Innovation at MercyAscot
We’re committed to delivering world-class healthcare and a great experience for every patient, which is why we are investing in the latest robotic technologies.
Robotic-assisted surgery is fast becoming a preferred option for patients having certain surgical procedures, and our leading robotically-trained surgeons are supported by highly-trained anaesthetists and clinical teams.
Robotic surgery, also called robotic-assisted surgery, allows surgeons to perform delicate and complex procedures with more precision, flexibility and control. The benefits for patients can include a shorter hospital stay, a faster recovery time, reduction in blood loss and pain, reduced risk of complications, and smaller and less noticeable scars.1
Robotic surgery at MercyAscot
We have invested in two orthopaedic robots - the VELYSTM Robotic Assisted Solution and the ROSA® Robotic Surgical Assistant - which are used by robotically-trained surgeons at both Mercy and Ascot Hospital for total knee replacement surgeries.
We also have a third robot - the da Vinci Xi Surgical System - which is used by our robotically-trained urology and gynaecology surgeons, including for patients with prostate cancer. The da Vinci is used for minimally invasive surgery where procedures are performed through small incisions.
