A Note About Robotic Surgery

All surgeries, including those utilizing robotic technology, involve the risk of complications. While clinical studies support the effectiveness of the da Vinci surgical system when used in minimally invasive surgery for specific indications, individual results may vary. There are no guarantees of outcome. Before you decide on surgery, it is important to discuss treatment options with your doctor. Understanding the risks of each treatment can help you make the best decision for your individual situation. Surgery with the da Vinci surgical system may not be appropriate for every individual or applicable to your condition. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits. Only your doctor can determine whether this type of surgery is appropriate for your situation.
