Robot-assisted surgery

The Robotics Center at HCA Florida Lake Monroe Hospital equips our surgeons with robotic surgical systems for minimally invasive surgeries.

With robot-assisted surgical procedures, your surgeon has complete control over the robotic surgery system. The system translates the surgeon's hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny surgical instruments. The robotic surgery system allows our surgeons to perform complex, delicate procedures through just a few tiny incisions.

Our surgeons use robotic surgery to perform the following procedures:

  • General surgery
  • Gynecologic surgery
  • Spine surgery
  • Urologic surgery
Benefits of robotic surgery

Complicated procedures that typically require large incisions and significant recovery times can now be performed with robotic surgery.

Minimally invasive robotic surgery can offer patients many benefits, including:

  • Fast recovery times
  • Minimal pain
  • Minimal scarring
  • Short hospital stay
  • Small incisions
