McLaren Hospitals have turned surgery into a "Tiny incision. Big vision" with the use of robotics. McLaren is the only hospital in the region that offers robotic surgeries and offers more types than any other hospital in Michigan.
Robotic-assisted surgery, a type of minimally invasive surgery (MIS), uses surgical robotic equipment which imitates surgical movements. MIS procedures allow surgeons to operate through small ports rather than large incisions, resulting in shorter recovery times, fewer complications and reduced hospital stays. Surgical robotics combines minimally invasive surgery with highly advanced clinical technology.
McLaren Medical Group physicians use the da Vinci Surgical Robot System which enhances surgical capabilities by enabling the performance of complex surgeries through tiny surgical openings. The system allows surgeon's hand movements to be scaled, filtered and translated into precise movements of micro-instruments within the operative site. The da Vinci system has been successfully used in thousands of procedures worldwide.
Women facing a hysterectomy have access to this unique surgical alternative when they choose a McLaren Medical Group physician for their health care needs. McLaren Medical Group physicians offer advanced surgical options for women who are facing a hysterectomy or other gynecological procedure and are among the leading experts in their field in Michigan.
For men, highly advanced technology has led to the development of a revolutionary new form of prostate surgery, the robotic prostatectomy. This procedure utilizes a state-of-the art surgical system designed to help your doctor perform the most precise and least invasive prostatectomy available today. McLaren Medical Group Urologists are available for consultations for men diagnosed with prostate disorders needing a prostatectomy.
