Robotic-assisted surgery

Heal quicker and reduce the length of your hospital stay with robotic-assisted surgery. Trust ProHealth Care for experienced surgical teams and advanced technology.

What’s robotic-assisted surgery?

During robotic-assisted surgery, your doctor controls robotic arms attached to very small surgical instruments. The arms mimic the motions of your doctor’s hands, but with greater precision, flexibility and dexterity. Your doctor operates the robot from a nearby computer console, using high-definition, magnified, 3D images of the surgical area.

Advantages of robotic-assisted surgery

If your procedure can be performed as a robotic-assisted surgery instead of traditional, open surgery, you may benefit from:

  • Faster recovery
  • Lower risk of infection and other complications
  • Less pain and discomfort
  • Less blood loss and fewer transfusions
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Smaller scars

Expert teams, advanced technology

Surgeons perform thousands of robotic-assisted surgeries each year at ProHealth Waukesha Memorial Hospital – more than any other surgical program in southeastern Wisconsin. Rely on an experienced team of doctors, nurses and technologists focused on helping you get the best outcome.
