Why Robotic Surgery?

What are the advantages of robotic surgery?

One of the main advantages is that it enables surgery through smaller incisions.

Other advantages of robotic surgery include:

  • Greater precision: The robotic arm’s movements are more exact than a human hand. And their range of motion is greater. The arms rotate instruments in tight spaces in ways that aren’t otherwise possible.
  • Better visualization: A sophisticated camera provides magnified, high-definition views of the surgical area. It also has 3D capabilities for imaging that are superior to the naked eye.
  • Ability to do surgery inside the body: The small instruments allow surgeons to perform steps of the operation inside your body when traditionally, they would have had to make a much larger incision to do that part of the procedure outside of your body.

What are the benefits of robotic surgery?

With robot-assisted surgery, you may experience:

  • Less pain during recovery.
  • Lower risk of infection.
  • Reduced blood loss.
  • Shorter hospital stays.
  • Smaller scars.
