Robotic Surgery

Advances in robotics and GPS technology have sparked a revolution in modern surgery. Surgeons can now perform complex procedures, many of them minimally invasively, with greater control and precision than ever before.

The Robotics Revolution

An early adopter of advanced medical technologies, Community Memorial Hospital acquired a da Vinci surgical system in 2005, the first hospital between Los Angeles and San Francisco to do so. We have since expanded our robust robotic surgery program to include three different robotic surgical platforms:

Robotic surgery is often referred to as “robotic-assisted surgery” and that’s for good reason. Without a skilled surgeon at the helm, a robotic surgical platform is just a sophisticated tool. The surgeon’s technique and expertise using the robot makes all the difference. With the da Vinci system, surgeons work inside a highly sophisticated, immersive console, remotely manipulating tiny instruments that have been inserted into the surgical area. The Rosa Total Joint System and the Excelsius GPS call for a more hands-on approach. Guided by a digital blueprint tailored to the patient’s specific anatomy, surgeons operate at the patient bedside with the assistance of precision robot arms. All three of these robotic platforms provide valuable advantages to both patients and surgeons.

  • Less trauma to the body
  • Reduced blood loss and need for transfusions
  • Less post-operative pain and discomfort
  • Reduced risk of infection
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Faster recovery and return to normal activities
  • Minimal scarring
  • Enhanced 3D visualization
  • Greater surgical precision
  • Improved access to the surgical site

All our robotic surgeons are specially trained on the specific robotic platform they use and have had consistently good outcomes.
