Our minimally invasive treatments and services

Whether you have a cardiac condition or need to lose weight, our team of surgeons can help.

Our robotic surgical system enables our surgeons to operate with enhanced vision, precision and control. During a procedure, our system translates your doctor's hand movements into small, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body. The system provides surgeons with high-definition 3D vision, allowing them to see with greater depth and clarity.

Our surgery team performs many types of procedures using robotic technology, including:

  • Bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery)
  • Cardiovascular surgery
  • Colorectal surgery
  • Gallbladder surgery
  • General surgery
  • Thoracic surgery
  • Urogynecologic surgery
  • Urologic surgery

Vascular robotics

As the first hospital in the Tampa Bay area to offer robot-assisted surgery for coronary and vascular interventions, our robotic surgery system combines the benefits of coronary angioplasty with the precision of robotics to help widen clogged arteries and restore healthy blood flow to the heart.

This robotic surgery system allows interventional cardiologists, vascular surgeons and interventional radiologists to perform procedures with greater precision, allowing for catheter, guidewire, balloon and stent guidance.

Robotic surgery benefits

With our system, surgeons can perform advanced procedures with only a few small incisions.

Additional benefits of robotic surgery include:

  • A radiation-free workstation
  • Decreased blood loss
  • Fast recovery and return to normal daily activities
  • Less postoperative pain and discomfort
  • Less scarring
  • Reduced blood loss and trauma to the body
  • Shorter hospital stay
