What is Robotic Surgery?

Robotic surgery utilizes advancing technologies in robotics as a method of minimally invasive surgery when diagnosing and treating gynecologic conditions. Robotic surgery may provide surgeons with better precision through smaller incisions as compared to open surgery and conventional laparoscopy or hysterectomy. This allows doctors to perform even more complex and delicate procedures that may result in less pain, less recovery time and a shorter stay in the hospital.
