The use of robotics, or computer enhanced technology in laparoscopic myomectomy facilitates suturing and uterine reconstruction similar to laparotomy and LAM. It provides a 3-D view, eliminates tremor by downscaling movements, and superior range of motion. This makes laparoscopic suturing more intuitive in contrast to the counter-intuitive environment of LM, allowing proper reconstruction of uterine wall defects and minimizing risk of complications.
