Robotic Surgery with the da Vinci(R) Surgical System is a less invasive technique than traditional surgery. The cuts (incisions) made in your body by your surgeon are much smaller than the cut made during traditional (also called “open”) surgery. Compared with open surgery, having Robotic Surgery may offer you:
- A shorter hospital stay
- Less blood loss
- Fewer complications
- Less need for narcotic pain medicine
- A faster recovery
- Smaller incisions for minimal scarring
