Technology

We offer minimally-invasive laparoscopic and robotic-assisted surgery at Willis-Knighton facilities, where we have access to the advanced technology of the da Vinci Surgical System®. While not every surgery can be performed using this technology, it does have advantages for the patient and the surgeon.

With the da Vinci Surgical System, we operate through just a few small incisions. This technology featured a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and tiny wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand. This offers the surgeon better vision, precision and control.

Advantages of robotic surgery:

  • Minimally invasive/fewer incisions
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Greater precision
  • Video monitoring during surgery
