The many benefits of Advanced Surgical Technologies

Our state-of-the-art robotic surgical tools allow our physicians to duplicate the durability of a traditional open repair procedure while offering patients a faster recovery, less pain and reduced risk of infection than with a larger open incision.

Our investment in Advanced Surgical Technologies potentially offers patients:

  • Smaller, less noticeable scars
  • Superior outcomes
  • Increased surgical precision
  • Fewer complications such as surgical site infection
  • Reduced hospital stays
  • Less pain and decreased opioid use
  • Quicker recovery and return to work
