Singing River’s Surgeons of Excellence

Robotic-Assisted Surgery Benefits

  • Less pain
  • Faster recoveries
  • Smaller incisions
  • Reduced scarring
  • Lower risk of complications and infection
  • The surgeon has clear 3D visualization of the surgical field
  • Greater range of motion and control of medical devices than in traditional laparoscopic surgery

The most common robotic-assisted procedures are joint replacements, hernia repairs, single-site hysterectomies, spine, and bariatric weight-loss surgeries. Robotic surgery can also help treat cancers such as colon, liver, lung, pancreatic, prostate, and women’s cancers.

Team members from all across Singing River Health System worked extremely hard to earn this prestigious designation as a Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery, which affirms our commitment to provide access to the most advanced technologies, expert physicians, and compassionate quality care.
