Robotic Surgery Program

Minimally invasive surgery is increasingly popular. When a feasible option, it offers a number of benefits over traditional surgery. 

The incorporation of robotics into minimally invasive surgery takes the improvements even further, allowing for a microscopic precision that human hands alone aren’t able to deliver.  Yet with a surgeon operating the robot, he or she maintains complete control of the procedure at all times.

Holy Cross Health has remained at the forefront of robotics since its advent.
