Robotic Surgery at SGNT

Robotic systems may be utilized to improve on the methods used in minimally-invasive surgery. By means of robotic surgery, invasiveness is further minimized. When surgeons employ robotic surgery, which also an option at the Surgical Group of North Texas, they are able to achieve greater levels of precision and visualization when operating on a patient. Robotic systems allow surgeons to see the patient’s organs in three dimensions. Mechanical arms, controlled precisely by specially-designed computer software, replace hand movements. Robotic surgery provides for greater precision, smaller incisions, and improved recovery times post surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are the benefits of robotic surgery?
  • Can I trust the safety of the Robot?
  • Will I pay more for a robotic procedure?
What are the benefits of robotic surgery?

In simplest terms, the Robotic platform is a very elaborate tool designed to allow surgeons to accomplish the complex surgical tasks and motions that they are used to doing through large open incisions with multiple tiny, 5-8mm sized incisions. This combination of dexterity and minimally invasive techniques combine to a result of accomplishing more tasks for the patient with less pain and quicker recovery.

Can I trust the safety of the Robot?

The robot is a tool that we use. It is 100% controlled by your surgeon at all times. It has many safeguards to make sure that the surgeon is in control continuously. So the salient question is, do I trust my surgeon? We do everything in our power to earn your trust and we feel that the Robotic platform aids us in that pursuit.

Will I pay more for a robotic procedure?

In a word, No. There is no added billing attached to use of the robot by either your surgeon or your OR. In many cases, the shortened hospital stay, recovery, and lessened pain leads to lower overall cost. While this can’t be guaranteed in every case, we can state that there is no up-charge related to the robot.
