Robotic Assisted Surgery

Robotic Assisted Surgery offers the latest in surgical technology to provide our physicians precision movement to provide our patients the best possible care.

  • Robotic tool that enhances laparoscopic surgery with 3D visualization and 360 degree instrumentation motion
  • Effective and minimally invasive alternative to open and laparoscopic surgeries
  • Allows surgeons to perform even complex surgeries with great precision through very small incisions


Benefits

  • Shorter length of stay
  • Less pain
  • Increased comfort level
  • Less blood loss
  • Less scarring
  • Less risk of infection
  • Faster recovery time

Procedures

Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center physicians currently use robotic assisted surgery to perform general, gynecology, thoracic, and urology surgeries.


Single Site Surgery

Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center utilizes Robotic Assisted Surgery for a variety of surgeries. Single site robotic assisted gallbladder surgery is now performed through a single incision using state-of-the-art precision instruments. Patients who choose single site surgery, after discussion with a surgeon, experience a virtually scarless procedure as the surgery is performed through only one incision in the navel (belly button), which dramatically limits visible scarring. The primary potential benefits include:

  • Minimal scarring
  • Minimal pain
  • Low blood loss
  • Fast recovery
  • Short hospital stay
  • High patient satisfaction

As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed as surgery is unique to each patient and procedure.
