Robotic surgery is a technique in which surgeons perform surgery using a computer that remotely controls minute instruments attached to a robot. With this revolutionary type of surgery, surgeons are able to perform many complex procedures with greater precision, flexibility and control than standard surgical techniques.
In robotic surgery, surgeons make a few short incisions instead of the single long incision made in open surgery, which usually results in less blood loss and reduced trauma, a shorter hospital stay and a quicker recovery. Most patients return to normal activities more quickly than after open surgery.
