Three Types of Robot-Assisted Surgery

Robotic surgery, a type of minimally invasive surgery, is more precise and results in a shorter recovery period. With robot-assisted surgery, you can look forward to feeling better and getting back to living your life sooner. At Dignity Health North State our surgeons use three different types of robot technology to treat many conditions.

Mazor Robotic Surgery for Spine
MAKO Robotic Surgery for Knee
da Vinci Robotic Surgery for General Surgery

Mazor Robotic Surgery for Spine

A Mazor surgical robot is about the size of a 12-ounce beverage can. It enables fast and precise placement of spinal implants for lumbar and thoracic spine fusions. It’s a procedure often used to treat patients suffering from debilitating back pain or a limited range of motion. It might be an option for slipped vertebrae, scoliosis, kyphosis, and spinal nerve issues.

MAKO Robotic Surgery for Knee

MAKO technology provides your surgeon with a patient-specific 3-D model to pre-plan your knee replacement. During surgery, your surgeon guides MAKO’s robotic-arm based on your patient-specific plan. By selectively targeting just the damaged part of the joint, your surgeon can replace it while helping to spare the healthy bone and ligaments surrounding it.

da Vinci Robotic Surgery for General Surgery

The da Vinci device has robotic arms that hold endoscopic cameras and surgical tools, allowing your surgeon to perform the procedure. The surgeon receives 3D images from the endoscopic cameras and directs the motion of the robot using handheld controllers. It can make a significant difference and is especially effective for treating prostate cancer and other urologic and delicate surgery issues.
