General Robotic Surgery

Your surgeon may recommend surgery when medication and lifestyle modifications have not reduced the associated pain, discomfort, or risk you’re experiencing.

Robotic surgery is a less-invasive option that can reduce the pain and risk associated with traditional surgery while improving outcomes and allowing for quicker recovery. By using the da Vinci® xi Surgical System, our experienced surgeons can operate through small incisions with a high degree of precision and control.

General surgery procedures that can be completed by St. Luke’s surgeons using the da Vinci® surgical robot include:

  • Appendectomy
  • Cholecystectomy
  • Gastrointestinal surgery
  • Hernias
  • Laparoscopic cholecystectomy
  • Single-incision cholecystectomy

If your physician has recommended surgery, be sure to ask if robotic surgery at St. Luke’s Hospital is right for you.
