Minimally invasive surgery at Beaumont is nothing short of amazing. Using high definition technology, surgeons at Beaumont now offer specialized robotic surgery in urology, gynecology, cardiology, general surgery and oncology. Real-time, 3-D imaging and
micro-technology offers Beaumont surgeons more accurate visualization, meaning greater precision and improved clinical outcomes.
This system combines the knowledge and skills of the surgeon with precise manipulation of surgical instruments. The surgeon sits at a console near the patient and looks at a screen. The surgeon sees what a small camera at the end of the robotic arm is
capturing inside the patient, offering a magnified, three-dimensional view that improves the surgeon’s vision and ability to manipulate vital structures. The surgeon then uses remote hand controls to move and guide the robotic arms and conduct
the surgery through either one or a couple of small incisions.
The process allows surgeons to have a better, up-close view inside the patient, and more precise movements of the tools being used to perform the surgery. In robotic surgery for children, the camera is especially beneficial because it allows a better,
enlarged view of very small surgical areas.
