What is Robotic Surgery?

da vinci robotic surgeryRobotic-assisted surgery offers breakthrough capabilities that enable surgeons to operate through smaller incisions, which may reduce blood loss, pain, recovery time and the familiar unwanted side effects of other treatments. Through the use of robotic surgery, surgeons are able to offer a minimally invasive option for complex surgical procedures. As a result, robotic surgery is changing the practice of surgery as it's known today.

Steward® offers robotic surgery through the da Vinci® surgical system. The da Vinci robot provides surgeons with an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy, putting a surgeon’s hands at the controls of a state-of-the-art robotic platform. The da Vinci system enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision. Potential benefits of having surgery by using the da Vinci system include reduction of blood loss, less pain, shorter recovery time and the familiar unwanted side effects of other treatments. 

Steward Health Care's robotic surgeons tailor each surgical procedure for the individual patient. Working with specially trained robotic surgery teams, our surgeons provide comprehensive care before, during and after the surgery.

Other Steward Robotic Services

MAKOplasty is leading the way in orthopedic surgical options for patients coping with osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee and hip. MAKOplasty offers patients a new alternative to traditional joint replacement surgery. Thanks to its FDA-cleared RIO® Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System, MAKOplasty is changing the way surgeons can help patients with OA restore range of motion, reduce or eliminate joint pain, and return to the lives they love.

  • Praxim™ Surgical Navigation

Praxim™ Surgical Navigation develops advanced automated systems in order to make total knee replacement less invasive, more reliable, faster, and more cost-effective for both patients and surgeons. The Praxim technology platform addresses the key issues associated with conventional surgical procedures, including the malalignment of bones that ultimately lead to joint failure. Designed and manufactured by OMNIlife science, which is based in Taunton, Mass., the Praxim system couples patent pending bone morphing software with the accuracy and adaptability of Apex Robotic Technology. This proprietary technology allows the surgeon to do virtual bone preparation planning in 3-D prior to actually making the bone cuts.

  • CorPath® 200 System (Corindus Vascular Robotics)

The CorPath® 200 System is a new state-of-the-art tool that our interventional cardiologists can use to perform Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) with robotic precision. The robotic-assisted system leverages a physician’s skills by providing a tool to precisely control stent and balloon catheters while treating a patient's heart.
