"One of the robotic arms holds a magnified 3D high definition camera, which gives us a much better view of the surgical site than we would have with just our own two eyes."

"One is that the robot performs the surgery 'a robot operated on my hernia,'" Chisholm said. "Technically, it's not a robot because it can't perform surgery without someone controlling it it's actually computer assisted surgery. Food and Drug Administration approved for minimally invasive surgeries in 2000. Nine years later, the da Vinci was being used in 80 percent of surgeries to remove cancerous prostates, according to its maker, Intuitive Surgical, Inc.

"The robotic arms hold miniaturized surgical instruments, so we can get in through very small incisions," he said. "That means there's less chance of infection, less pain, much less scarring and a quicker recovery time. Because the arms have 'wrists' that can rotate more than 360 degrees, we have far more maneuverability than we do with laparoscopic surgery, and we can get into hard to reach areas."

"But myths and misconceptions about robots in the operating room still abound," said physician Dr. Keith Chisholm, a Board Certified General Surgeon on staff at Florida Hospital North Pinellas.

In addition, the Tampa Bay area is fortunate to have the cutting edge 2 year old Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation (CAMLS) operated by the University of Womens Air Max Nike South Florida.

In a 2013 FDA survey, surgeons experienced with da Vinci said their patients have less bleeding, fewer complications, much quicker recovery times and less time in the hospital 24 hours on average. Interestingly, those who used da Vinci to remove advanced cancer in the tonsils region of the throat said half of their patients were able to avoid chemotherapy.

"The robotics technology is expensive and the whole surgical team has to be trained, which can add to the cost," Chisholm said. "But there's also a tremendous savings compared with traditional surgery because the patient is out of the hospital more quickly and there are fewer complications."

A study published in July 2013 found that half of the minimally invasive procedures reviewed, including robotics assisted and laparoscopic surgeries, cost insurance providers less than the same surgeries performed in the traditional manner. Four of the six minimally invasive surgeries also resulted in fewer lost work days sometimes several weeks fewer.

access to training, practice with simulators and continuing education, so we're extremely well prepared," Chisholm said.

"Many times, the robotics assisted procedures can be done much more quickly, so there's less risk simply because the duration of the procedure is shorter," he said. "You also have the smaller incisions, Air Max 2016 Price

Any surgery has certain risks, but in many ways, robotics assisted surgeries have fewer overall, Dr. Chisholm said.

Dr. Keith Chisholm graduated from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, Medical School and went on to residency training at the University of Florida, becoming an assistant adjunct professor and attending surgeon at the Malcolm Randall VA Medical Center in Gainesville, Fla.

Robotics assisted surgery has become enormously popular, with physicians around the world performing 1.5 million procedures from hysterectomies to heart valve repairs in 2011.
