Robotic Surgery With Peace Of Mind
As the leader of robotic surgery in the Gulf South region, Ochsner is one of several training sites for robotic surgery in the world. This means you can have peace of mind knowing that our surgeons are uniquely qualified. The da Vinci® Surgical System is simply the most advanced tool available for urologic and gynecologic procedures. Instead of making large incisions as in traditional surgery, the robot only requires a series of small incisions. This means less blood loss and less scarring. Also, because of the minimally invasive nature of the procedure, patients recover very quickly and can usually renew normal activity within a week. At Ochsner, the same surgeons, nurses and technicians work with the robotic surgery system every time. This ensures that everyone on the team is familiar with the techniques unique to the technology. In addition, Ochsner's team approach allows multiple doctors from different areas of specialty to easily collaborate on a particular case.
Ochsner's robotic surgical offerings include:
- Gynecological Robotics
- Robotic Prostatectomy (Prostate Cancer)
- Robotic Partial Nephrectomy (Kidney Cancer)
- Weight Loss/ Bariatrics
- Obstructed Kidneys
