In brief: Medication list

You doctor will have supplied a current history and physical exam report to the surgery center prior to your surgery.
Your medications may change, so bring them and/or a current list of all your medications with you.

In brief: Your medical history

As my colleagues stated bring your concerns, medication list and share your history.
This should be no different than any visit to the doctor. Also bring your questions, any imaging studies like an ultrasound or MRI if done. Share what treatments you have had. What you will consider, and what you won't.

In brief: No difference

Robotic surgery is no different from traditional surgery with respect to patient preperation.
The roboto is a tool (just like a scalpel) - just a complicated tool that surgeons use to minimize morbidity. To prepare, bring what you would normally bring - an understanding of your past medical and surgical history.
