Pancreatic surgery, complex biliary surgery, and hernia surgery are procedures used in treating conditions affecting these vital organs. These surgical procedures vary in complexity depending on the extent of the disease process. Robotic surgery is a newer surgery technique used in these procedures. New medical technology has enabled minimally invasive robotic surgery for use in pancreatic, complex biliary, and hernia surgeries. The surgeon uses a robotic arm with a camera and surgical equipment to get to the diseased tissue without the need for open cuts, but through several small incisions. When technically practical, minimally invasive repair (robotic) is preferred because of the reduced rate of complications after surgery, faster recovery, less pain, and returning to work earlier. It is more accurate, less traumatic, and allows faster healing.
