Patients who have had robotic and minimally invasive surgery reported high satisfaction thanks to:
- Tiny incisions through minimally invasive surgery
- Faster healing and less noticeable scars
- Shorter hospital stays
- Faster recovery time
- Decreased pain and better pain management
- Less blood loss during surgery – this reduces the need for blood transfusions and helps promote faster recovery
