Robotic surgery is a type of minimally invasive surgery. “Minimally invasive” means that instead of operating on patients through large incisions, we use miniaturized surgical instruments that fit through a series of quarter-inch incisions.
During a robotic-assisted operation, your surgeon uses master controls to manipulate the instruments, and the instruments translate your surgeon’s movements into precise movements inside your body. Your surgeon is in control the whole time;
the surgical system responds to the movements of the doctor.
Your surgeon has greater range of motion and dexterity
Your surgeon operates in a highly-magnified, high-resolution field
Your surgeon has better access to the area being operated on
