Robotic surgery no better than traditional surgery, study finds

On the minus side, robotic surgery required a lengthier time on the operating table, the study found. And the robotic system used in almost all hospitals costs roughly $2 million to acquire and is expensive to run.

Dipen J. Parekh, lead author on the study, said the findings point to the need for rigorous study of surgical innovations like robotic surgery before they receive widespread adoption. “Just because something is new doesn’t necessarily mean it’s better,” Parekh said. At a time when health care costs are soaring, he said, it does not always make sense to have hospitals buy and use an expensive system when its effectiveness in many types of operations has not undergone thorough vetting. “We need to be making evidence-based decisions instead of marketing-based decisions, and to do that, you need data like what we produced in this study.”

Popular in urology, gynecology

In robotic surgeries, the machine allows surgeons to control robotic arms from a console and magnifies the surgical site on a large screen. For some procedures, the machine’s narrow arms and video scoping system allow the surgeon to make smaller incisions. The machines have become especially popular for gynecological and urological surgeries.

is it normal for my dog to lose bladder control after surgery?

I just got my dog neutered today and he has no control over his bladder. He has peed twice in the house without even realizing it - he is completely house broken and would not pee at home before the surgery. Is this normal? Should I be worried?


You should be worried if it continues for longer than a day. At this point, he is probably still quite groggy from the anesthetic and is still coming out of it. In addition, he was probably given IV fluids during the surgery, which will make him need


call the vet now. he shouldn't be doing that. maybe the vet did more than neuter him.

Anyone had the surgery for bladder control?

Has anyone had the surgery for bladder control. I can't do exercise especially running because i leak embarassingly. How long does the surgery take to recuperate from?


First of all you need to see your Doctor and he will try a medicine that might help and if not then surgery is the next option. I did have my bladder tied up and it took me about 6 weeks to completely recover. My Doctor told me that there was no guarantee
