Benefits of Robotic Surgery
Not every patient can safely have robotic surgery, but if you can, research has shown that the benefits of robotic surgery, compared with surgery through an abdominal incision, can include:
- Shorter hospital stay.
- Shorter overall recovery time.
- Faster return to normal daily activities.
- Less blood loss.
- In many cases, better clinical outcomes.
- It also may make minimally-invasive surgery available to women who may not be candidates for traditional laparoscopic surgery because they are overweight or have adhesions from previous surgeries.
