In general, robotic assisted surgery offers the following benefits over other methods:
- Less pain than traditional surgery
- Smaller incisions
- Quicker recovery time
- Less blood loss
- Decreased blood transfusion rate (less than 1% in a robotic assisted prostatectomy versus 10% to 40% in traditional prostatectomy)
- Decreased time under anesthesia
- Shorter hospital stays
- Less chance for infection
These benefits will vary depending on your individual circumstances, the type of procedure performed, as well as the experience of the surgeon.
Fortunately, at Bellin, our surgeons have the advantage of an unusually long history of applying the technology, as well as a steady volume of procedures. As a result, Bellin physicians have built up extraordinarily high levels of robotic assisted surgical skill.
