Robotic Surgery

at Brigham and Women's Faulkner Hospital

Robotic Surgery

If you’ve recently been diagnosed with a condition requiring surgery, your options used to be very limited. Until now.

Up until recently, your options included traditional surgery with a large open incision or laparoscopy, which uses small incisions but is typically limited to very simple procedures.

Thanks to a breakthrough surgical technology, there is a new category of minimally invasive surgery, called robotic-assisted surgery, which has proven to be an effective, minimally invasive alternative to both open surgery and laparoscopy.

Through the use of the da Vinci© Surgical System, surgeons at Brigham and Women’s Center for Robotic Surgery at Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital are now able to offer a minimally invasive option for both routine and complex surgical procedures.

Imagine major surgery performed through the smallest of incisions. Imagine having the benefits of a definitive treatment but with the potential for significantly less pain, a shorter hospital stay and a faster return to normal daily activities, as well as the potential for better clinical outcomes.

If you’re a candidate for a gynecological or urological procedure, talk to a physician at Brigham and Women’s Center for Robotic Surgery at Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital today to find out how we can return you to your normal daily activities as soon as possible.
