Minimally invasive surgery in Tallahassee, FL

While having surgery can be a stressful experience, our team is here to support you and focus on getting you back to your daily life as soon as possible.

One of the ways HCA Florida Capital Hospital does this, is by providing you with access to minimally invasive procedures, including robot-assisted surgery. With robotic technology, our surgeon's hand movements are seamlessly translated to the robotic system into precise movements. Similar to other minimally invasive alternatives, such as laparoscopy, this approach often enables you to have more positive postoperative results and a faster recovery.

Our minimally invasive treatments and services

Our team of surgeons uses robotic surgical systems to assist with various surgeries, including:

  • Gynecologic surgery
  • Spine surgery
  • Urologic surgery

Robotic technology for knee and hip replacement

We offer robot-assisted surgery for total hip, total knee and partial knee replacements. Using computerized tomography (CT) scanning, our orthopedic surgeons create a 3D model of your anatomy to allow them to make a personalized surgical plan before surgery. That plan includes implant size, orientation and alignment. This type of technology promotes better outcomes for hip and knee replacements.

Benefits of robotic surgery

Minimally invasive robotic surgery can offer you many benefits compared to traditional open surgery.

If you undergo a robot-assisted procedure, you have many advantages, including:

  • Faster return to daily activities
  • Minimal scarring
  • Reduced pain
  • Shortened recovery time
