Robotic Assisted Surgery | Houston Methodist

Robotic-assisted surgery is a minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery that uses a robotic interface to control surgical instruments. With this specially designed system, the surgeon gets a magnified, three-dimensional view of the surgical area and is able to maneuver instruments more precisely during complex and delicate procedures.After making a few small incisions, each about the size of a dime, the surgeon inserts special tools called trocars that are equipped with small surgical instruments
