Compared with traditional open surgery, robotic surgery requires significantly smaller incisions. The potential benefits for patients include:
Using a da Vinci® robot, the surgeon makes a few small incisions in the abdomen using long, thin instruments and a tiny camera. The camera sends images to a video monitor in the operating room to guide your surgeon during the operation. The robot is designed to provide surgeons with enhanced capabilities, including high definition 3D vision and a magnified view. Your doctor controls the robot, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body. The robot cannot act on its own. Surgery is performed entirely by your doctor.
Talk to your doctor to decide if robotic surgery is right for you. As with any surgery, there are risks.
