Knifeless Surgery

Robotics are now playing a significant role in treating cancers that were once inoperable due to their location.  Some brain tumors, A-V malformations, and other serious conditions are now treated with incision-less surgery called Cyberknife.  This is the latest technology in treating cancers and tumors, the robot focuses the beam of radiation right onto the tumor, while blasting linear charges from hundreds of different angles, thus minimizing adjacent tissue destruction.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

Instead of having a very large incision and a 6 week disability post op, new surgical techniques using tiny incisions and endoscopic instruments are changing the world of surgery.  New developing tools and techniques are enabling safer surgery with significant decrease in post op pain and disability.  Stryker surgical is one of the leaders in revolutionizing the operating room for more efficient and productive surgical results.

Robotic Surgery

Robotic surgery is leading the way in innovation.  The enhanced precision and capabilities given to the surgeon are remarkable.  Intuitive Surgical’s DaVinci robotic system has revolutionized prostatectomy surgery for prostate cancer.  Hansen Medical has released a new robotic catheter system for cardiac catheterization procedures with enhanced safety, flexibility, and capability.
