Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery

Robotic Surgery - McLaren Oakland 50 North Perry Street, Pontiac, MI 48342 Phone: (248) 338-5000

McLaren Oakland offers a wide range of state-of-the-art robotic-assisted surgical procedures. This type of minimally invasive option for surgery is performed under the direction and guidance of a highly trained surgeon.

Robotic-assisted surgery available at McLaren Oakland includes The da Vinci® Surgical System. One of the advantages of robotic-assisted surgery is that side effects are minimized. This includes less bleeding, lower risk of infection, less pain and scarring. Patients usually experience a faster recovery. In most cases, the patient goes home the same day and is able to get back to normal activity much sooner.

The daVinci® Surgical System allows surgeons to operate using much smaller incisions than in traditional surgery. The system's enhanced high resolution three dimensional imaging system allows surgeons to perform delicate procedures with a greater range of motion, control and precision. Surgeons operate from the robotic console and are in control of the instruments and the procedure at all times. Not all surgery is suitable for this kind of technique, but the range of options is increasing.

At McLaren Oakland, daVinci® Surgical System procedures include:
  • Gynecologic surgery, such as hysterectomies, sterilizations and endometrial ablations
  • Urological surgery, including kidney stone and prostate procedures

Navio Surgical System®

In addition, McLaren Oakland offers robotic-assisted surgery with the Navio Surgical System® in partial knee replacement for patients living with knee pain caused by early to mid-stage osteoarthritis.
