Hello,

Welcome to Just Answer:

It is important for your doctor/surgeon to discuss the amount of blood loss during the procedure compared to the standard procedure; the recovery time after the Divinci Robotic procedure compared to the standard procedure; the overall complication after this procedure compared to the standard procedure; and the overall outcome of the patients based on a known study - in order to justify the cost. Finally, what is the chance that Robotic device will malfunction during the procedure, and whether there is an automatic means to halt the Robotic device.
