What is Robotic Surgery and its benefit?
Robotic surgery uses a high level computer system to enhance precision, control and dexterity during surgery. In a robotic surgical procedure, a computer is positioned between the surgeon’s hands and the tips of microinstruments, giving surgeons the control, range of motion and 3-D visualization characteristic of open surgery. The techniques allow the surgeon to operate through several small incisions about the size of a dime.
