Robot-assisted surgery improves recovery for patients

Robot-assisted surgery used to perform bladder cancer removal enables patients to recover far more quickly and spend significantly (20 per cent) less time in hospital, according to a first-of-its kind clinical trial led by scientists at UCL and the University of Sheffield.

The study, which was funded by The Urology Foundation, also found robotic surgery reduced the chance of re-admission by half (52 per cent). In addition, patients’ physical activity – assessed by daily steps tracked on a wearable smart sensor – stamina and quality of life also increased.
