Robot-assisted surgery is a type of minimally invasive surgery. In minimally invasive surgery, doctors use a variety of techniques to operate with less damage to the body than with open surgery. In general, minimally invasive surgery is associated with less pain, a shorter hospital stay and fewer complications. [MayoClinic.org]
