NewYork-Presbyterian Westchester offers the latest technology in robotic assisted surgery, an effective, minimally invasive treatment alternative to traditional surgical procedures.
Robotic surgery is less invasive than open surgeries, meaning smaller incisions and shorter recovery time. The robotic technology at NYP Westchester features a 3D, high-definition vision system, special instruments and computer software that are operated by the surgeon. The system allows the surgeon to use specialized instrumentation, including a miniaturized surgical camera and wristed instrument that are designed to help with precise dissection and reconstruction deep inside the body.
The robotic system is also used by specially trained NYP Westchester surgeons to perform minimally invasive surgeries treating a variety of conditions, including: acid reflux and gall bladder disease, diverticulitis, kidney and swallowing disorders, and certain cancers.
