The reimbursement to the surgeon is the same for laparoscopic and robotic, both of which can often get you back to work in 2 weeks (still no sex for 8 weeks.) those of us who have put in the time to learn robotic surgery do it because it is the best thing for our patients. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Lipoleimyoma. I just had a davinci hysterectomy because of one. I know they are rare. What will my doctor do with it?

Have in mind I am a Cardiologist ;) ...Read more
