Aurora’s Robotic Surgery Center
The team at The Medical Center of Aurora (TMCA) is committed to getting our patients back to their lives in the safest, most efficient way possible. One of the ways we can do that for some of our patients is through the da Vinci® robotic surgery system.
During robotic surgery, the surgeon sits at the robotic system console several feet from the patient in the operating room. The surgeon views the body through a high-definition, 3D system while using hand controls to move robotic arms, which have been inserted strategically through small incisions. The robotic arms mirror the surgeon’s motions on a much smaller scale, providing the surgeon more dexterity and agility than the human hand alone.
Benefits of robotic surgery
This approach leads to a variety of benefits, including:
- Reduced blood loss
- Smaller incisions, less pain and scarring
- Fewer complications
- Reduced risk of infection
- A shorter hospital stay
- Faster return to normal daily activities
Areas of specialization
We can use our leading technology on qualifying patients who are in need of surgeries, such as:
- Gynecology surgery including hysterectomy
- Uterine fibroids
- Uterine prolapse
- Menorrhagia or excessive bleeding
Ask your doctor if robotic surgery is an option for you. Not all patients are candidates for robot-assisted surgery. Your doctor will consider your health history and current condition when assessing robotic surgery as a treatment option.
