Deşi studiile clinice susţin eficieţa sistemului da Vinci când este utilizat în chirurgia minim invazivă, rezultatele individuale pot varia. Chirurgia cu ajutorul sistemului da Vinci poate fi nepotrvită pentru anumite cazuri. Discutaţi cu medicul dumneavoastră despre opţiunile terapeutice cît şi despre riscurile şi benficiile pe care la implică.
