Robotic Surgery

You may have heard the term "robotic surgery," but you may not know much about its benefits unless you're a medical professional.

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:

  • Smaller incisions
  • A shorter length of stay/recovery time
  • Fewer complications
  • Quicker return to normal activity
  • Decreased pain and scarring

Robotic surgery is another way Piedmont physicians are embracing leading-edge technologies to provide you with exceptional, hassle-free care. Since the launch of the program in the early 2000s, Piedmont currently has the largest fleet of robots and uses robotic-assisted surgery more than any healthcare system in Georgia, with locations across Georgia and over 175 robotically trained physicians.

Robotic surgery is appropriate for many types of procedures, frequently used by urologists, gynecologic surgeons, general surgeons, cardiothoracic surgeons and colorectal surgeons. Since 2010, Piedmont surgeons have been using robotic surgery to treat several conditions, such as prostate cancer in men and gynecological conditions in women. In 2011, Piedmont Transplant also started offering donor nephrectomy to our patients – the Southeast's first and only robotic transplant program.

Below are just a few of the procedures that Piedmont surgeons in Piedmont locations throughout 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.
