Robotic Surgery

Robotic Surgery at Regional Medical Center

Regional Medical Center (RMC) is committed to providing the communities it serves with access to advanced care and the most state-of-the-art technology right here, close to home. Robotic-assisted surgery is an effective alternative to “open” surgery and offers significant benefits to the patient.

In traditional “open” surgery, surgeons make large incisions in skin and muscle so they can see into and work on the area of concern. With robotic technology, the surgeon has a close-up three dimensional view of the patient’s anatomy. In addition, the physician controls the surgical instruments on the robot. Together, these technological advancements provide surgeons with far greater precision, dexterity, and control.

Benefits of robotic-assisted surgery

  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster recovery
  • Less blood loss
  • More precise surgery
  • Smaller incisions associated with minimal scarring

Robotic-assisted orthopedic surgery

We use robotic technology in performing total hip and knee replacement procedures. During surgery, we are able to place prosthetic implants with enhanced precision and operate with greater surgical dexterity. It also helps in the precise placement of the new joint, which leads to better joint function and positive patient outcomes.

Robotic-assisted gynecologic surgery

We treat a range of women’s health conditions and perform a variety of procedures using robotic-assisted technology including:

  • Endometriosis
  • Myomectomy
  • Total Benign Hysterectomy
  • Vaginal Prolapse Repair

General Surgery

Often, patients have a health concern that needs to be treated by a general surgeon. Several surgical procedures can be performed using robotic-assisted technology, such as:

  • Gallbladder
  • Reflux Surgery
  • Ventral Hernia Repair
  • Inguinal Hernia
  • Colorectal Surgery
