Why Robotic Surgery?
Many patients have questions about robotic surgery and its benefits. The best way to describe robotic surgery is an extremely precise surgical tool that allows for increased accuracy and less risk during intricate surgeries. The robotic revolution in general surgery allows surgeons to perform complex surgeries in small spaces with improved results. Danny Shouhed, M.D. is one of the top robotic general surgeons in the country with extensive experience in this advanced field of surgical technology.
In robotic surgery, all movements are controlled by the surgeon. The robotic arms are just an extension of the surgeon’s hands, reaching small, tight spaces that are difficult to navigate with the human hand. The robotic system also includes software that incorporates imaging to enhance accuracy during the procedure while reducing damage to the surrounding tissue. While this technology offers many advantages to patients, it requires extensive training and practice to gain the skills to use in surgical procedures.
Why Is Robotic Surgery Better Than Laparoscopic Surgery?
