Robotic systems have reduced human intervention and increased accuracy in the procedure, resulting in better outcomes and significant improvement in the quality of life of patients.”

Artificial intelligence, automation, reduced human intervention in the system, accurate assessment of the overall position due to pre-operative 3D imaging, surgical preparation can result in better accuracy in actual surgical procedures. All this can lead to minimal bleeding, shorter hospital stays and faster recovery.
