Summary
Less bleeding, less infection, shorter hospital stays-robot-assisted surgery offers these and other benefits, and will probably become the standard in time. This program educates viewers about robotic surgery, focusing on two difficult procedures-prostatectomy and heart bypass surgery-that robotic support has vastly improved. Featuring the da Vinci robot, which gives doctors remote surgical capability and ultra-fine dexterity, the program offers the expert testimony of Dr. Jonathan Hwang of Washington Hospital Center, Dr. Farzad Najam of George Washington University Medical Center, and Dr. Robert Poston of the University of Maryland School of Medicine. A helpful prostatectomy case study is included.
