Minimally invasive surgery

Minimally invasive surgery is an effective surgical method that is less intrusive than traditional surgery. Minimally invasive surgery offers effective surgical outcomes with less pain, shorter recovery times and a lower complication rate.


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.

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.
