Disadvantage  High cost and technology requirement.  Special skills required for its use.  Not suitable to perform complicated surgeries.  May need secondary open surgery.

Precaution After Surgery  It is safe to resume normal activities when you feel able.  Do not drive for 24 hours or until after you have stopped your narcotic pain medicine since you will be drowsy. If your stomach is sore enough to limit motion of your legs, wait to drive until the soreness subsides.
