Robotic Surgery in Mesa, Arizona

Serving Tempe, Grand Junction, Apache Junction, Gold Canyon, Casa Grande & Florence

Robotic surgery allows the team at Surgical Professionals to perform complex procedures with precision through tiny incisions. Dr. Brian S. Ju is the robotic surgeon at Surgical Professionals.

In many ways, robotic surgery can be considered advanced laparoscopic technology. It gives us considerable flexibility and control over every aspect of the procedure. Moreover, because the process involves the use of small incisions, small instruments, and tiny cameras, the recovery period is generally shorter than that of other surgical options. The company that manufactures the robotic surgery system has named their product “DaVinci.”

A common misconception is that robotic surgery is done automatically. Nothing could be further from the truth. Every single motion or action of the robotic instruments is controlled by the surgeon. THE ROBOT IS NOT CAPABLE OF DOING ANY PART OF YOUR SURGERY BY ITSELF. The surgeon sits at the control station and uses this to directly control every motion of the robot.

Contact Surgical Professionals at (480) 887-0047 to schedule a consultation to discuss robotic surgery in Arizona. We provide robot-assisted surgical services at many hospitals in East Valley, including hospitals in Mesa, Gilbert, Chandler, and Queen Creek.

Who Needs Robotic Surgery?

Robotic surgery is similar to laparoscopic surgery. It is ideal for procedures that require a high degree of precision while operating through very small incisions. The advantage of robotic surgery over traditional laparoscopic surgery is in the “wristed” instruments. Traditional laparoscopic instruments open and close. With the robot, we gain the additional ability to twist and turn our instrument tips inside the patient to perform procedures much more effectively than with traditional laparoscopy. Certain procedures clearly benefit from robotic surgery, while other procedures can be done just as well with the traditional approach.

There are many reasons why your physician may recommend robotic surgery to perform your procedure. We encourage all of our patients to discuss these with your surgeon before any surgical procedure.

Types of Robotic Surgeries We Offer in Mesa & Surrounding Areas

Many types of robotic surgeries are available to our patients. These include robot-assisted procedures on:

•  Colon, small bowel, and gastric surgery

•  Inguinal (groin) hernias

•  Ventral (abdominal wall) hernias

•  Gallbladders (in some cases)

The team at Surgical Professionals has extensive experience performing appendectomy, colectomy, colostomy, gastrectomy, splenectomy, and many other procedures, and we can tell you which procedures benefit from using robot-assisted technology. The techniques we utilize during these procedures help expedite recovery time, minimize scarring, and reduce pain.

Risks of Robotic Surgery

The risks of robotic surgery are similar to those of other surgeries. These include but are not limited to the risk of infection, allergic reaction to the anesthetic, blood clotting, and organ damage. The only additional risk associated with robotic surgery is the potential failure of the surgical equipment. This is extremely rare, and in the event of power loss, we can continue your surgery through traditional methods. The system is designed to freeze in place if there are any problems. If this very rare event occurs, we can unhook the robot and complete your surgery through traditional techniques.

We strive to minimize every potential hazard associated with the surgical procedures we perform. When necessary, we will obtain medical clearance from other specialists to further mitigate the risks to your health and recovery.

Recovering from Robotic Surgery

One of the primary advantages of robotic surgery is that it can significantly reduce your recovery time, and for many patients, reduce your post-operative pain. Following the procedure, your health will be monitored, and you will spend several hours in the post-op area. Our medical team will monitor your vital signs during this period. Depending on the type of surgical procedure, your recovery period can be as short as a few days or as long as a few months. Before the procedure, your surgeon will go over your recovery plan with you so that you will know what to expect as you rest and recover.

Dr Gray did an excellent job twice when my father had hernias. One was an emergency situation, and the other was not. Both times, Dr Gray showed expertise in diagnosing the problem, performing the surgery, setting our expectations and follow through after the procedure. I definitely would recommend him for your surgical procedures.

Dr. Ju saved my life. I had surgery back in 2010 (almost 10 years ago). He is an amazing surgeon with a wonderful concern for his patients. His staff were also very professional and caring during a very difficult time in my life. Thank you, Doctor Ju.

This Doctor saved my life and I have nothing but admiration for him. Dr. Brian Ju was my surgeon for the removal of my gall bladder 2 weeks ago. He is the most phenomenal and adept surgeon I’ve ever experienced. He even coordinated with the anesthesiologists to ensure that the anesthesia had anti-nausea elements because of my history with nausea!

I am not from the valley but was here to visit my son and his family. Dr. Gray and his staff were amazing in getting me in and actually scheduling my surgery the day after I had my first visit. The office staff – especially Alex is absolutely the BEST. Everyone is extremely efficient and at the same time – very caring. I can not thank Dr. Gray and his staff more! Very grateful and I wish I could package what you have going on and take it home with me! THANK YOU!!!!

I was fortunate have Dr. Ju for two surgeries. He was an excellent surgeon for one, and his bed side manor was outstanding. I felt very confident with Dr. Ju and his staff. If I were to have any procedures or surgeries done in the future, I would schedule them with Dr. Ju and the excellent staff at Surgical Professionals Inc. Thank you again to a wonderful professional staff.
