General Robotic Surgery
Highly precise surgery, gentler on the body
At St. Elizabeth Hospital and Mercy Medical Center, general surgeons are raising the standard on laparoscopic surgery. We now offer robotic surgery, a breakthrough in minimally invasive surgery options. This amazing technology allows our surgery team to be in full control, but with greatly enhanced precision using tiny and highly accurate instruments.
Robotic surgery is gentler on your body and offers incredible benefits including a faster recovery time, smaller incisions, and less bleeding and pain. Many patients go home the same day and return to normal activities faster than expected.
Our surgeons perform several types of robotic surgeries, including:
- colon resection
- polyp removal
- diverticulitis surgery
- nissen fundoplication
Robotic surgery is especially beneficial for patients who have scarring or complicated surgical needs, or for those who are overweight.
