  • Single-site cholecystectomy
  • Full or partial pancreas removal, or pancreatectomy
  • Full or partial stomach removal, or gastrectomy
  • GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) treatment and hiatal hernia repair, or Nissen fundoplication
  • Spleen removal, or splenectomy
  • Heller myotomy
  • Pyloroplasty
  • Colon and rectal surgery
  • Hernia repair: Inguinal hernia, ventral hernia, umbilical hernia
  • Weight-loss surgery: Roux-en-Y, gastric sleeve

Robotic-assisted surgery is often preferred when surgery is intricate or complex. It allows surgeons to make smaller incisions and be more precise. Magnified, high-resolution 3D images help surgeons better visualize the treatment area and give them more control over procedures. Members of our team have been performing robotic-assisted surgeries for more than a decade.

 

Studies show robotic-assisted surgery provides patient outcomes that are equal to or better than open surgery.

 

The benefits include:

  • Shorter recovery time
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Significantly less pain
  • Less bleeding and scarring
  • Reduced risk of infection or other complications

Aurora BayCare Urological Surgeons and Aurora BayCare Gynecologic Oncology also use robotic surgery for some procedures.
