The precise control that robotic-assisted surgery provides is ideal for delicate procedures on smaller patients. It also has the potential to reduce physical and emotional stress for children and their families.
The use of robotic-assisted surgery in the treatment of children is one of the most compelling applications of robotic-assisted surgery. The minimization of trauma, incision size and the resulting scarring are significant advantages provided by a less invasive surgical approach. Robotic-assisted surgery provides the further advantages of a motion scaling and tremor reduction that are critical in work in and around the small anatomical structures of infants and children.
At the University of Vermont Children's Hospital we are successfully integrating robotics into our treatment of pediatric urologic conditions, allowing us to extend the benefits of minimally invasive procedures to children and their families.
At The UVM Children's Hospital, we perform the following procedures for children:
