The da Vinci Xi provides an innovative and safe option for patients who require surgery as a treatment option.
The goal of every surgeon is to provide the best medical care with the least amount of complications. But any procedure that requires cutting into the body comes with inherent risks. Traditional (open) surgery can increase one’s risk of blood loss and infection. Nowadays, surgeons are increasingly opting for more innovative surgical
procedures such as robotic surgery. Robotic surgery provides doctors with a minimally invasive option that is safer for patients.
Why Traditional Surgery Can Be Risky
Traditional surgery can require deep incisions in the abdomen. Even with the most skilled surgeons there are inherent risks to traditional surgery because it is invasive. Traditional surgery is generally safe for patients who are healthy, but elderly patients and patients who are overweight or otherwise unhealthy may be at a greater risk for complications. There is also a greater risk of blood loss and infection in the incision site with traditional surgeries that require deep cuts.
What Is The Da Vinci Xi?
The da Vinci Xi is the latest advancement in robotic surgical technologies that surgeons are using in lieu of traditional surgery. The da Vinci Xi allows surgeons to manipulate robotic tools to make much more precise cuts. Making small incisions in the skin, the surgeon utilizes the da Vinci Xi ‘s specialized tools to operate within the abdomen. Because the tools used are small, surgeons can remove afflicted tissue and organs with minimal blood loss. Because robotic surgery requires smaller incisions, there will be minimal scarring as the body heals.
The Benefits of Robotic Surgery
Robotic surgery provides treatment options for patients who may be too weak for traditional surgery. Patients whose bodies have been weakened by cancer treatment can benefit from the decreased blood loss and bodily trauma that robotic surgery provides. As such, patients who receive robotic surgery will have a quicker recovery time. With smaller incisions and more exact cuts within the body, patients will not need lengthy post-operative care. They may not need post-surgery tubing to drain fluids either. Patients with lowered recovery times will be able to leave the hospital sooner, have less pain overall, and be able to return to everyday life quicker.
