Point-Counterpoint: Are there significant advantages for robotic vs. laparoscopic surgery for abdominal procedures?

The three-dimensional vision that we lost has been restored. We can put surgeons in a more comfortable position while operating.

But there aren’t any data that show beyond a doubt that robotic-assisted surgery results in decisively better patient outcomes – especially in abdominal operations, for which there is currently no indication.

The heart of the matter is value – which we can see as an equation of quality divided by outcomes and costs. With robotic…
