Robotic Surgery at JFK



Michael Lasser, M.D.
Medical Director, Robotic Surgery


Using the cutting-edge da Vinci Surgical System Xi, which blends robotic, optical and computer technology, JFK Medical Center is proud to offer qualifying patients the option of robotic surgery. This innovative approach is perfect for a wide range of procedures in a variety of areas, and it’s especially well-suited for patients hoping to reduce the risks associated with traditional open surgery.

How Does Robotic Surgery Work?

Robotic surgery may sound intimidating, but it’s actually quite straightforward and even less invasive than standard open surgeries. During robotic surgery, our experienced surgeons carefully guide the machine, but the system itself makes the incisions – which are much smaller than they would be if made by hand – with miniscule instruments. The system further bolsters the efforts of our surgeons by providing a detailed, close-up look at the surgery location through a high-tech 3D-HD vision system.

What Are The Benefits Of Robotic Surgery?

The most notable benefit of robotic surgery at JFK Medical Center is that it’s minimally invasive – especially when compared to open surgery – thanks to the smaller incisions. By extension, robotic surgery also affords a number of other benefits for patients, including:

  • Shortened hospital stay
  • Less blood loss
  • Decreased need for narcotic pain medication
  • Speedier recoveries
  • Reduced scarring

Which Surgeries Can Be Performed Robotically?

Although it depends on your unique situation, the da Vinci Surgical System Xi can be used in a number of areas, including:

  • Gynecology
  • Urology
  • Thoracic
  • Cardiac
  • General surgery

Don’t hesitate to consult your doctor at JFK Medical Center to discuss whether or not robotic surgery is right for you.
