Have any of you had endo removed using Davinci robotic surgery? My Dr. would like to use this method with my next lap. I've had two previous laps done by a differnt RE without the Davinci.

I am currently checking to see if my insurance will cover the technology. If it's worth it, I'll switch insurances, but maybe a good surgeon is just as good without it.

You may see this question on other boards, apologizes for the repeat post. So far I haven't found anyone who has any experience with this and yet every hospital around me has this technology. I'm just wondering why more RE's don't use it.
