What to expect with robotic surgery
Robot-assisted surgery is a type of minimally invasive surgery in which doctors use robotic technology to perform procedures. This technology allows for enhanced imaging and increased accuracy both before and during the procedure.
Specifically, during a robot-assisted surgical procedure, a highly experienced, specially trained surgeon uses an advanced computer system to control robotic arms. The surgeon controls these arms from a console placed just a few feet away from the operating table. The robot has tiny surgical instruments and a high-definition, 3D camera, which aids in an efficient, successful procedure.
