Laparoscopic & Robotic Surgery +
Laparoscopic and robotic surgery are general terms used to describe different techniques when performing minimally invasive surgery. Both forms of minimally invasive surgery use a fiber-optic laparoscope to see inside the abdomen using high definition cameras. This approach allows the surgeon to perform complex abdominal surgery without having to make a large incision. These methods of surgery are often safer and more effective than the old fashion techniques of years ago. Patients tolerate minimally invasive surgery better than they tolerate open surgery and healing is usually much faster. Let Winter Park Surgical Associates and our Board certified surgical team help determine if minimally invasive surgery is right for you.
Robotic surgery is a form of laparoscopic surgery that allows the surgeon to perform difficult procedures easier and more effectively. The robot is usually “docked” at the patient’s bedside in the operating room and the surgeon performs the procedure from a console just a few feet away. Robotic surgery offers many advantages when it comes to accessing difficult to reach parts of the abdomen. It is very useful in prostate surgery, colon surgery and gallbladder surgery. More and more operations are being done robotically each day. Only an experienced Board certified robotic surgeon can determine if robotic surgery is right for you.
Less Pain, Faster Recovery +
Laparoscopic surgery has been continuing to evolve since the late 1980’s when the first laparoscopic gallbladder surgery was performed. Laparoscopic surgery has changed the way surgery is performed both here in the United States and world wide. Laparoscopic hernia repair in the hands of an experienced surgeon results in less pain, better repairs and less down time for patients. Patients get back to work quicker, are able to begin exercise sooner and get on with their lives in just a couple short weeks. Laparoscopic surgery has also improved the way we approach many types of intra-abdominal problems, such as gallbladder surgery, adhesion surgery and colon surgery just to name a few. With Laparoscopic surgery and an experienced laparoscopic surgeon, patients get better faster than ever before.
