The future is now. How today’s patients are benefitting from robotic surgery.

Robotic surgery may seem like a technique of the future, but it's happening right now, right here at Covenant HealthCare. Aimie Goodrow, RN sat down with WNEM-TV to discuss the da Vinci® and MAKOplasty machines, the processes, the benefits and more.

All about da Vinci®.

Goodrow explains that da Vinci® robots allow doctors to perform several different types of surgery, including prostate surgery, hysterectomies and more.

Not only does Covenant HealthCare have three da Vinci® robots, we've also completed over 5,000 da Vinci® robotic surgeries. This means we have the experience and depth in team to give patients and families added confidence and care.

Need a knee? Meet MAKOplasty.

MAKOplasty is a robotic arm-assisted procedure for partial or total knee replacements, often performed to relieve the pain caused by joint degeneration from osteoarthritis. MAKOplasty allows surgeons to tailor a knee specifically to a patient, rather than tailoring the patient to the knee. It's individualized. It's effective. And it often results in a more natural-feeling knee post-surgery.

Covenant HealthCare is proud to have two MAKOplasty machines as well as four experienced MAKOplasty physicians on our team.

The benefits of robotic surgery.

Robotic surgery boasts countless benefits, including enhanced surgical precision, flexibility and control. In many instances, robotic surgery helps surgeons perform more delicate or complex procedures that would otherwise be difficult or impossible.

Since many robotic surgeries are minimally invasive, patients also benefit from:

  • Smaller incision sites with minimal scarring
  • Decreased pain
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Faster recovery and ability to resume daily functions

Is robotic surgery right for me?

It's important to talk to your doctor about the benefits and risks of robotic surgery and how it compares to other techniques.

If you and your doctor determine robotic surgery is the right option, you can feel confident knowing you're in the best hands at Covenant HealthCare. We're ranked #1 in the region for orthopaedic care and have the robotic technology, skills and experience to help you through the surgical and healing processes.
