Mayo Clinic researchers study new techniques and types of robotic surgery to treat a variety of conditions. They also study the outcomes of robotic surgery compared with other techniques, such as minimally invasive surgery done by hand and conventional open surgery. Research helps you and your doctors determine the best treatment approach for your condition.
See a list of publications by Mayo doctors on robotic surgery on PubMed, a service of the National Library of Medicine.
