Robotic Procedures

Dr Kenny Low is now qualified in the most advanced medical technology for prostate and kidney cancer, the da Vinci Surgical System which is now available at John Flynn Private Hospital, Tugun.

The da Vinci Surgical System replicates open surgery with precision and accuracy using robotic assisted minimally invasive technology.

The da Vinci Surgical System expands a doctor's human capabilities and allows routine and complex procedures to be performed minimally invasively. Via three integrated components, the surgeon controls the da Vinci robot from a surgeon console. The surgeons' hand movements are scaled down to perform tiny movements within the body. Optimised 3D vision, magnification and motion tremor control allow the surgeon to operate high-tech instrumentation with greater dexterity and precision.

The two definitively documented advantages to robotic surgery (and laparoscopic surgery) are decreased blood loss and faster recovery compared with open surgery.
