Robotic-Assisted Surgery

Robotic-assisted surgery is an effective, minimally invasive alternative to both open surgery and laparoscopy. For patients, this means less scarring and a faster recovery time with fewer complications.

In Greater Cincinnati, no one performs more robotic-assisted surgeries than TriHealth, which has been a pioneer in the field since Good Samaritan Hospital introduced the da Vinci Surgical System to the area in 2003. In 2007, we expanded this expertise further into the region by adding robotic surgery at Bethesda North Hospital. And in 2011, Bethesda North introduced SpineAssist, which allows surgeons to perform minimally invasive spinal surgery.

Robotic-assisted surgery enables surgeons to be more precise, advancing their technique and enhancing their capability in performing complex minimally invasive surgery. The TriHealth robotic da Vinci Surgical System replicates the surgeon’s movements in real time and cannot function without the surgeon’s input.

TriHealth robotic-assisted surgery can treat problems affecting the:

  • Heart: mitral valve repair, atrial septal defect repair, Maze procedure, epicardial lead implantation, coronary artery bypass graft, myxoma removal
  • Lungs: lobectomy
  • Thymus: thymectomy
  • Prostate: prostatectomy
  • Kidneys: nephrectomy, pyeloplasty
  • Bladder: cystectomy
  • Adrenal glands: adrenalectomy
  • Uterus: hysterectomy for benign conditions, cervical cancer and uterine cancer; myomectomy, sacrocolpopexy
  • Spine: scoliosis, chronic back pain, slipped vertebrae, pinched nerves
