Robotic Surgery Inspira Medical Centers Vineland and Woodbury are home to the da Vinci® Surgical System, a minimally invasive robotic surgery tool that offers patients the latest techniques for surgery. Inspira’s team of highly-skilled robotic surgeons has provided the region with state-of-the-art robotic surgery since 2010. Today, Inspira Health Network’s robotic surgeons offer a wide-range of procedures, including single-site robotic surgery which provides patients with minimal to no scarring and speeds up their recovery time so they can get back to their lives quicker. During a robotic surgery, the surgeon has full control over the surgical robot and an enhanced view of the surgical site. The surgeon operates from a console while the robotic surgical arms act as an extension of the surgeon’s hands. These precision engineered arms and 3-D views provide optimal visualization of the surgical site, as well as more precise movement within tight spaces. The instruments used in robotic surgery are inserted through a few or one very small incisions which provide patients with many more benefits than traditional open surgery. Benefits of Robotic Surgery may include: A shorter hospital stay Less blood loss Fewer complications Less need for narcotic pain medicine A faster recovery Smaller incisions for minimal scarring Orthopedic Robotic Surgery Depending on your specific surgical needs, we offer the option of robotic-arm assisted joint replacement surgery with the help of the Mako System. This technology helps individualize treatment by using advanced 3-D imaging to create custom surgical plans with an unmatched level of precision. Available for hip replacement as well as full and partial knee replacements, this option provides a personalized surgical experience. How it works: A 3-D model of the patient’s hip or knee is taken before surgery and used to develop a preplan The model is used to guide the surgeon’s placement of an implant with pinpoint accuracy, giving live feedback intraoperatively to the surgeon.
