The Robotic Surgery Center at Rockledge Regional Medical Center is home to some of the most sought-after physicians in the country performing the newest, most innovative techniques in surgery today. Our physicians not only learn and practice cutting edge medicine, but many are also involved in the development of new treatments through active clinical research.
Robotic surgery provides surgeons with an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy, putting a surgeon's hands at the controls of a robotic platform. Robotic surgery enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision.
For the patient, benefits may include:
- Smaller incisions – provide faster healing and little to no scarring
- Shortened hospital stay, or even outpatient surgery
- Minimal blood loss – less chance a blood transfusion will be needed during surgery
- Less post-surgical pain – minimizes the length of time or need for pain medication
- Faster healing time
