Why Choose Robotic Surgery at Cedars Sinai Marina del Rey Hospital?Your Health. Your Hospital.
We put our talented surgeons at the controls of the world’s most advanced robotic surgical system. The unprecedented precision of this state-of-the-art platform allows our surgeons to perform complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions. The minimally invasive da Vinci® Si Surgical System is making surgery safer for a growing number of procedures.
Low Risks and Substantial Benefits
Robot-assisted surgery implies minimal postoperative risks and a series of considerable advantages
Robotic-assisted surgery gives our patients a wider range of options for minimally invasive operations. And it’s helping our highly qualified physicians provide even more effective care. Robotic surgery is a type of minimally invasive surgery that is different from the others: instead of operating on patients through large incisions, surgeons use miniaturized surgical instruments that fit through a series of quarter-inch incisions. The miniaturized instruments are mounted on 3 separate robotic arms, allowing the surgeon maximum range of motion and precision. The da Vinci’s fourth arm contains a magnified high-definition 3D camera that guides the surgeon during the procedure.
The surgeon controls these instruments and the camera from a console located in the operating room. Placing his fingers into the master controls, he is able to operate all 4 arms of the da Vinci simultaneously while looking through a stereoscopic high-definition monitor.
The Future of Surgery. Today
Breakthrough surgical technology is improving the surgical experience for patients and doctors alike
At Cedars Sinai Marina del Rey Hospital, we perform many types of robotic surgery to treat several complex conditions in our patients. Our surgeons perform a wide range of robotic surgeries, including:
Prioritizing the Safety of Our Patients
By virtue of the innovative technology it employs, robotic surgery entails remarkable rates of success and superior outcomes
Because robotic arms are more flexible than standard laparoscopic tools and allow greater precision and better access to difficult areas, our surgeons are able to treat many types of conditions in a minimally invasive way, including:
After robotic gynecologic surgery for example, when compared with other surgical approaches, many women experience less postoperative pain, reduced scarring, fewer complications and a faster return to normal activities. Robotic surgery also may help preserve your fertility and improve your reproductive health, depending on your age and the procedure you undergo.
At Cedars Sinai Marina del Rey Hospital, we continue to serve the community with the latest medical technology. We utilize minimally invasive laparoscopic technology and advanced orthopedic surgical equipment. For patients, having the option to choose a minimally invasive procedure may mean less pain and scarring, a shorter recovery time, a faster return to normal daily activities – and in many cases, better results.
