Robotic surgery is an advanced form of minimally-invasive surgery allowing surgeons to use a computer-controlled robot to assist them with certain surgical procedures. Select general, urologic and gynecologic surgical procedures are completed using the state-of-the-art da Vinci Xi® robot at St. Peter’s Health.

Robotic surgery can result in:

  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Reduced pain and discomfort
  • Faster recovery time
  • Smaller incisions with less risk for infection
  • Minimal scaring
  • Reduced blood loss

Procedures performed include: 

  • Urologic: Prostatectomies, nephrectomies (partial and full)
  • Gynecologic: Hysterectomy, ophrectomy, cystectomy
  • General: Cholecystectomy (gall bladder), hernia repairs, bowel resections
