Benefits of Robotic Surgery

BenefitsUsing these new, high definition surgical techniques, physicians can now perform surgeries through smaller incisions, which will generally mean:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter hospital stay and recovery time
  • Faster return to normal daily activities
  • Less risk of infection
  • In many cases, better clinical outcomes

Currently, surgeons at Beaumont are using the da Vinci robot for prostate cancer removal, low colon and rectal tumor surgery, heart surgery and gynecological surgery, including hysterectomy.

Beaumont First in State to Perform Robotic Heart Procedure for Atrial Fibrillation

Doctors at Beaumont Hospital, Troy have performed Michigan's first minimally invasive robotic procedure to correct atrial fibrillation, a prevalent and growing heart rhythm disorder. The new robotic maze procedure is an alternative to open-heart surgery. It's performed through tiny, keyhole incisions with fewer complications and a shorter hospital stay.
