Robotic Assisted Surgery

Wooster Community Hospital is pleased to have the addition of Robotic Assisted Surgery technology for a selected group of surgical procedures. 

Robotic assisted surgery offers patients the latest and most advanced surgical technology. This revolutionary procedure has been practiced at WCH as of 2012. The robotic assisted surgery is minimally invasive, uses telemanipulation devices and has advantages over traditional surgery. With robotic assistance, the instruments essentially have six degrees freedom which can mimic any motion a surgeon’s hand can do. For most patients, minimally invasive procedures performed can offer numerous potential benefits over
open-abdominal surgery, including:

  •  Less pain and scarring
  •  Less risk of wound infections
  •  Faster recovery
