At Ramsay Health Care, we stand at the forefront of world-leading innovation in health care delivery to bring our patients a world of benefits. 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 North Shore Robotic Program is a leader in robotic surgery with state of the art technology enhancing surgical capability across a range of specialties. The latest versions of the da Vinci surgical robotic system, the Stryker Mako Robotic Arm Assisted orthopaedic surgical system and the Mazor X SE spinal robotic system are now available for a variety of procedures at North Shore Private Hospital.
The North Shore Robotic Program offers robotic surgery for:
- Cardiothoracic conditions
- Colorectal conditions
- Gynaecological conditions
- Liver, Pancreatic and Bile Duct (Hepatobiliary) conditions
- Orthopaedic conditions
- Spinal conditions
- Upper Gastro-Intestinal conditions and Bariatrics
- Urological conditions
With over 20 surgeons accredited to utilise the robots, we are committed to providing the best in quality health care, offering the most advanced surgical options for the community of Sydney.
Why choose North Shore Private Hospital for robotic surgery?
Since opening its doors in 1998, North Shore Private Hospital has been seen as the benchmark for private hospital care in Sydney. Our reputation is one of providing high quality services and excellent patient centred care.
With dedicated robotic theatres, our world-class surgeons work with our team of extensively trained theatre staff to provide the highest standard of personalized care to all our patients. Our team work together to ensure the needs of our patients are met prior to admission, whilst in hospital and following discharge.
As part of this patient centred approach, we have agreements in place that robotic surgery should be provided at no extra cost to our patients. There are doctor’s fees involved for private patients undergoing any surgery, whether it be open, robotic or laparoscopic. However until now, the extra cost of the disposable surgical attachments required for each robotic procedure has added to the expense of robotic surgery. We believe, the latest robotic innovations should be available to patients who would benefit, at no extra cost compared to traditional surgery.
While many hospitals perform robotic surgery the North Shore Private program is exceptional, as we cover multiple specialties, including some extremely rare cases such as Robotic thymectomy, Robotic enucleation of insulinoma and Robotic cavectomy. We are one of only a handful of hospitals with the surgical expertise and clinical support to perform some of these rarer cases.
Through our collaboration with Royal North Shore Hospital, we are the only hospital in Australia performing cardiothoracic surgery for both public and private cases.
