Surgical robotics has grown significantly over the past ten years and are projected to continue to improve and grow from artificial intelligence (AI) assisted robotics to fully autonomous robots. There is no doubt that advancements in technology and hardware are revolutionizing operating rooms.
However, there are numerous surgeons that are not embracing this beneficial technology. More than a third of knee replacement procedures are still being done without robotics, and over 40% of hip replacement procedures. Over 78% of surgeons say they are interested in surgical robots and would like to move to using that technology, but only 53% are currently using robotics to assist with their surgeries. Typically, the reason comes down to cost of implementation. Some surgical centers and surgeons just do not want to invest in the advantages of surgical robotics.
Central Valley Surgical Specialists (CVSS), however, have recognized the advantages of surgical robotics and the many benefits it provides for their patients. The surgeons at CVSS perform robot-assisted surgeries because it allows them to perform complex procedures with more precision, flexibility, and control than they would have with conventional surgery techniques. These robot-assisted surgeries also allow procedures to be done through very small incisions, and minimally invasive surgery allows a faster recovery with less pain and fewer potential complications.
Surgeons who choose the benefits of a surgical center that has made the investment in surgical robotics technology are providing patients with a safe and updated facility with state-of-the-art equipment that gives their surgeons an advantage and improves their chances of safe, efficient, and successful surgeries.
Central Valley Surgical Center (CVSC) has embraced the benefits of surgical robotics and made that investment for their surgeons and patients. All the surgical equipment at CVSC is state-of-the-art. With the best surgical equipment from Stryker, SmithNephew, Alcon, DePuy Synthes, and Arthrex, surgeons can be assured they will have the robotic equipment they want and need available at their fingertips.
One of the most commonly used clinical robotic surgical systems can provide patients with a clear understanding of the benefits of robotic-assisted surgery. A camera with mechanical arms and surgical instruments attached can be operated by a surgeon while he sits at a computer console next to the operating table. That console provides him with high definition, magnified, 3D views of the surgical site, a better view than any person can achieve with their bare eyes. With that view and those mechanical arms and surgical equipment, the surgeon has significantly more precise control and can perform delicate and complex procedures that cannot be done with their bare hands.
With surgical robotics promising improved precision and visualization for surgeons, and better experiences and improved outcomes for patients, it is obvious that Central Valley Surgical Center has made the wisest investment they can for their surgeons and patients. Genesis Medical Management recommends that all surgical centers follow the lead of CVSS and invest in their future.
