Dr. Chang displays typical robotic instruments

Audio: “The Robotic surgery is one of the latest additions to minimally invasive surgery. The placement of the trocar is very similar as the standard laparoscopy, which I just demonstrated before. The instruments that we use are specially designed for the robotic. This is one of the typical robotic instruments.”

Dr. Chang displays photographs of surgeons using remote console for robotic surgery

Audio: “The surgeon will attach this instrument to the robot such as this. The surgeon then controls every movement of the robot from a remote console. This console can be in the same room or maybe in a different room. The 3D vision and the micro articulation of the instrument gives a surgeon a precise dissection during the procedure. This makes a complex operation much simpler compared to the standard laparoscopy.”

Text: Faster Recovery
Shorter Hospital Stay
Less Pain After Surgery

Audio: “Because the incisions are small, very little traumas are applied to the human body. This translates to faster recovery, shorter hospital stay and less pain after surgery. Most of the surgical procedures right now can be done using minimally invasive techniques, but not all of them. Your surgeon will evaluate your child to determine whether he or she can be a candidate for minimally evasive surgeries.”
