Minimally invasive robotic surgery
At the forefront of surgical care, surgeons at Appledore Medical Group use robot-assisted surgery when possible to provide advanced treatment for patients. With robotic surgery, a surgeon makes only a small incision through which a video camera and thin instruments are inserted to perform the surgical procedure.
The surgeon is able to control the robotic arms from an operating console that is feet away from the patient. Using this advanced technology, the surgeon can view the procedure through a video monitor that provides a magnified view of the surgical site, giving surgeons increased precision.
