McLeod surgeons utilize the latest surgical advances and techniques and have access to the finest in technology and surgical equipment. Robotic-assisted surgery is a form of minimally invasive surgery. It allows the surgeon to perform many types of complex procedures with more precision, flexibility and control than is possible with traditional techniques.
Like minimally invasive surgery, robotic-assisted surgery is performed through a few small incisions and provides many benefits to the patient including: less pain, minimal scaring, shorter hospital stay, faster recovery, quicker return to normal activities and less blood loss.
At McLeod, robotic-assisted surgery is performed by McLeod General Surgeons, Orthopedic Surgeons, Thoracic Surgeon, Gynecologists, and Urologists.
The robotic technology provides the surgeon with enhanced access, greater visibility, flexibility and control than possible when performing surgery using traditional techniques.
Let the expert hands of McLeod surgeons guide the robot to improve your health.
Robotic-assisted surgery is a team approach with a designated team of operating room staff specially trained in robotic-assisted surgery. The teams, at both McLeod Regional Medical Center and McLeod Seacoast, are present during every robotic procedure. They work side-by-side with each surgeon to obtain the best outcomes possible for all patients.
The robotic-assisted operating room teams consist of a physician assistant, operating room nurses, and surgical technologist.
