Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgery

The East Carolina Heart Institute is a world-renowned center for robotic surgery using the daVinci Surgical System®. Developed by Intuitive Surgical, Inc., the daVinci Surgical System uses a minimally invasive approach to simplify surgery. It is an effective alternative to both traditional open and laparoscopic surgery. Many procedures can be performed robotically, included cardiothoracic, gynecologic, urologic, head and neck, colorectal, and general surgery.

Patients may benefit from robotic surgery in the following ways:

  • Small incisions (1-2cm)
  • Low risk of infection
  • Less blood loss and transfusions
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Faster recovery time

If you are a surgeon interesting in training in Robotic Surgery, please visit the Robotic Research and Training Center website.
