World-Class Expertise. Compassionate Care.

In Greater Cincinnati, and in Ohio, for that matter, no one performs more robotic-assisted surgeries than TriHealth. According to Intuitive Surgical, Inc., Bethesda North, a TriHealth hospital, is ranked in the top 1 percent nationally when it comes to the number of procedures performed.


Robotic-assisted surgery is performed by highly-trained surgeons who utilize a robotic system. Miniaturized medical instruments are inserted through very small incisions (each about the size of a dime) and controlled by the surgeon via a console, located right next to the patient. The benefits of these features include:

  • The instruments are wristed, allowing them to turn and maneuver with ease and also bend far beyond the ability of the human hand.
  • Surgeons have even more precise control than with laparoscopic tools.
  • With a 3D camera, surgeons are provided high-definition, magnified images for a better view than either the human eye or the 2D images of laparoscopy can allow.
  • So highly tuned, the equipment even steadies any random movements, allowing for the highest level of precision.

Robotic-assisted surgery can be used on many parts of the body, including:

When it comes to complex surgeries, no one else comes close.

Our expert surgeons at TriHealth excel in both simple and complex robotic-assisted surgical procedures in these areas. Each surgeon provides a personalized approach, tailoring the specific surgical procedure best suited to each individual patient’s condition.

When compared to an open approach, a minimally-invasive approach provides:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Fewer Complications
  • Less blood loss and need for transfusions
  • Less risk of infection
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Shorter recovery time
  • Quicker return to normal activities
