Robotic systems may be utilized to improve on the methods used in minimally-invasive surgery. By means of robotic surgery, invasiveness is further minimized. When surgeons employ robotic surgery, which also an option at the Baylor Scott & White Surgical Group of North Texas, they are able to achieve greater levels of precision and visualization when operating on a patient. Robotic systems allow surgeons to see the patient’s organs in three dimensions. Mechanical arms, controlled precisely by specially-designed computer software, replace hand movements. Robotic surgery provides for greater precision, smaller incisions, and improved recovery times post surgery.
