- A shorter hospital stay
- Less blood loss
- Fewer complications
- Less need for narcotic pain medicine
- A faster recovery
- Smaller incisions associated with minimal scarring
Most major insurance plans cover robotic surgeries performed using da Vinci, but you should contact your insurance provider to confirm coverage.
