Robotic Surgery in Frederick, MD

Get Advanced, State-of-the-Art Surgical Care

You’ve just been diagnosed with a condition requiring surgery. Until recently, your options were limited. You could have traditional open surgery with a large cut, or incision. Or you might have a laparoscopic surgery, which uses smaller incisions, but only if you need a simple procedure.

Modern technology lets surgeons perform safer, more effective, and less invasive operations. Thanks to new robotic surgical technologies, there is now another minimally invasive surgery option that might be just right for you.

What Is Minimally Invasive Surgery?

In minimally invasive surgery, your surgeon only uses a small cut and special tools to operate on you. Your doctor can see what they’re doing on a standard video monitor.

These surgeries may result in shorter recovery times, fewer complications, lower hospitalization costs, and less trauma. Although this is a standard for some surgeries, it isn’t often used for more complicated procedures.

What Is Robotic Surgery?

Frederick Health Hospital uses a state-of-the-art surgical system for minimally invasive robotic surgery. Surgeons use a console and high-definition 3-D view to guide surgical tools in real time. This lets surgeons perform delicate procedures with tiny, precise movements.

Benefits of Robotic Surgery

  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Lower pain
  • Smaller risk of infection
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer transfusions
  • Less scarring
  • Faster recovery
  • Quicker return to normal daily activities
  • Better outcomes

None of these benefits can be guaranteed, as surgery is unique to each patient and procedure.

While clinical studies support the effectiveness of minimally invasive robotic surgery, individual results may vary. There are no guarantees of outcome. All surgeries involve the risk of major complications. Before you decide on surgery, discuss treatment options with your doctors. Only your doctor can determine whether robotic surgery is appropriate for your situation.
