the options available for your needs and offer the most advanced forms of treatment.
