Why is there less blood loss with robot-assisted surgery?
Robot-assisted surgery using the da Vinci system is minimally invasive. It operates through a few small incisions, and tissue damage is minimal. Small incisions mean considerably reduced blood loss compared to the large incision method used in open surgery.
There are also other reasons for less blood loss in robot-assisted surgery:
Less blood loss in robotic surgery helps you avoid infections and further complications, lowers the need for blood transfusion to almost 0%, and provides a faster recovery process.
