"The use of robotics continues to take minimally invasive techniques into a new era." shared Chief of Surgery Dr. Sharla O. Sundberg. "Robotically-assisted minimally invasive surgery takes surgery beyond the limits of the human hand, and offers greater precision and dexterity which can result in less pain and recovery time for our patients."

What is Robotic Surgery and how can it help me?

Robotic Surgery is a less invasive technique than traditional surgery. The cuts (incisions) made in your body by your surgeon can be much smaller than the cut made during traditional (also called "open") surgery. Compared with open surgery, having Robotic Surgery may offer you:

  • A shorter hospital stay
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer complications
  • Less need for narcotic pain medicine
  • A faster recovery
  • Smaller incisions for minimal scarring
