TALK! “Robotic surgery helps you return to your life fast”
Under the da Vinci Surgical System, surgeons use the robotic arm that prevents the tremors of their hands, and thus can successfully perform delicate microsurgeries. Involving a small incision and causing less hemorrhage than in an open surgery, robotic surgery lowers the risk of complications and infections.
