“With this designation, our team has the opportunity to share knowledge with other surgeons that will benefit patients in their communities,” said Dr. Wilson Tsai, Co-Medical Director, Thoracic Surgical Program. “For many patients that choose robotic-assisted surgery, the less invasive procedure can mean a shorter recovery time that allows them to go home and get back to their life quicker.”
Every surgery comes with some risk of complications and this is true even when working with the best surgeons and the most advanced technology. Always discuss these risks with your doctor to determine if robotic-assisted surgery is best for you.
