Robotic Surgery Q&A

What is robotic surgery?

Robotic surgery is the most state-of-art form of minimally invasive surgery available. This procedure uses miniaturized surgical tools to fit through strategically placed incisions. These instruments are linked to robotic arms, which allow your surgeon to have a broader range of motion and more precision.

One of the arms has a magnified high-definition camera, which allows your surgeon to visualize your internal structures while watching a monitor. They make repairs and remove tissues by manipulating the robotic arms. At the end of your robotic surgery, you just need surgical glue or a few sutures to close your incisions.

Why do I need robotic surgery?

The urologists at Spokane Urology often prefer robotic surgery because it has many benefits over traditional surgery. Robotic surgery results in:

  • Robotic-assisted laparoscopic partial nephrectomy
  • Nerve-sparing prostatectomy with lymph node dissection
  • Cystectomy with urinary diversion
  • Ureteral surgery
  • Adrenalectomy
  • Pyeloplasty

Robotic surgery is also sometimes necessary for biopsies and removal of abnormal growths.

What are the benefits of a robotic surgery?

The urologists at Spokane Urology often prefer robotic surgery because it has so many benefits. Robotic surgery results in:

  • Little to zero scarring
  • Lower risk of infection
  • Reduced post-operative discomfort
  • Lower risk of surgical errors or bleeding

And of course of one of the most well-known benefits of robotic surgery from Spokane Urology is faster recovery time.

Is the recovery time shorter after a robotic surgery?

Yes! Because you only need a few small incisions for robotic procedures, your surgeon doesn’t have to disrupt as many tissues, including the muscles and connective tissues. This means that you’re probably going to heal faster than you would with traditional open surgery.

Even though your robotic surgery from Spokane Urology is likely going to help you get back to work and your daily activities sooner, it’s important to remember that you’re still having surgery, and you need to rest. Your doctor gives you detailed post-operative instructions to follow to ensure you have a safe, fast, and effective recovery.
