Typically patients require shorter hospital stays, they experience faster recovery, less scarring, patients are at a decreased risk of infection, and return to normal daily activities sooner.
Benefits to the surgeon:
Visual magnification – use of a large viewing screen improves visibility
Stabilization Electromechanical damping of vibrations, due to machinery or shaky human hands
Visual magnification - use of a large viewing screen improves visibility
Stabilization – Simulators – use of specialized virtual reality training tools to improve physicians' proficiency in surgery
