The benefits of robotic procedures

  • A robot allows greater surgical precision. The robot holds miniature instruments and can be manipulated with more agility and in ways impossible for a human hand.
  • Robotic surgery is "laparoscopic," meaning minimally invasive, when compared to traditional "open" surgery. Instead of one long incision, the surgeon makes smaller incisions that are a mere 1/4- to 1/2-inch in length. Minimally invasive surgery, as compared to open surgery, results in:
  • Less blood loss
  • Reduced chance of infection
  • Less prominent scarring
  • Shorter hospital stay and recovery time
  • For most patients, minimally invasive surgery also yields less pain, reducing the need for pain medication and minimizing the length of time you'd need to take it.
  • All this can lead to much shorter recovery times and a quicker return to normal activities.
