About Robotic Surgery

During the last decade, urologists worldwide have witnessed a tremendous development of laparoscopic surgical treatment due to the development of robot-assisted surgery in many urological diseases. Robotic-assisted laparoscopic techniques have emerged allowing surgeons to more readily overcome the difficult learning curve and shorten operative times in minimally invasive abdominal and pelvic operations. Robot-assisted surgery is a well-established indication in Urology. It is being increasingly used in the treatment of benign as well as malignant diseases in urology.
