Minimally invasive procedures allow for the same positive outcomes as their open surgery counterparts, but with faster recovery times, shorter hospital stays, less pain and less blood loss. Your well-being is our primary concern, so speak with your doctor about all available surgery options before your procedure, no matter the specialty.

  • Arthroplasty
  • Bone grafts
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Correction of foot abnormalities
  • Joint replacements surgery, including hip and knee

Benefits of robotic surgery

Robotic technology takes surgery beyond the limits of the human hand, introducing precise, versatile instrument movements combined with a 3D visualization of the operative site. Surgeries are performed through small incisions, offering minimally invasive options for complex procedures.

In addition to improving clinical outcomes and redefining standards of care, patient benefits of robot-assisted surgery may include:

  • Faster recovery
  • Less postoperative pain and discomfort
  • Less risk of infection
  • Less scarring
  • Reduced blood loss and need for transfusions
