Robotic Surgery

Robotic Surgery

Robotic surgery, or robot-assisted surgery, allows surgeons to perform a variety of procedures with enhanced precision, flexibility, and control compared to conventional surgical techniques. 


At The Elliot, we have robotic platforms to assist in the performance of surgeries for orthopaedics (Mako SmartRobotics™) for total and partial knee replacement and hip replacement, general surgery, gynecology, urology, and thoracic surgery (Intuitive Surgical’s daVinci Xi Surgical System) for a variety of minimally invasive procedures, and urology (Aquablation Therapy) for the treatment of benign prostatic hypertrophy.

Robotic surgery is typically minimally invasive, the benefits of which include, but are not limited to:

  • More precise surgery
  • Improved visualization for the surgeon
  • Less risk of blood loss

Please discuss other benefits with your doctor.

The Latest in Surgery

Our specially-trained surgeons are increasingly relying on minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic-assisted techniques across all specialties as the best surgical alternative for both children and adults.

Having minimally invasive surgery may result in less pain and scarring, a faster recovery, and either a shorter stay in the hospital, or, even more often, a surgery done on an outpatient basis. Minimally invasive surgery includes laparoscopic surgery and robotic-assisted surgery. Surgeons performing laparoscopic surgery can use more precise procedures through one or more small incisions using small tubes, tiny cameras, and surgical instruments.

Innovative, sophisticated robotic-assisted surgery allows surgeons to have 3D high-definition views of the surgical site, magnifying ten times what the human eye sees, and use tiny instruments that move like a human hand with a far greater range.

At Elliot Hospital and our 1-Day Surgery & Endoscopy Center, our experienced surgeons use the most precise robotic surgical system available - Intuitive Surgical’s da Vinci Xi Surgical System - as well as the highly-regarded Mako SmartRobotics™ robotic-arm-assisted surgery for joint replacements.
