Minimally invasive robotic surgery in Brandon, Florida
Brandon Regional Hospital uses minimally invasive robotic-assisted surgery as an alternative to more invasive surgical methods. Robotic technology allows complex procedures to be performed through just a few, small incisions. As a result, patients get back to life faster without the usual recovery time following major surgery.

What is robotic-assisted surgery?
Robotic-assisted surgery is designed to provide surgeons with enhanced capabilities, including high-definition, 3D vision and a magnified view. The surgeon controls the robotic system, which translates hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside of the body.
Benefits of robotic-assisted surgery
Compared to traditional surgery, robotic surgery offers :
- Faster recovery
- Fewer complications
- Less blood loss
- Less need for pain medicine
- Shorter hospital stay
- Smaller incisions for minimal scarring
Robotic surgery options offered
Our skilled surgeons use robotic technology to perform several procedures, including:
- Gallbladder surgery: Using single-site robotic assistance, this procedure requires one incision that is approximately an inch in length to remove gallbladder
- Hysterectomy surgery: Procedure to remove the uterus (partial hysterectomy) or the uterus and cervix (total hysterectomy), often to treat conditions such as uterine fibroids, endometriosis, pelvic pain, uterine and cervical cancer
- Kidney surgery: Procedure to remove of all or part of the kidney, often to treat kidney cancer
