Frequently Asked Questions 

Q. Am I a Candidate for da Vinci Surgery?
A. Most patients qualify for da Vinci Surgery but it may not be right for everybody. Talk to your physician about whether robotic surgery is right for you and your condition.

Q. What are the benefits of da Vinci Surgery compared with traditional methods of surgery?
A. Some of the major benefits experienced by patients may include less pain, less blood loss, less scarring, faster recovery and a quicker return to normal daily activities. None of these benefits can be guaranteed, as surgery is necessarily both patient- and procedure-specific.

Q: Is da Vinci Surgery covered by insurance?
A. da Vinci Surgery is categorized as robot-assisted minimally invasive surgery, so any insurance that covers minimally invasive surgery generally covers da Vinci Surgery. This is true for widely held insurance plans like Medicare. It is important to note that your coverage will depend on your plan and benefits package.
