Q: Will my insurance cover my surgery if it is robot-assisted?
A: Once your insurance approves your surgery, it will be covered. The robot is simply a tool used by your surgeon to improve the outcome for your surgery.
Q: Can the surgeon feel anything inside the patient's chest or abdomen while performing robotic surgery?
A: Yes. The system relays force feedback sensations from the operative field back to the surgeon throughout the procedure. Force feedback provides a substitute for tactile sensation.
Q: Have robotic surgical systems been approved by the FDA?
A: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved robotic surgical systems for a wide range of procedures.
