Robotic surgery is a type of minimally invasive surgery that uses a computer-assisted technology to aid in surgical procedures. Rather than operating on patients through large incisions, surgeons use miniaturized surgical instruments that fit through a series of small incisions to reduce scarring and recovery time.
During surgery, the surgeon operates from a computer console, making dime-sized incisions and guiding the robotic arms, with attached instruments and a tiny camera to more closely view the operating area. This camera can magnify the body’s organs and other structures by 10 times – a larger field than most laparoscopic surgeries, which provide doctors with 4x magnification. This technique supports greater precision and efficiency, and ultimately, better results for the patient.
Robotic surgery may offer several benefits for patients, including:
