Robotic-Assisted Surgery at McLaren Greater Lansing
If your doctor has recommended surgery, researching your procedure and surgical options can provide you with both knowledge, to ensure the quickest recovery possible, as well as peace-of-mind in knowing what to expect before, during and following surgery. At McLaren Greater Lansing, we are always working with our surgeons to bring the latest proven treatments to our patients and maintaining the safest environment of care.
Here at McLaren Greater Lansing, we use the latest in da Vinci Surgical Robot System technology which enhances surgical capabilities by enabling the performance of complex surgeries through tiny surgical openings. The system allows surgeon's hand movements to be scaled, filtered and translated into precise movements of micro-instruments within the operative site. This system is widely used throughout the nation.
The advantages of robotic-assisted surgery for patients include:
Shorter hospital stays
Less risk of infection
Reduced blood loss and transfusions
Speedier return to daily activities
