What’s robotic-assisted surgery?
During robotic-assisted surgery, your doctor controls robotic arms attached to very small surgical instruments. The arms mimic the motions of your doctor’s hands, but with greater precision, flexibility and dexterity. Your doctor operates the robot from a nearby computer console, using high-definition, magnified, 3D images of the surgical area.
Advantages of robotic-assisted surgery
If your procedure can be performed as a robotic-assisted surgery instead of traditional, open surgery, you may benefit from:
- Faster recovery
- Lower risk of infection and other complications
- Less pain and discomfort
- Less blood loss and fewer transfusions
- Shorter hospital stay
- Smaller scars
