daVinci Robotic Surgery

Dr. Pagette is a trained and certified robotic surgeon.  She is trained on the da Vinci Robotic system.  It is a state-of-the-art surgical system designed to help surgeons perform complicated surgeries, which were previously only able to be performed with large abdominal incisions.

The potential benefits include:

  • very small incisions
  • significantly less postoperative pain
  • less blood loss and a decreased risk of blood transfusions
  • less scarring
  • shorter recovery time
  • quicker return to most activities

How does robotically-assisted surgery differ for the surgeon?

Surgeons have a distinct advantage of better visualization, as the robot provides a three dimensional view.  The surgeon can also move the surgical instruments with more precision and the surgeon can move his or her wrists 360 degrees.

 

Although the system is called a "robot," the da Vinci Surgical System cannot act on its own.  Instead, every surgical maneuver is performed only under the precise control of a surgeon.
