Robotic surgery is an advanced surgical approach using sophisticated technology to perform minimally invasive procedures.
Robotic surgery offers patients several advantages:
- Surgeons are able to maneuver instruments into hard to reach areas, making it possible to perform more complex operations.
- Minor hand tremors are filtered out, further enhancing surgical precision and safety.
- Minimized blood loss
- Less post-operative pain
- Shorter hospital stays
- Faster recovery
GBMC offers a team approach to robotic surgery, with expert surgeons accompanied by a trained team of nurses and support staff, ensuring every patient receives the highest quality, personalized care.
