About Robotic Surgery Robotic surgery, or robot-assisted surgery, allows our surgeons to perform many types of complex procedures with more precision, flexibility and control than is possible with conventional techniques. Robotic surgery is an advanced form of minimally invasive or laparoscopic (small incision) surgery where surgeons use a computer-controlled robot to assist them in certain surgical procedures.

Our specially trained surgeons can use the da Vinci System to perform complex surgeries with a minimally invasive approach that disturbs less tissue surrounding the area being worked on, minimizing and controlling bleeding. The robotic surgical system includes a camera arm and mechanical arms with surgical instruments attached to them. The surgeon controls the arms while seated at a computer console near the operating table. The console gives the surgeon a high-definition, magnified, 3-D view of the surgical site. The robot's "hands" have a high degree of dexterity, allowing surgeons the ability to operate in very tight spaces in the body that would otherwise only be accessible through open (long incision) surgery. The surgical team supervises the robot at the patient's bedside.
