Benefits of Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery

The addition of robotic technology to the allows us to offer more and more complex procedures in a less invasive way. Read about conditions that can be treated with minimally invasive or robot-assisted surgical techniques.

What are the benefits of robot-assisted surgery?

  • The movement of the robot’s “arms” is very close to the true motion of a human wrist, making things like sewing easier to accomplish.
  • Robotic-assisted surgery can take less time even than laparoscopic surgical options. There is a relationship between time spent under anesthesia and complications after surgery. Faster surgery = less anesthesia and fewer complications.
  • Surgeons can see the surgical field in three dimensions, unlike with traditional laparoscopic surgery where there is no depth perception.
