Robotic Minimally Invasive Heart Surgery I
Robotic minimally invasive heart surgery I is an advanced procedure that eliminates the need for a sternotomy during surgery. This procedure is also known as minimally invasive surgery and requires tiny incisions. The surgeon guides the robot through these incisions and sees high-resolution 3-dimensional images of the robot’s every move during surgery.
Less post-operative pain
Robotic minimally invasive heart surgery can be a life-saving procedure that uses advanced robotic technologies to perform cardiac surgery. The robot is operated by a surgeon who uses joysticks to maneuver its robotic arms, which hold specially designed surgical instruments. The surgeon can watch the procedure from a viewport inside the patient’s chest. In the procedure, the surgeon will use these instruments to operate on the heart. Patients and their families are able to stay in the hospital for a few days, and are usually discharged home a day or two after the surgery.
Compared to traditional open heart surgery, robotic minimally invasive heart surgery I is less invasive and results in less post-operative pain. Ohio State Medical Center Wexner surgeons are highly experienced in robotic minimally invasive heart surgery. They are also dedicated to providing high quality education for medical students, residents, and fellows, as well as practicing physicians and allied health professionals.
Robotic minimally invasive heart surgery is a groundbreaking way to operate on the heart without making large incisions. Using specially designed instruments, robotic procedures can be performed without dividing the breastbone or opening the chest. These procedures have many advantages over traditional heart surgery. For example, patients can expect a faster recovery and less pain.
Among its many uses, robotic heart surgery is used to repair or replace the mitral valve. It is a highly precise procedure that can help surgeons perform complex, difficult procedures without compromising patient safety. The robotic technology allows the surgeon to visualize deep inside the heart chambers to ensure precision.
