Scottsdale, AZ (PressExposure) October 10, 2009 -- The feats of medical science today always astound people. The latest technological developments in the medical field have put tremendous power in the hands of the doctors. One of the latest developments that is becoming increasingly popular is Robotic Surgery. Though it is becoming increasingly popular in the medical circles, not many people are aware of the benefits of robotic surgeries.
Today robotic surgery is used for performing number of major as well as minor operations. Some of the areas where robotic surgery is used include heart surgery, prostrate surgery and kidney operation Robotic surgeries are less invasive and hence the recovery time is faster. Robotic surgeries reduce the number of medical staff that need to be present during a surgery. The surgeon performs the surgery remotely at the computer console. The incisions made for robotic surgeries are tiny and they are made with a high level of precision using robotic arms.
Using robotic surgery prostate cancer can be treated effectively. However, the experience of the surgeon plays a great role in the success of the surgery. Dr. Michael McDonald is one of the few robotic surgery specialists in Florida. He is a Board Certified Urologist. He practices robotic surgery at the Celebration Hospital Florida. He has helped hundreds of patients through his skillful robotic prostate and kidney surgeries. He is specially trained in minimal invasive urologic surgeries and he uses the da Vinci Robot to perform his robotic surgeries.
He specializes in Robotic Partial Nephrectomy, Robotic Prostatectomy, Robotic Sacrocolpopexy, Robotic Adrenalectomy, Robotic Lymph Node dissection for Testicular Cancer, Robotic Pyeloplasty. He has more experience in this field than any other robotic surgeon in the greater Orlando area. As he uses minimal invasive techniques, most of his patients go home the next day after the surgery, which is not possible with the regular open surgeries. Patients will be able to return to work in as short as two weeks time. Dr. Michael McDonald prefers to use the robotic approach because of its success rate and better recovery periods. Patients bleed far less in robotic surgeries and the postoperative pain and trauma are far lesser than laparoscopic surgeries.
He has performed over 400 successful laparoscopic and robotic surgeries and this has certainly given him a vast experience because each medical case is unique though the name of the surgery remains the same. The discretion level of the surgeon improves with experience and Dr. Michael McDonald having mastered robotic surgery skills, combines his personal expertise in helping his patients with total dedication. He suggests only what is best for his patients. He always acts with the best interests of his patients in mind and is never commercially motivated.
