diastasis recti and robotic surgery: cost
What are the prices of robotic surgery for diastasis recti ?
Dr. Darecchio, a pioneer in robotic surgery for rectus abdominis diastasis currently has the most experience in the field, with the most patients operated on ever. Frequently, people with rectus abdominis diastasis wonder how much a surgery performed by him can cost. Obviously it is not possible to answer this question before a careful examination and evaluation of the specific case, but we will try to give a general orientation anyway.
The clinics that house the operating rooms where Dr. Darecchio operates are undoubtedly very high-profile private clinics whose high hospitalization costs are a function of the services offered.
Robotic surgery relies on the use of sophisticated instrumentation that, in addition to ahigh initial cost, has high maintenance costs and procedure-specific prices for each use. Each procedure for the reconstruction of a diastasis recti in fact requires a specific Kit of devices to be applied to the robotic platform. These aspects purely related to instrumentation mean that the price of robotic surgery performed by Dr. Darecchio is already higher than other non-robotic techniques.
The patient's specific clinical case is an important variable on which the written estimate will be based following the first visit with Dr. Darecchio. There is in fact a great variability from patient to patient both in the entity of the pathology and in his previous clinical history, greatly conditioning the operating time and the type of work to be performed.
Robotic surgery also requires large and specific operating room staff such as nurses and highly skilled technicians who are also part of theteam. This factor also affects the final cost of an abdominal reconstruction procedure performed by Dr. Darecchio.
