Robotic Surgery Q & A
What is robotic surgery?
Robotic surgery is the most advanced minimally invasive surgical tool available. Dr. Berg of Arcadia Ob/Gyn performs robotic surgery using the da Vinci® surgical system. This advanced tool allows Dr. Berg to perform even the most complex procedures through small incisions and with the use of tiny surgical instruments.
The surgical system is outfitted with interactive surgical arms, a camera, and a 3D image processing system. During surgery, Dr. Berg sits at the computer console and uses a special hand control that allows him to manipulate the interactive surgical arms, as well as the camera.
The interactive arms mimic his movements with precision and accuracy to perform your surgical procedure.

Robotic surgery offers benefits to you and Dr. Berg. Some of the most common include:
- Less scarring
- Less blood loss
- Reduced pain
- Faster recovery

Because of the clarity the robotic camera is able to produce, robotic surgery also allows for better visualization of the internal organs.
