Robotic Surgery

Experience a faster, less-painful recovery with robotic surgery.

At the Surgeons Group of Baton Rouge we are not only highly skilled in the field of robotic surgery, we actually train other surgeons throughout the country in robotics as well. And through Our Lady of the Lake, we have access to the da Vinci Xi Surgical System – the most advanced technology for robotic-assisted surgery available.

What is Robotic Surgery?

Robotic surgery uses advanced, computerized technology that enhance your surgeon’s skill and precision to provide a high-tech, minimally invasive surgical experience. The benefits to you, our patient, with this advanced approach include:

  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Less pain
  • Less risk of infection
  • Less scarring
    Less blood loss and transfusions
  • Faster recovery time and return to normal activity

This advanced form of minimally invasive surgery allows our surgeons to perform complex procedures with more precision, flexibility and control compared to traditional techniques. The robotic surgical system includes a camera arm and mechanical arms with surgical instruments. The surgeon controls the arms while seated at a computer console near the operating table. The console gives the surgeon a 3D HD view of the surgical site, while the robot’s “hands” become an extension of your surgeon’s hands and fingers, providing an extremely high degree of accuracy that would not otherwise be achievable. This allows your surgeon to operate in a very tight space, with smaller incisions, disturbing less tissue and causing less bleeding.
