Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgery

Henderson Hospital offers minimally invasive robotic surgery using three different types of robotic systems: the da Vinci® Xi™ Robotic Surgical System, Mako SmartRobotics™ and the Mazor X Stealth™ Edition Robotic Guidance Platform. Surgeons at Henderson Hospital use these systems to perform a wide range of surgeries, including:

  • Gallbladder surgery
  • Gynecological surgery
  • Kidney surgery
  • Urological surgery

Advances in Robotic Surgery

In this video, Sam Kaufman, CEO of Henderson Hospital, and Dr. Kevin Sharif, orthopedic spine surgeon, discuss the latest robotic technology being used at Henderson Hospital.

Benefits of Robotic Surgery

Robotic surgery uses minimally invasive techniques that can offer many benefits 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

Types of Robotic Surgical Systems

The da Vinci® Xi™ Robotic Surgical System

A surgeon using the da Vinci robot to assist with a procedureThe 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.

Surgeons use the da Vinci system to perform general surgery, bariatric weight-loss surgery and gynecological surgery.

The Mazor X Stealth™ Edition Robotic Guidance Platform

For spine surgery, the Mazor X Stealth™ Edition Robotic Guidance Platform – which combines pre-operative planning tools and analytics with intra-operative guidance – gives surgeons advanced spinal surgery options. As spinal surgery has evolved, more focus has been placed on minimally invasive techniques, and this is where the Mazor X Stealth Edition Platform can deliver its greatest technological benefits.

In this video, Dr. Kevin Sharif discusses the benefits of using the Mazor X Stealth platform for spine surgery.

Mako SmartRobotics™

We also use Mako SmartRobotics™ to perform hip and knee replacements. Mako SmartRobotics is an innovative solution for many people suffering from painful arthritis of the knee or hip. Mako uses 3D CT-based planning software so your surgeon can know more about your anatomy to create a personalized joint replacement surgical plan.

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.
