Robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery has become the next major stage of advancement for a range of operations. The field of surgery has long worked to improve skills and tools to minimize the invasiveness of operations and to overcome the limitations of human surgical dexterity and access.It has done so while dealing with the challenges of visualizing internal structures and controlling the variability inherent in even the best human hand-eye-brain decisions and coordination. Robotic surgery is helping to surmount these factors.Listen in as Dr. Louis Fares explains that since launching its robotics program, Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center has gained a depth of experience in delivering robotic surgery.
