Robotic Surgery

You may have heard the term "robotic surgery," but unless you're a medical professional, odds are you don't know much about the benefits it can deliver.

Below are just a few of the procedures that Piedmont surgeons in Athens, Atlanta, Fayetteville, Newnan and Stockbridge, Georgia use robotic tools to treat - but there are many more procedures where the precision of a robot may make all the difference in recovery time. If you are evaluating surgical options for a medical issue, be sure to ask your doctor if robot-assisted surgery is an option for you.

Robotic surgery - just another way Piedmont physicians are embracing leading-edge technologies to provide you with better care.

With robotic surgery – or “robot-assisted surgery” – surgeons use specialized robotic surgical tools to operate more quickly, efficiently and with greater precision than ever before. Instead of working by hand – which typically requires larger incisions - surgeons can manipulate ultra-precise robotic arms to enter a body through small, dime-sized incisions.

The benefits associated with robotic surgery include:

  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster recovery time
  • Less risk of infection
  • Less pain and scarring
  • Diminished blood loss
  • Less risk of infection 

Since 2010, Piedmont surgeons have been using robotic surgery to treat a number of conditions such as prostate cancer and other urological conditions in men, and a number of gynecological conditions in women including endometriosis, uterine fibroids, and hyperplasia. In 2011 Piedmont Transplant started offering donor nephrectomy to our patients – the first and only robotic transplant program in the Southeast.
