What is Robotic Surgery?

Surgeons use the da Vinci Surgical System to perform complex surgical procedures through tiny incisions. This is referred to as minimally invasive surgery. Laparoscopy is another form of minimally invasive surgery and refers to the use of an older technology consisting of long rigid instruments to perform surgery. Minimally invasive surgery has been proven to significantly decrease post-operative pain, infections and enhance recovery.
