WVU Medicine surgeons use robotic-assisted surgical technology to perform the most precise and delicate procedures treating many conditions more effectively. Patients benefit from both the expertise of our surgeons and from the skilled team of multidisciplinary specialists who assist in surgical procedures.
Guided by a surgeon’s hands, the robotic arms of the da Vinci Surgical System® allow WVU Medicine providers to perform major surgery through tiny incisions with pinpoint accuracy. The 3D imaging provided by robotic-assisted surgical technology gives our surgeons a highly magnified view of the treatment area. Patients benefit from robotic-assisted surgery with fewer and smaller incisions, less pain, and a faster recovery.
The range of surgeries performed robotically continues to expand, and WVU Medicine providers from several medical specialties use robotic-assisted surgery, including:
