Robotic surgery prevails

18 Jan 2013

Dr Stricker performed just over 250 surgical cases in 2012, one of the largest series in Australasia. When asked about the breakdown between robotic and open, he said that as per previous years over 200 were robotic. Given the outcomes, he believes it wil continue as a favoured choice for surgical treatment. Dr Stricker has now performed over 1,000 robotic cases.
