Why choose Ochsner Health for robotic surgery?
In the world of robotic surgery, experience matters. Ochsner Health surgeons are regional leaders in the field. Our surgeons use robotic approaches for the most complex cases when performing surgery, while other surgeons may rely on open, traditional techniques. Using the most advanced robotic technology on the market, our team provides results so you can get back to your active life.
Robotic surgery, also known as robotic-assisted surgery, is a type of specialized minimally invasive surgery. During procedures that use robotic technology, the surgeon sits at a console in the operating room and manipulates mechanical arms equipped with a camera and surgical tools — all from outside the body — while watching the surgery in real time on a monitor. The camera allows the surgeon to see parts of the body that aren’t visible with the naked eye, and the instruments allow the surgeon to perform complex operations with more precision.
