What is Robotic Surgery?

Robotics uses precise, versatile instrument movement combined with three-dimensional visualization of the operative site. Robotic surgery typically yields less physical and emotional impact than traditional surgery. During surgery, the surgeon is able to have a much better anatomical view of the patient, which puts the patient at less risk.

Robotic surgeries are performed through small incisions, which replace the large incisions needed for conventional open surgeries. Many of the patients who undergo Robotic Surgery typically experience less pain and are able to leave the hospital sooner. Other patient benefits include minimal scarring, less blood loss, faster recovery, less trauma and shorter hospital stays.
