Trios using robot to improve surgery for patients

Posted July 28

— Trios Health is now using a high-tech robot to change the way it does surgery.

The local medical center recently obtained a Da Vinci Surgery robot, which uses magnified three-dimensional vision and tiny wristed instruments that "bend and rotate far greater than the human hand," according to the company's website.

Not only does it benefit surgeons, it also helps patients get back to full health quicker than before.

"The recovery time and the pain after this type of surgery is very minimal and the patients are very happy and very satisfied," according to a Trios spokeswoman.

Trios hopes to attract more surgeons to use the Da Vinci robot so they can offer more options to patients in the future. It hopes to offer those services to broaden the scope of surgery available in the community.
