At Abington Hospital – Jefferson Health, surgeons are making remarkable advancements using robotic surgery. Robotic technology gives the surgeon a three-dimensional view, similar to traditional surgery but with a greater depth perception. The robotic instruments offer a laparoscopic approach with magnification that is 10 times greater than the human eye.
Surgeons specially trained in robotics include gynecologists, gynecologic oncologists, general surgeons, a reproductive endocrinologist, a bariatric surgeon, urogynecologists, urologists and a pediatric urologist. They are performing prostatectomies, hysterectomies and tubal ligation reversals. They are also using robotic technology to remove ovaries, fallopian tubes and fibroid tumors and to perform kidney reconstructive surgery, surgical weight loss, cardiac surgery and other delicate procedures.
The benefits of robotic surgery-a much less-invasive procedure-include less pain and blood loss and shorter hospital stays and recovery times. Overall, robotic surgical patients recover more quickly and get back to their daily routines sooner.
At Abington Hospital, we are committed to bringing the latest advancements in medicine-including robotic surgery-to you by combining the most advanced technology with the highest quality of care.
