Robotic Surgery and Its Impact For the Future
Robotic surgery is a type of minimally invasive surgery, which means that instead of operating on patients through large incisions, mini-size surgical instruments that can fit through a series of quarter-inch incisions are used. Robotic surgery, or robot-assisted surgery, allows doctors to perform many types of complex procedures with more precision, flexibility and control than is possible with conventional techniques. Today we learn what this could mean for people who may have surgery in the future. Join us for a discussion with Dr. Steven Kelly, General Surgeon, Aultman Medical Group General Surgery.
