Minimally invasive surgery

Minimally invasive surgery is an effective surgical method that is less intrusive than traditional surgery. By using small incisions and instruments, we are able to create positive surgical outcomes that typically have minimal scarring, faster recovery times and shorter hospital stays.

Robotic surgical services in Miami-Dade County

Having technology that allows for minimally invasive procedures can help you get back on your feet much quicker after surgery than a traditional procedure.

HCA Florida Kendall Hospital was accredited in 2023 as a Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery by the Surgical Review Corporation. The technology used in robotic surgery allows surgeons to operate with more accuracy, flexibility and control. Our surgeons at HCA Florida Kendall Hospital are highly trained in performing complex robotic surgery procedures, specializing in the gastrointestinal tract and abdominal wall, including hernia repair.

Minimally invasive robotic surgery gives surgeons the ability to perform procedures without large incisions. With a video monitor and surgical instruments on the robot's console, robotic "arms" create small incisions and maneuver at the surgery site, allowing for greater precision. Our hospital has one of the largest robotic surgery programs in Miami.
