Benefits of Robotic Surgery
The advantages of robotic-assisted surgery include
a tremendous enhancement in surgeons' control
of the instruments and the ability to perform
more intricate procedures. The robotic arms
even filter minute tremors of the human hand
to provide a greater degree of steadiness.
patients, the results of robotic-assisted surgery
- Less post-operative pain
- Less risk of infection
- Less anesthesia
- Less blood loss
- Shorter hospital stay
- Faster and more
- Quicker return to normal daily
Enhanced Control for Better Results
Because of its many benefits, robotic-assisted
surgery has gained increased popularity among
the medical community in recent years. But technology
is only as good as the hands that control it.
And just as high performance race cars are meant
to be driven by professional drivers, surgery-assisting
robotic technology is meant to be operated by
skilled and experienced surgeons.
While more and more hospitals are adopting robotic-assisted
surgical technology, the robotic
surgery program at Penn is already home to eight
da Vinci® Robotic
Surgical Systems and staffed by surgeons who
far exceed the recommended level of experience
required for its use.
