Robotic surgery offers advantages including smaller incisions than open surgery, less blood loss, lower risk of blood transfusion, shorter hospital day, decreased need for pain medication, quicker recovery and return to normal function and decreased risk of wound infection or hernia. Rather than the surgeon holding the tools on long thin instruments themselves, the tools are connected to robotic arms and the robot is controlled by the surgeon.
