The instruments are so gentle and delicate on the tissues. The visualization is amazing because you have basically 3D vision, 10 times magnified. It's gentle on the patient, on the tissues. Less blood loss, less bruising, less postoperative pain.
Even the nurses on the floor can tell that patients that have had that approach get up faster from the bed, and complain of less pain and have more mobility.
I'm almost at 2,500 cases. All of my patients are outpatients. Even the more difficult cases are what we call 23 observations. So they spend one night; the next day they go home.
