Robotic surgery

Robot-assisted surgery allows the surgeon to perform a procedure through one or more small incisions, using a small video camera and thin instruments. The surgeon controls the robotic arms from an operating console, just feet away. With state-of-the-art technology, the surgeon can view the procedure through a video monitor providing a magnified view of the surgical site.

Most robot-assisted procedures are completed under general anesthesia and result in less recovery time for patients.

Complete care throughout your surgical experience 

We are here to provide compassionate, full-service surgical care. When possible, we encourage you to get to know your surgeon prior to surgery, so you are familiar with the person performing your procedure. 

Preoperative and postoperative care

In addition to getting acquainted with your surgeon and receiving preoperative instructions, your doctor may also order preoperative testing to determine the best plan for surgery. This may include routine blood tests, electrocardiography (EKG) or X-rays tests and a visit from an anesthesiologist. Preoperative testing is normally scheduled a few days prior to surgery.

You will also be provided with surgery-specific and general postoperative care instructions.
