Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgery at UPMC Hamot

UPMC Content 3

Transcending the limitations of open surgery and laparoscopy, robotic surgery provides a virtual extension of the surgeon’s eyes and hands.

This technology expands our ability to offer a minimally invasive option for many complex surgical procedures.

Robotic Surgery Benefits and Features

One advantage of robotic technology is that it is less invasive for more complex surgeries that are difficult to perform laparoscopically and might otherwise require a large incision and prolonged recovery.

Other benefits of minimally invasive robotic surgery include:

  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Lower complication rates
  • Less postoperative pain

Surgeons appreciate features of this state-of-the-art robotic technology, such as:

  • High-resolution, 3D video
  • Fully articulating surgical instruments
  • Unparalleled dexterity, precision, and control

Robotic technology also has a system simulator to allow surgeons to perform drills and improve their performance on the robot.
