The term “robotic surgery” is somewhat of a misnomer because the surgeon, rather than the equipment, is in charge throughout the procedure. With robotic surgery, a urologist can perform complex, minimally invasive procedures. Unlike traditional laparoscopic surgery; however, the urologist also has the benefit of superior 3D visualization and a full range of movement of the surgical instruments.
To hear more about this advancement in urologic surgeries, watch this interview with Dr. Matt Hassan of Urology Associates, P.C. He explains how the technology works and describes some of the conditions he can treat with robot-assisted surgery, including prostate cancer and kidney cancer.
