Robotic Assisted Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopic surgery is a type of surgical procedure that allows the surgeon to access the inside of the abdominal cavity without having to make large incisions in the skin. Robotic assistance allows the surgeon to perform laparoscopic surgery with significantly improved safety and accuracy.

Robot-assisted surgery is a minimally invasive approach.

Robotic surgery allows doctors to perform many types of complex procedures with more precision, flexibility, and control than is possible with conventional techniques. Our surgeons have performed over 5,000 robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgeries resulting in decreased post-operative pain and quicker recoveries.

Robotic surgery is similar to laparoscopic surgery in that the surgeon places a miniature video camera and instruments through small incisions made in the abdominal wall. The difference is that the surgeon controls the camera and instruments from a computer console near the operating table. The instruments provide 360 degrees of wrist articulation and the console gives the surgeon a high-definition, magnified 3-D view of the surgical field resulting in increased precision and flexibility.

The most common general surgery procedures performed with robot assistance are gallbladder removal, hernia repair, colon resection, and removal of adrenal tumors.


Robotic surgery isn’t an option for everyone. Talk with your doctor about the benefits and risks of robotic surgery and how it compares with other techniques, such as other types of minimally invasive surgery and conventional open surgery.
