Robotic surgery continues to shape the way in which surgical procedures are performed across Australia. It is widely accepted as an advanced form of minimally invasive surgery resulting in a faster recovery allowing patients to return to work and their regular daily activities more quickly, whilst experiencing reduced pain and an improved cosmetic result due to small incisions resulting in less scarring.
The latest versions of the da Vinci Xi surgical robotic system and the Stryker Mako orthopaedic robotic system, are now available for a variety of procedures at North Shore Private Hospital. This advanced state-of-the-art technology allows our highly skilled specialists to enhance their surgical capabilities to provide improved control, precision and movements.
The da Vinci Xi Robot
The da Vinci Surgical System expands the doctors' human capabilities and allows routine and complex procedures to be performed minimally invasively. Via three integrated components, the surgeon controls the da Vinci Xi robot from a surgeon console. The system features revolutionary anatomical access, crystal clear 3DHD vision, magnification and motion tremor control allowing the surgeon to operate high-tech instrumentation with greater dexterity and precision than other minimally invasive techniques.
The Stryker Mako Robot
Through its innovative use of technology, Stryker’s robotic-arm assisted surgery takes partial knee resurfacing to a new level of precision, when compared to manual techniques.
Our surgeons are now able to offer an innovative treatment option for adults living with early to mid-stage osteoarthritis that has not yet progressed to all three compartments of the knee. Robotic-arm assisted Partial knee surgery delivers a minimally invasive procedure for early to mid-stage osteoarthritis, confined to one or two compartments of the knee.
North Shore Private Hospital currently offers robotic assisted surgery for the following specialties:
