Robotic Surgery

At Prisma Health, robotic-assisted surgery places us at the forefront of advances that make surgery easier and more effective. Our da Vinci® Surgical System can replace traditional, open surgery – which requires weeks of recovery and higher risks.

In fact, treating some delicate or complex conditions was nearly impossible before this method became available.

Understanding robotic-assisted surgery

The da Vinci® Surgical System is designed with high-definition 3D vision and a greatly magnified view. It allows our surgeons to see the site more clearly compared with traditional techniques. It also enhances precision, flexibility and control. The surgeon can make just a few tiny openings and repair areas of the body that are not easily accessible.

Even when used with traditional surgery, robotic-assisted surgery can improve your outcomes.

Benefits of robotic surgery

Experience faster, easier recovery:

  • Less anesthesia used
  • Smaller surgical incisions (typically 1–2 cm)
  • Reduced blood loss and need for transfusions
  • Less postoperative pain, discomfort and scarring
  • Lower risk of infection
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster recovery and return to normal daily activities
