With thousands of successful procedures performed at Albany Medical Center, our da Vinci-trained surgeons and team of physicians offer patients a less invasive surgical procedure to treat a wide range of conditions.
In robotic surgery, which is sometimes referred to as robotic assisted surgery, a robotic arm equipped with laparoscopic instruments is manned by a surgeon. The robot helps the surgeon attain the precision and intricacy that he or she might not be able to achieve using their own hands. In addition, magnified computer screens give surgeons a better view of the operation site so that they are more able to avoid coming into contact with other nearby, vital structures, therefore cutting the risk of complications.
