What is Robot-Assisted Surgery?

Posted on Updated on


Robot-assisted surgery allows doctors to perform many types of complex procedures with more precision, flexibility and control than is possible with conventional techniques. It is a minimally invasive surgery performed making a few small incisions.

Robotic hysterectomy uses a combination of high-definition 3D magnification, robotic technology and miniature instruments to enhance the doctor’s laparoscopic skills when removing a patient’s uterus and/or surrounding tissues.

The camera gives the surgeon enhanced detail, true depth of field and a panoramic view. The robotic hand has a broad range of movement. This means the doctor can see better, and work with exact precision to avoid injury to surrounding organs like the bladder, and other nerves and blood vessels.

What are the benefits of a robotic hysterectomy?

Robotic surgery reduces the size of incisions, while increasing the range of motion and creates better visibility. The doctor is able to use mechanical precision, which offers significant benefits for the patients, including:

  • Less blood loss
  • Less post-surgical pain/less medication
  • Quicker recovery and ability to return to normal activities
  • Less scarring
  • Less likelihood of complications
