Robotic Surgery | The da Vinci Surgical Robot
Technology in surgery is constantly evolving with the intent of increasing positive clinical outcomes and improving patient safety and recovery. One of the greatest medical advances to occur in the pursuit of these goals was the development of robotic surgery.
Flushing Hospital Medical Center, in its dedication to supplying patients with superior and technologically advanced tools in healthcare, acquired the da Vinci Surgical Robot. The prestigious new member of Flushing Hospital’s medical team is world-renowned and revolutionary in the field of minimally invasive surgery.
Da Vinci systems are designed to allow for a precise, robot-assisted surgical experience. These machines have already accounted for more than 6 million surgeries worldwide, and we use them for a wide range of procedures including colon resection surgery, gallbladder surgery, hysterectomy, and much more.

If you require or elect for a procedure for which robotic assistance is available, your doctor will discuss your options with you. Often, robotic surgery can shorten healing times, minimize scarring, and result in less pain and discomfort following a procedure. Your physician will help you to determine if this approach is ideal for your situation.
