Precision: Robot assisted surgery is performed in order to accomplish hysterectomy with minimally invasive method possible when abdominal hysterectomy must be done otherwise. Several small incisins are made in the abdomen and robotic instruments are placed through each incision and the surgeon actually performs the procedure remotely sitting at a surgeon's console controlling all robotic instruments.
