Minimally Invasive Surgery for Faster Recovery

Robotic-assisted surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that allows surgeons enhanced surgical precision. The surgeon is in control of the robotic system and is performing the actual procedure. Unlike traditional open surgery, patients benefit from robotic surgery with:

  • Reduced blood loss
  • Lower risk of infection
  • Smaller incisions that cause minimal scarring
  • Less pain during recovery
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Faster recovery time

At Catholic Health, our physicians in Nassau and Suffolk counties give you access to the latest advances in robotic surgery in multiple areas of care.
