Robotic surgery, or robot-assisted surgery, allows doctors to perform many types of complex procedures with more precision, flexibility and control than is possible with conventional techniques. Robotic surgery is usually associated with minimally invasive surgery – procedures performed through tiny incisions. It is also sometimes used in certain traditional open surgical procedures.
The Da Vinci Xi Robotic System will provide a number of benefits over conventional surgery including:
- Shorter patient stay – 3 versus 6 days
- Decrease in age of patients being referred for surgery
- Smaller, less painful incisions – big benefit to patient
- Quicker return to work
- Cost effectiveness
- A huge additional benefit sits in the ability to use the dual console for training purposes
The benefits of a robot over conventional surgery will be seen in the areas of urology, colorectal, cardiac and thoracic cancer.
