Robotic Surgery

At Northeast Georgia Medical Center, we've helped more than 5,000 patients get back to their lives with the help of robotic surgery, which often leads to a shorter hospital stay, quicker recovery and less pain.

Robotics is a cutting-edge method of performing surgery using only a few small incisions, or keyholes similar to those used in laparoscopic cases, as ports for instruments that allow access to the heart, lungs and abdomen, while at the same time fine-tuning the technical skills of the surgeon. This surgery is performed in a three-dimensional (3D) image compared to the two dimensions of laparoscopic surgery.

The use of the da Vinci Surgical System® for a patient’s procedure rather than an open incision procedure can mean a shorter length of stay for the patient, a quicker return to normal activities, significantly less pain, less complications, less blood loss and less scarring.

Robotic instrumentation works by mimicking the motions and movements of the surgeon’s hands and fingers in a highly magnified 3D environment.

At Northeast Georgia Medical Center, the da Vinci Surgical System is being used for:

The purchase of the da Vinci Surgical System was made possible though an anonymous gift of $1 million to The Medical Center Foundation as a part of their Healthy Journey II campaign.

Like all new technology, robotic surgery is not appropriate for all patients. Depending on the application, there are many factors about the patient and his condition that indicate if he’s a good candidate for robotic surgery; therefore, it’s important to talk with your doctor.
