What is robotic surgery

Robotic surgery offers a minimally invasive approach with several technical advantages for the surgeon, including enhanced visualisation through magnification.

With the da Vinci System, surgeons operate through a few small incisions instead of a large open incision - similar to traditional laparoscopy. The da Vinci System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and special wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. As a result, da Vinci enables your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.

State-of-the-art da Vinci uses the latest in surgical and robotics technologies and is beneficial for performing complex and delicate surgery. Your surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci System, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body. da Vinci – taking surgery beyond the limits of the human hand.

At Greenslopes Private Hospital our team of surgeons and their robotic surgery makes for an intuitive approach with superior precision. 

This superior minimally invasive surgical option offers a number of benefits including shorter stay in hospital, less pain, less risk of infection and a faster recovery.
