Robotic surgery is a less invasive alternative to traditional surgical procedures that can provide patients with fewer postoperative complications. In this video, Dr. Acosta discusses how robotic surgery can address even sizable surgical problems.
In the past, a medical procedure such as the removal of a internal growth would require an incision large enough to accommodate the size of the tumor. Robotic surgery can now treat this problem with significantly smaller incisions that leave less scar tissue and produce fewer side effects. Patients who undergo robotic surgery tend to experience less pain and heal more quickly, making this procedure an attractive option for individuals who require invasive treatment.
