Is Robotic-Assisted Surgery Right for You?

Adventist Health Portland can help you decide

Robotic-assisted surgery is an option that wasn't even possible just a few years ago. Now, it's happening weekly at Adventist Health. Thanks to the latest evolution in surgical technology, physicians now have an effective alternative to traditional open surgery and laparoscopy that allows them to provide patients with the best of both approaches. With the assistance of the da Vinci Surgical System, surgeons can now operate using only 1-2 centimeter incisions yet with greater precision and control than ever before. Robotic-assisted surgery can help surgeons minimize the pain and risk associated with surgery while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.

To find out if robotic-assisted surgery is a good choice for you, talk to your surgeon, urologist, gynecologist or gynecologic oncologist.
