What are the advantages of this technique?

Advantages and benefits: 

Laparoscopic surgery and robotic surgery are also called Minimally Invasive Surgery and offer a number of advantages over conventional surgery. They are constantly being improved with new devices and tweezers, resulting in better surgical patient care.


Learn about some advantages of robotic surgery and laparoscopy over conventional surgery:  


  • Less postoperative pain;

  • Shorter length of stay;

  • Best cosmetic result, with smaller scars;

  • Faster return to routine activities;

  • Lower surgical wound infection rate;



Virtually all health insurance plans cover videolaparoscopy surgery, however robotic surgery is not currently covered by health plans and entails a higher cost, usually paid directly to the hospital through the robotic fee. It is possible to perform almost all types of abdominal surgery by laparoscopic and robotic methods, being considered an advance in general and digestive surgery.

Finally, surgery minimally  it is not an experimental surgery. It has been performed for over 30 years in major medical centers around the world.

Cirurgia por Videolaparoscopia


  • Visão Bidimensional;

  • Câmera comandada pelo auxiliar e sem estabilidade;

  • Limitações na ergonomia dos movimentos;

  • Pinças retas e não articuladas;

  • Os tremores do auxiliar e do cirurgião são transmitidos diretamente à câmera e às pinças;

Cirurgia Robótica
