Desi studiile clinice sustin eficienta sistemului da Vinci cand este utilizat in chirurgia minim invaziva, rezultatele individuale pot varia. Chirurgia cu ajutorul sistemului da Vinci poate fi nepotrvita pentru anumite cazuri. Discutati cu medicul dumneavoastra despre optiunile terapeutice cit si despre riscurile si benficiile pe care la implica.
