What is Robotic Surgery?

Robotic surgery offers a minimally invasive approach to surgery allowing specialists to perform complex procedures with increased accuracy and control than is possible through standard operative techniques.

Depending on the robotic system utilised, the technical advantages offered to surgeons can include enhanced visualisation through magnification, greater control and flexibility of instruments or improved precision through imaging and advanced surgical planning.

Similar to laparoscopic surgery, but with added technology, robotic surgery allows for surgery to be carried out through a few small incisions generally resulting in:

  • Fewer complications
  • Faster recovery
  • Less pain
  • Smaller scars

Wollongong Private Hospital is the market leader of robotic surgery in the Illawarra and South Coast offering patients three innovative Surgical Systems, operated by a number of highly skilled surgeons:
