The level of precision that doctors can perform surgery at directly correlates with the rate of recovery time.
The robotic procedure utilizes three to four robotic arms which are placed inside the patient through small incisions in their body. Three arms (1st is a camera, 2nd and 3rd are hands) are essential while the fourth is for the removal of blockage and is only used in certain cases. While robotic surgery might not have seemed like a realistic option before, there are definitely reasons why you should consider it now:
1. Smaller Incisions
Previously, surgeons only used their hands to perform surgery and this caused larger incisions. Hand-shaking was a problem that doctor’s faced when performing surgery, but robotic surgery eliminates that problem.
The main reasons that people opt for robotic surgery are because the areas that they need treated are difficult to reach and near major arteries and blood vessels, which is safer to operate on with robotics.
2. Quicker Recovery
Fewer holes means faster recovery. With robotic surgery, there is less pain and scarring after the surgery. Because of faster recovery, patients stay in the hospital for less time.
3. Lower Pain and Less Blood Loss
4. Lower Probability of Infection
Certain parts of the body get infected at a faster rate than others. Robotic surgery nearly eliminates the risk of infection due to the precision of the incision.
