Maria Jana Kingsley-Godwin

 

 

ABSTRACT

 

Objective To explore the opinions and experience of surgeons and experts in improving quality of life and saving lives of patients using the robotic surgical technology.

 

Methods –   The opinions of 12 expert surgeons on the benefits of the robotic surgical technology were explored, collated and summarized in order to find out about the benefits of the technique.

 

Results – The consensus findings from the study showed that the benefits of robotic surgery include a faster return to daily activities for patients; fewer complications of the procedures; shorter hospital stays; reduced hospitalisation costs; reduced trauma; significantly less pain; and less scarring.

 

Conclusions – It was noted that the benefits of robotic surgery include a faster return to daily activities; fewer complications; shorter hospital stays; reduced hospitalisation costs; reduced trauma; significantly less pain; and less scarring. However, it would also be beneficial to analyse the disadvantages and demerits of the robotic surgery techniques, which will provide information that will be available for patients and their families in making informed decisions about opting for the robotic surgery technique.
