Benefits of robotic surgery

Robotic surgery allows our surgeons to perform complex procedures with minimal incisions. The robotic system translates the surgeon’s hand movements into smaller, more precise maneuvers.

Robotic surgery offers many benefits over traditional surgery, including:

  • Faster recovery
  • Fewer compliations
  • Less pain and bleeding
  • Less scarring
  • Lower risk of infection
  • Minimal trauma to surrounding tissues
  • Shorter hospital stay
