What is Robotic Surgery?
During a robotic-assisted surgery, your surgeon performs the surgery using a robotic surgery system. The result is an incredibly precise surgery. Your surgeon makes a few small incisions instead of one large one. In some cases, we can perform the surgery with only one incision. Learn more about Single-Site™ robotic surgery.
In addition, the ergonomic design of the robotic system allows the surgeron more precise access during surgery. Learn more about robotic surgery.
At St. Anthony’s, our surgeons use Firefly™ technology for robotic surgeries. Firefly uses a special dye that highlights the difference between cancerous and healthy tissues. It is especially effective during surgery for kidney, colon and uterine cancer. Learn more about Firefly technology.
