TRUE or FALSE: The surgeon is in a different room controlling the robot during robotic surgery? FALSE.  A common myth about robotic surgery is that the surgeon is performing the procedure from a different room. However, the surgeon always is in the room and the console that is used to control the robot is just a few feet away from the patient.

TRUE or FALSE: Robotic Surgery is more expensive than non-robotic surgery.

FALSE. A common myth about robotic surgery is that it costs A LOT more than traditional surgery and the truth is is that performing a knee replacement robotically is the equivalent price as traditional knee replacement surgery.  There is no additional cost to patient.
