During a robotic procedure, your surgeon uses hand controls to maneuver small surgical instruments. As your surgeon moves the controls, it is translated into the precise, real-time movements of the surgical instruments. Each movement is guided by a 3D image of the surgical area.
Benefits of robotic surgery
As opposed to traditional surgery, robotic instruments allow your surgeon to make fewer, smaller incisions to complete the operation. Additional benefits of robotic surgery include:
- Faster recovery and return to normal daily activities
- Less post-operative pain and discomfort
- Less risk of infection
- Less scarring
- Reduced blood loss and need for transfusions
- Reduced trauma to the body
- Shorter hospital stay
