Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgery
Henderson Hospital offers minimally invasive robotic surgery using the advanced da Vinci® Xi™ Robotic Surgical System. Surgeons at Henderson Hospital use the da Vinci system to perform a wide range of surgeries, including:
Benefits of Robotic Surgery
Robotic surgery uses minimally invasive techniques that can offer many patients for patients compared to traditional surgery. Potential benefits include:
- Reduced postoperative pain or trauma to the body
- Less blood loss and reduced need for transfusions
- Lower risk of infection or other complications
- Quicker recovery and minimal scarring
- Shorter hospital stays
Advances in Robotic Surgery
Sam Kaufman, CEO of Henderson Hospital, and Dr. Kevin Sharif, orthopedic spine surgeon, discuss the latest robotic technology being used at Henderson Hospital.
The da Vinci System
The da Vinci Surgical System consists of a surgeon's console, a patient-side cart with four interactive robotic arms, a high-performance 3D, high-definition vision system and the system's EndoWrist® instruments. Using advanced robotic technology, the da Vinci System is designed to translate a surgeon's hand movements into precise movements of the EndoWrist instruments.
Candidates for Robotic Surgery
Not all procedures can use the da Vinci system and not all patients are candidates for robotic surgery. Talk to your physician about your surgical options.
Individual results may vary. There are risks associated with any surgical procedure. Talk with your doctor about these risks to find out if robotic surgery is right for you.
