What is robotic-assisted surgery?
Robotic-assisted surgery is a form of minimally invasive surgery, or laparoscopic surgery. Minimally invasive surgery techniques allow a surgeon to make a few tiny incisions that provide access to most areas of the body. Utilizing tools that contain a video camera and thin instruments, the surgeon performs the procedure through the tiny incisions. Robotic-assisted surgery, simply allows the surgeon to use an advanced set of tools to perform the minimally invasive procedure. These tools allow a surgeon to perform techniques that are beyond the capabilities of the human hand.
