Changing the Experience of Surgery

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a condition that may require surgery, you owe it to yourself to learn about all of your medical options, including the most effective, least invasive surgical treatments available.

Surgery example

Robotic surgery provides surgeons with an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy, putting a surgeon's hands at the controls of a state-of-the-art robotic platform. The robotic system enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision.

Conditions We Treat

Fort Walton Beach Medical Center uses Robotic Surgery in the treatment of the following areas:

Benefits

For the patient, benefits may include:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter recovery time
  • A faster return to normal daily activities
  • And in many cases, better clinical outcomes

It is important to know that robotic surgery does not place a robot at the controls; your surgeon is controlling every aspect of the surgery with the assistance of the robotic platform.

Is Robotic Surgery right for me?

While clinical studies support the effectiveness of robotic surgery when used in minimally invasive surgery, individual results may vary. Robotic surgery may not be appropriate for every individual. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits.
