Robotic or robot-assisted surgery is growing in popularity because the technology allows 3D viewing of a surgical area and precise control of surgical instruments. Frisco robotic surgery allows your surgeon to make minor incisions, insert tiny instruments, including a 3-D camera, and then use a nearby surgical console to manipulate the apparatus to perform surgery. Therefore, with the technology, a surgeon can easily carry out a complex or delicate surgical procedure without interfering with adjacent delicate nerves and organs.
Other potential benefits of robotic surgery may include no pain relief medication, minimum or no loss of blood, less or no creation of scars, and shorter time for recovering or staying in the hospital. Consequently, an assisted robot can perform the following types of surgeries.
Atrial septal defect surgery
An atrial septal defect refers to a congenital deformity of the heart. If you have the condition, your heart has a hole in its wall (septum), separating the heart’s two upper chambers (atria). The hole size tends to vary from person to person and may eventually close or require surgery.
When you have a heart defect, the oxygenated blood from your left atrium ends up in the right atrium before pumping to your lungs again. As a result, your circulatory system has to work harder.
A robot-assisted surgery in correcting the heart issue involves making tiny cuts or incisions on the right side of your chest. Then, the hand of the surgeon uses endoscopic devices to extract a small pericardial tissue. The pericardium is the fibrous, double-walled sac enclosing your heart.
The extracted tissue helps patch up the septum hole.
Gastric bypass surgery
The weight loss surgical procedure involves the formation of a small sac from your stomach. The rearrangement of the small intestine allows the connection of the upper pouch and the rest of the stomach.
Laparoscopy is the technique primarily used for performing gastric bypass surgeries. The procedure involves making less than five tiny cuts in the stomach, which a surgeon relies on for inserting tools for observation and doing the surgery.
Gastric bypass robotic surgery can involve a surgeon utilizing laparoscopic tools and controlling them using a console to perform the surgery safely.
Hernia repair surgery is about ensuring the tissues that are displaced go back to their correct position. Open repair and laparoscopic surgery are the two main types of hernia surgery.
Robotic surgery is a relatively new technique in the correction of hernias. Robot-assisted surgery relies on laparoscopic tools or instruments.
The surgeon makes small incisions in the area with the issue, and a tiny camera projects the image on a screen. Then, your surgeon performs the surgery by manipulating a console.
Robotic surgery is excellent for repairing hernias, unlike laparoscopic surgery, because it can sew tissues, and you will have minor scars and discomfort after the procedure.
Removal of gallbladder
The procedure often removes the solid pieces (gallstones) that form in this organ, storing bile from your liver. Gallstones are a byproduct of bile. After removing your gallbladder, you need to make a few changes to your diet.
