About Robotic-Assisted Surgery

Robotic surgery is an advanced form of minimally invasive or laparoscopic (small incision) surgery where surgeons use a computer-controlled robot to assist them in certain surgical procedures. The robot’s “hands” have a high degree of dexterity, allowing surgeons the ability to operate in very tight spaces in the body that would otherwise only be accessible through open (long incision) surgery. This technique offers many benefits to patients compared to open surgery, including:

  • Shorter hospitalization

  • Reduced pain and discomfort

  • Faster recovery time and return to normal activities

  • Smaller incisions, resulting in reduced risk of infection

  • Reduced blood loss and transfusions

  • Minimal scarring
