The Robotics Controversy: Why CIGC Never Uses The Robotic Approach
Robotic surgery is performed with the surgeon sitting at a control station. Robotic “arms” that are inserted into the patient’s abdomen are manipulated by the surgeon across the room. The robotic controversy is that surgeons who may be inadequately trained in laparoscopy are able to use robot-assisted laparoscopic surgery as an alternative to open GYN surgery, but a tool does not replace skill.
The surgeons at The Center for Innovative GYN Care Dr. Paul MacKoul, MD and Dr. Natalya Danilyants, MD have advanced skills in minimally invasive laparoscopic techniques that optimize surgical care, without the use of a robot. They have pioneered revolutionary techniques including DualPortGYN and LAAM to simplify even the most complicated surgical procedures.
