The DaVinci robot is a state of the art piece of equipment that allows Dr. Adams to perform hysterectomies and other laparoscopic procedures with exacting precision. The size and dexterity of the robot let Dr. Adams work within a minimal amount of space; he can perform precise movements, reducing the amount of tissue that’s affected by the procedure.
By using the DaVinci robot, Dr. Adams can perform even the most invasive procedures through small laparoscopic incisions. That allows for less tissue damage and trauma to the body. Smaller incisions also mean a shorter recovery time and much less scarring than with more traditional incisions.
Traditional surgery involves making a wide incision through all layers of your abdomen. These incisions can be anywhere from four to ten inches long depending on the procedure. The recovery time for a conventional surgery is extensive when compared to that of a laparoscopic procedure. The risk of infection is also much greater.
Laparoscopic procedures, on the other hand, are performed through three small incisions that are less than two inches long. With the use of robotics and lasers, Dr. Adams can minimize tissue damage by performing precise, accurate movements. That hastens the healing process, reduces the risk of infection, and also dramatically reduces scarring.
Laparoscopic procedures reduce the amount of trauma to the body as a whole. Small incisions mean much less damage to the tissues and abdominal wall. That also reduces the amount of noticeable scarring after everything has healed. There are other primary benefits, too:
