Robotic Surgery
What are the benefits?

Robotic surgery is the most precise form of minimally invasive surgery. This means the surgeon can make a few tiny incisions instead of one large incision when accessing the body cavity. Robotic surgery differs from traditional laparoscopic surgery because surgeons are able to perform more complex procedures on more critical patients than previously possible.  

Patients experience many excellent benefits from robotic surgery including:

  • fewer complications
  • less blood loss, fewer transfusions
  • less scaring
  • less pain
  • shorter time spent in the hospital
  • quicker general recovery
