“It gives us a 3D view and has incredible laparoscopic tools that don’t fog up,” explains Dr. Selander. “It gives us the ability to see the operative field and enables us to be more precise with our movements.”
Because of the system’s precision, there is typically less injury to surrounding tissue and organs, which can result in less bleeding, trauma and pain for the patient.
“The system itself eliminates the natural tremor that comes with being a human,” Dr. Selander says. “Even the steadiest surgeon has a natural tremor. That’s eliminated with the robot. So, it brings your operation and technique up another level in accuracy and precision.”
