One hallmark of da Vinci Robotic Surgery is that doctors can make fewer or much smaller incisions than are used in traditional open surgeries. Compared with open surgery, studies have shown da Vinci Robotic Surgery may result in:
- Shorter hospital stay
- Less blood loss
- Fewer complications
- Less need for narcotic pain medicine
- Faster recovery
- Smaller incisions for minimal scarring
Surgery with the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System is a type of minimally invasive surgery. Most major insurance plans include da Vinci Robotic Surgery in their minimally invasive coverage. Check with your insurance provider to confirm coverage.
