Robotic surgery allows surgeons to perform complex surgical tasks through tiny incisions using robotic technology. Robotic surgery is a form of laparoscopic or minimally invasive surgery that utilizes a robot to assist the surgeon in completing a procedure. This provides surgeons with better accuracy, flexibility and control. Broadlawns Surgery Department has two types of robotic surgery systems—Da Vinci and Mako.
