How Much Does The Da Vinci Surgical Robot Cost?

Posted by Adam Pick on September 16th, 2008

The use of robots for minimally invasive heart valve surgery continues to rise.

“You can really minimize the extent of trauma with the robot”, says Dr. Jeffrey Everett, from the University of Tennessee. “The big thing for patients is recovery time. If we do the surgery with the da Vinci, patients can resume full activity in a couple of weeks versus probably three to four months for open heart procedures.”
