About Southern Cross Healthcare Robotic Surgery - Head & Neck
Robotically assisted surgery can offer significant benefits for patients
In the Auckland region, two of our hospitals currently offer facilities for leading surgeons trained and accredited to use sophisticated robotically assisted surgical systems. Our advanced da Vinci® technology offers skilled specialists advanced optics and precise control of surgical instruments while performing highly delicate procedures.
Robotic surgery may offer patients a minimally invasive option across a range of procedures, where this is judged appropriate for patients. In Auckland, a group of leading head and neck specialists access the da Vinci® systems available at our Brightside and North Harbour hospitals, offering services including trans-oral robotic surgery (TORS).
The benefits of robotic surgery for patients can include a shorter hospital stay, a faster recovery time, reduction in pain and reduced risk of complications.
General practitioners can contact accredited head and neck surgeons whose practice includes robotic surgery at our facilities in Auckland, for more detailed referral information.
