What are the benefits of robotic surgery?
Advanced robotic systems give doctors greater control and vision during surgery. Using a three-dimensional plan, your surgeon has full control of the robotic movements and the surgical team is by your side at all times. With this precision, robotic-assisted surgery can result in:
- Smaller incisions
- Less pain and scarring
- Lower risk of infection
- Reduced blood loss
- Faster recovery and return to the daily life you enjoy
Is robotic surgery an option for ear, nose and throat (ENT) surgery procedures?
At Sharp Coronado, our ENT surgeons are assisted by the:
StealthStation™ S8 surgical navigation system
Designed for surgeries in areas with rigid anatomical structure, like the skull, the StealthStation System gives the surgeon better visualization of hard to reach areas. Layering 2D and 3D views, your doctor can create a precise model that serves as a step-by-step surgical plan, customized to your anatomy.
Is robotic surgery an option for general surgery procedures?
At Sharp Coronado, our skilled general surgeons have access to the:
da Vinci® X and Xi robotic surgical systems
Optimized for certain types of surgeries — including gallbladder, abdominal, laparoscopic and hernia repair - the da Vinci systems use very small incisions where a tiny camera and surgical instruments are placed. The robotic arms replicate the movements of the surgeon's hands, but with a greater range of motion. Find a da Vinci surgeon.
Is robotic surgery an option for joint replacement surgery?
Sharp Coronado is one of two hospitals in San Diego County to offer:
Mako® robotic-arm assisted technology
Available for partial and total knee and hip replacement surgeries, this technology helps your doctor create a personalized surgical plan and allows for precise placement of the implant while preserving more healthy bone, tissue and ligaments. Find a Mako surgeon.
