Robotic Surgery Q & A
The term robotic surgery might spark images of boxy silver robots with surgical instruments poised over a wary patient. In reality, robotic surgery is a way for your surgeon to perform complicated procedure with small incisions. It is a form of advanced minimally invasive surgery. In other words, surgery without the old fashioned large scars or long, sometimes painfull healing times.
Robotic surgery allows the surgeon to conduct operations using a high-definition, 3 dimensional view inside a patient, while precisely moving two or three instruments at a time.
A robotic arm is equipped with a fiberoptic camera, and surgical instruments are used by Dr. Candela or Dr. Schreier to .perform and complete the indicated procedure.
Magnification of the surgical field allows for better visualization of the important aspects of a specific operation. These can be detailed in depth at your consultation with Dr. Candela or Dr. Schreier

- Less blood loss
- Lower risk of certaincomplications
- Faster recovery time

There are always risks associated with any surgical procedure, and these will be outlined at your consultation appointment.
