We are pleased to offer new advancements in minimally invasive surgery to our patients. For patients, minimally invasive procedures can:
- Minimize post-operative pain
- Decrease recovery time
- Decrease blood loss
- Decrease risk of infection
- Result in smaller surgical incisions
We use a minimally invasive system that uses a robotic tool and video system to assist surgeons in the operating room. Carolinas HealthCare System University was the first hospital in north Mecklenburg to offer this technology. The surgical instrumentation improves precision and manipulation in small surgical spaces.
Common robotic system procedures fall under the areas of urology and gynecology, and include:
Consult your physician to determine if your surgery can be performed using minimally invasive techniques, such as a robotic system.
