Improving Patient Outcomes with Robotics

Improving Patient Outcomes with Robotics

Course Description

Robotic technology may be an option for patients needing heart surgery or lung cancer surgery. Using robotics can make the surgery itself more successful and reduce recovery time and pain.

Allegheny Health Network has the most integrated program in the area that uses robotics to treat medical conditions. Join Cardiothoracic Surgeon, Walter McGregor, MD and Thoracic Surgeon, Lana Schumacher, MD, for an informational program where you can learn more about the use of robotics and the benefits of this exciting technology. The robotics team will provide you with information about:

• Robotic surgery and the results their own patients have experienced.

• The da Vinci Surgical System which enables surgeons to perform delicate and

complex operations through a few small incisions.

• New techniques that permit surgeons to perform procedures with very small

incisions into the body.

• The benefits of robotic surgery.

• How robotic surgery can reduce your overall medical costs.
