Benefits

  • What are the benefits of robotic surgery?

    Although every patient and every surgery is unique, robotic surgery offers important advantages for patients and their doctors. Because trained surgeons can operate with greater precision using robotic surgery, it is considered the best surgical option for many conditions.

    For most individuals, benefits of robotic-assisted surgery include:

    • Smaller incisions and less scarring (Single-Site surgery possible)
    • Less pain and discomfort
    • Shorter hospital stay
    • Less blood loss and fewer transfusions
    • Fewer side effects and complications
    • Reduced risk of infection
    • Better outcomes
