Types of Robotic Surgery

Huntington Hospital offers robotic surgery procedures covering a wide range of specialty areas, performed by da Vinci-trained surgeons.

Because the da Vinci robotic procedure is minimally invasive when compared to traditional surgery, patients receive considerably smaller incisions and experience quicker recovery times. In addition, patients generally experience less pain during recovery, lessening their need for opioid pain medication.
