Robotic & Robotic-Assisted Surgery
Healthcare delivery has been transformed at Sydney Adventist Hospital.
With the evolution of surgical technology, Sydney Adventist Hospital has enhanced its sophisticated approach to patient care with two highly advanced, state-of-the-art surgical robotic systems.
da Vinci Surgical Robot
The da Vinci Surgical Robot is used by our surgeons specialising in Urology, Gynaecology, Colorectal Surgery and Cardiothoracic Surgery. The Robot enables surgeons to perform the traditional open procedures via a minimally invasive route and allows for high surgical precision by manipulating, scaling and translating their hand movements to the robotic arms operating on the patient. It is the next evolutionary step forward from Laparoscopic Surgery.
Robotic-arm Assisted Surgery (MAKO)
Our orthopaedic surgeons are now able to offer robotic-arm assisted surgery including hip replacement and partial knee replacement surgery using Stryker’s MAKO system. This highly advanced, surgeon controlled robotic arm enables the surgeon to accurately define, prepare and execute implant positioning based on individual patient CT scans.
