Robotic-assisted surgery is an advanced form of minimally invasive surgery that allows the surgeons to perform procedures through several ½-inch incisions rather than a traditional “open” incision that could be 6 inches or longer. In some cases, such as with gallbladder removal and benign hysterectomy, newer single-site instrumentation allows procedures to be performed through just one small incision in the belly button—making surgery virtually scarless!

The benefits of robotic surgery include:

  • Smaller incisions and less scarring
  • Less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • More precise outcomes
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Faster recovery
  • Fewer post-operative complications and infections

Adena surgeons are now performing robotic-assisted surgery for these procedures:

  • Hysterectomy
  • Prostatectomy
  • Gallbladder surgery
  • Nissen (surgery for reflux)
  • Hernia Surgery
  • Lobectomy and Wedge Resection
  • Pyeloplasty (surgery to remove blockages in the urinary system)
  • Kidney removal
  • Colon Resection
