Finally head and neck doctors have an effective alternative to traditional open and endoscopic surgery! The latest evolution in surgical technology is the da Vinci robot. With the assistance from the da Vinci Robot, surgeons can operate through tiny incisions, which are less than an inch long, with greater vision, precision, dexterity and control than ever before.
While all surgeries carry risk, traditional open surgery, with a large incision, has significant drawbacks such as pain, trauma, long recovery and risk of infection. Alternatively, endoscopic surgery, while effective and used for many routine procedures, is challenged by human anatomy.
If you require surgery to treat your condition, you may be a candidate for da Vinci Surgery — a safe, effective and minimally invasive procedure. Using the most advanced technology available today, the da Vinci Surgical System allows your doctor to perform delicate and complex operations through tiny incisions.
When lifestyle changes, medication or other less invasive treatments do not help your condition, surgery is often recommended. If your doctor suggests surgery, learning about all available treatment options can help you to make the best decision for your situation and ease any anxiety you may feel about surgery.
