Sharp uses minimally invasive robotic surgery to treat gynecologic, heart and kidney conditions; hysterectomy; oral cancer; and more.
Sharp HealthCare is proud to offer patients a safe and less-invasive alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy for robotic prostate, gynecologic, kidney, gallbladder, transoral and heart surgeries.
Minimally invasive robotic surgery is computer-assisted surgery that uses state-of-the-art technology to allow the surgeon's hand movements to translate into extremely precise movements within the operative site. The magnified, three-dimensional view and small, robotic instruments enhance the surgeon's ability to perform complex procedures through small incisions. The benefits of robotic surgery include faster recovery and return to normal activities, less pain, less scarring and a shorter hospital stay.
