It will depend on the patient. If the patient has money then why not go for a robot assisted hysterectomy but if there are no funds then the cheaper one can be the option.

Yes, it is true that robotic hysterectomy is becoming popular but there are factors that may affect the outcome of a robotic hysterectomy, such as the patient's medical history. However, all surgeries have side-effects and robotic surgery is no exemption to that. It is always important for a patient to consult a doctor and discuss the benefits and risks of robotic surgery. This will help the patient to know if robotic surgery is the best treatment option. There are articles that I bumped into at http://www.davincilawsuit.us/ that may be of great help to you.
