Jefferson University Hospitals

Outcomes of Minimally Invasive & Robotic Surgery

At Jefferson, our experts are focused on making minimally invasive and robotic surgery even more effective by continually investing in the latest tools, technologies and training. Our dedicated surgical suites have been updated with the latest high-definition equipment, including new cameras and monitors that feature increased sensitivity for anatomical clarity and patient safety. For superior clinical capability, our surgeons use the da Vinci® Surgical System, which provides a magnified, high-definition 3-D image and translates the surgeon’s hand movements into precise micro-movements.

Minimally invasive and robotic procedures offer many benefits to our patients, including:

  • Less scarring and pain because of smaller incisions
  • Reduced risk of infection
  • Quicker recovery times which can mean a shorter hospital stay – or none at all
  • Returning to daily lives much sooner than ever before
As a leading academic medical center, we are one of the highest-volume hospitals performing these procedures in the Philadelphia area. We have expertise in minimally invasive and robotic surgical procedures in the following areas:
