The University of Miami Hospital has established a center for groundbreaking robotic surgery, a highly-innovative and exciting minimally-invasive alternative to laparoscopic surgery. Using the da Vinci Surgical System, our expert physicians use their finely-tuned skills in tandem with the latest technology
At the present time, University of Miami Hospital physicians are performing urologic cancer and reconstructive surgeries (such as radical prostatectomy, cystectomy, partial nephrectomy, and pyeloplasty) as well as gynecological procedures (radical hysterectomy, fibroid removal, vaginal prolapse repair, and gynecological oncology) using the da Vinci robot.
For the surgeon, a primary benefit of the robot is the exceptionally clear view of the surgical site. In addition, the Da Vinci System requires an extremely small incision to perform the most intricate of surgeries. Procedures performed with the robot also carry the benefit of short hospital stays, decreased pain, lower infection rates, and reduced blood loss.
