These days, many surgeries come down to a small incision site that gets patients back to life quickly and doing the things they love. At Chesapeake Regional Healthcare we offer our patients the most-effective, most-advanced and least-invasive robotic surgical treatments available.
Robotic surgery is a type of minimally invasive surgery that can enhance precision and allow surgeons to perform advanced procedures through small incisions. This often results in less scarring and faster recovery times for patients.
da Vinci®️ Surgical System
The da Vinci® Surgical System provides surgeons with an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy, putting a surgeon’s hands at the controls of a state-of-the-art robotic platform. The da Vinci System enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision. State-of-the-art robotic and computer technology transform the surgeon’s hand and arm movements into small, precise movements. The robotic “wrists” can rotate a full 360 degrees, giving the surgeon exceptional accuracy, flexibility and range of motion.
Patient benefits may include:
- Significantly less pain
- Less blood loss
- Less scarring
- Shorter recovery time
- A faster return to normal daily activities
- And in many cases, better clinical outcomes
Not just one, but two
Chesapeake Regional Medical Center has two da Vinci Surgical Systems allowing our certified surgeons to have more time performing robotics procedures. Recently, we were the first hospital in the state of Virginia to purchase the da Vinci XI Surgical System, which resulted from increased surgical demand for the older da Vinci SI System. Having both of these systems allows us flexibility in scheduling patients for robotic procedures and provides patients with the most advanced technology available.
MAKOplasty Robotic Arm Technology
Chesapeake Regional Medical Center offers MAKOplasty for knee and hip pain. MAKOplasty robotic arm technology enables surgeons to perform personalized partial knee and total hip replacement surgery, resulting in fewer complications and a shorter recovery time allowing you to return to your daily activities more quickly.
This technology offers the potential for a higher level of patient–specific implant alignment and positioning to accurately reproduce the surgical plan, an aspect not consistently achieved in manual techniques. Accurate alignment and positioning of hip implants are important factors affecting surgical outcomes and the lifespan of implants.
Mazor X™ Robotics
The Mazor X™ allows the surgeon to perform minimally invasive spine surgery with an added layer of precision and accuracy. From building a surgical plan using a scan of the patient’s spine, to inserting screws accurately with minimal incisions, the Mazor X™ has enhanced our surgical program for the benefit of our patients.
Mazor Robotics technology has been clinically validated to ensure 1.5mm accuracy for increased patient safety as compared to freehand spine surgery. Before entering the OR, surgeons use Renaissance to pre-plan the optimal surgery in a CT-based 3D simulation of the patient’s spine. During surgery, Renaissance guides the surgeon’s hand and tools to the precise pre-planned location. Mazor Robotics technology may reduce the use of fluoroscopy in minimally-invasive procedures.
Patient Benefits Include
- Increases accuracy
- Lowers complication rates
- Reduces postoperative pain
- Enables faster recovery and return to daily activities
Who is a Candidate for Mazor X™ Robotics?
If you suffer from a debilitating spine condition such as
- Degenerative disc disease
- Herniated disc
Corindus Corpath GRX System
Increased control and accuracy
The Corindus CorPath® System is the first FDA-cleared medical device to bring robotic-assisted precision to percutaneous coronary and vascular procedures. With the CorPath System, Chesapeake Regional brings robotic precision to interventional procedures to help optimize clinical outcomes and minimize the costs associated with complications of improper stent placement with manual procedures. It provides increased control and accuracy via robotic assisted operation. It also has greater clinical success in complex cases as compared to comparable manual procedures, reducing the likelihood for additional stents by 8.3% as a result of robotic precision including sub-millimeter measurement capabilities, advanced automation, and device movements as small as a millimeter.
