Robotic Surgery for the Spleen (Partial or Complete)

Robotic total or partial splenectomy involves the surgical removal of the spleen or, in certain cases, just a tumor is excised while the rest of the spleen is left intact. The spleen is the largest single mass of lymphoid tissue and sits in the left upper quadrant on top of the left kidneys.

With the assistance of the da Vinci® Si Surgical System, the latest evolution in robotics technology, surgeons can perform a minimally invasive splenectomy with unmatched precision and control. This superior visualization and precision is ideally suited to the delicate dissection and control of multiple feeding blood vessels required in splenectomy.

da Vinci splenectomy, which is offered at Good Samaritan Medical Center in Brockton, Massachusetts, provides patients many potential benefits over traditional surgery, including:

  • Faster recovery and shorter hospital stay
  • Fewer stitches and less scarring
  • Lower risk of complications and infections
  • Less blood loss and the need for transfusions
  • Quicker return to normal activities
