What Procedures Are Performed with Robotic Surgery?

Advances in medical science and technology have enabled cutting edge robotic surgery to be performed by experienced and knowledgeable medical professionals. Wood County Hospital’s surgery specialists utilize robotic-assisted surgery in various procedures to give patients a minimally-invasive and easier surgery experience. Here are the types of surgery our specialists may use robotic-assisted surgery:

General Surgery

Using the da Vinci XI robotic surgical system, our specially trained surgeons may perform general surgical procedures. During general surgical procedures, our experienced surgeons use 3D-HD visualization allowing for clearer images during surgery. Enhanced articulating instruments allow for supreme control and act as an extension of the surgeon’s arm. The da Vinci XI robotic-assisted surgical system allows for greater versatility and exploration for your surgeons.

Gynecological Surgery

Our expert gynecological surgeons use the da Vinci XI robotic surgical system to give you the most complete care during your gynecological procedure. Our surgeons utilize robotic-assisted surgery during many gynecological procedures including Laparoscopy for minimally-invasive evaluation and treatment of pelvic disease, minimally-invasive procedures for urinary stress incontinence and urge incontinence, minimally-invasive hysterectomy, and more.

Urological Surgery

Urology covers conditions of the male and female urinary tract system and the male reproductive system. The dedicated and experienced surgeons use robotic-assisted surgery when performing certain urological procedures including many minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures. Our specially trained doctors are able to view the surgical area in magnification and allows for extremely precise incisions. The da Vinci XI robotic surgical system is used in procedures such as prostatectomy, partial and total nephrectomy, cystectomy, and more.


The state-of-the-art technology involved in robotic-assisted surgical procedures usually gives patients a quicker recovery and an overall better surgical experience. Robotic surgery may not be for everyone. To find out if you are a candidate to receive robotic-assisted surgery contact your doctor.
