Robotic Surgery Leads to Faster Recovery Time

Diana Davis was preparing for a family vacation when she found out she had liver cancer caused by hepatitis C. At first, doctors thought she would need a liver transplant. Instead, through the UW Medical Center's Liver Tumor Clinic, a team of specialists provided  a personalized treatment plan using robotic surgery to remove the tumor. Dr. James Park, UW Medicine surgical oncologist, explains how the minimally invasive operation leads to faster recovery, and how it allowed Davis to walk two miles the same day of her surgery.
