How Technology in Minimally Invasive Surgery Helps You
Surgery is typically an involved process that leaves people in recovery for months. Today, patients have alternatives to standard methods and may pursue minimally-invasive treatments. Whether you’re undergoing hernia repair or hemorrhoid surgery, you now have most than just one option for receiving the care you need.
At Surgical Associates of Houston, our whole philosophy is focused on reducing the effects of surgery using the latest technology and advanced methods. The advantages of undergoing these modern procedures include safety, rapid treatment, and enhanced healing.
Laparoscopic surgeries allow your doctor to visualize the treatment area. The doctor makes an incision and inserts a small tube with a camera, called an endoscope, to look at the affected organs and tissues. This allows your surgeon to reduce the incisions needed to actually perform the procedure, resulting in shorter operations and improved healing.
Fewer incisions also mean less damage to your body. Even though the reason you needed treatment is resolved, your muscles, tendons, or organs have to repair themselves. Laparoscopic surgeries are safer and significantly reduce the margin of error for your surgeon. During post-operative healing, you will experience less pain, and enjoy life sooner than with traditional methods.
Robotic instruments provide unmatched precision. A surgeon remotely conducts these implements from a control center in the operatory. High-definition, 3-D imaging guides the doctor’s hands and shows him exactly where to perform the treatment.
Robotic technology is always combined with laparoscopic techniques to establish a favorable treatment environment, supporting healing and general well-being following your surgery.
