Swedish, a medical center in the Northwest region, offers a complete and qualified robotic-assisted surgical program. Swedish launched the robotic-assisted surgical program back in 2005. It has conducted over 3,400 robotic-assisted surgeries till date.
The robotics program from Swedish is the first in the Northwest region to include a virtual-reality training simulator system, which enables surgeons to practice on the robotic system.
Surgeons affiliated to Swedish are utilizing the robotic-assisted system to conduct minimally invasive surgeries for treating gynecological, thoracic, and urological diseases. The robotic-assisted system can be used to cure patients of lung cancer, ovarian cancer, cervical, kidney cancer, prostate cancer, endometriosis and uterine. It can also be used to perform complex reconstruction surgeries in gynecology.
Currently, Swedish utilizes the robotic-assisted surgery system for general surgeries such as pancreatic and colon cancer. It can also be used to treat ailments in ear-nose-and-throat, bariatric, and colorectal. Swedish bought three advanced robotic-assisted surgical systems last year. It has purchased a fourth surgical system to make use of the minimally invasive surgical technology at its new hospital in Issaquah.
The robotic-assisted surgical system will enable a skilled surgeon to perform minimally invasive procedures in a safe way, thus accelerating patient recovery.
