      I apologize I did not read the entire question. I would definitely choose robotic surgery with a very experienced surgeon. the experience with the robotic machine is a must. with the high definition screens they can see things better and with the machine they can be more steady/accurate.

      i think questions you could ask include

      what will be my recovery time with robotic versus abdominal surgery?
      prognosis?
      potential complications?

      what is your experience with each technique?
      which do you recommend and why?

      based on what i've heard from others, robotic is the choice that gives you a shorter recovery time and fewer complications.

      good luck - this is a tough decision....
