Robotic surgery is used in the otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat) subspecialty to treat head and neck tumors as well as sleep apnea. Robotic surgery produces smaller incisions using methods that avoid scarring, minimizes complications, and reduce length of recovery.
General Advantages of Robotic Surgery
For most patients, minimally invasive procedures performed using robotic surgery can offer numerous potential benefits, including:
- Shorter hospital stay
- Less pain and scarring
- Less risk of infection
- Less blood loss and fewer transfusions
- Faster recovery
- Quicker return to normal activities
