Robotic Surgery

Treatments and Services

The Emory Robotic Surgery Program offers comprehensive and minimally invasive treatments for a range of conditions.

Robotic Colon and Rectal Conditions Surgery

When it comes to planning for surgery for colon cancer, rectal cancer, diverticulitis, Crohn’s disease, or other colorectal conditions, there are a few options your surgeon may discuss with you. So what are the differences between open surgery, laparoscopic surgery, and robotic surgery?

Robotic Coronary Bypass Surgery

Robotic-assisted coronary artery bypass (CABG) is minimally-invasive and an innovative way to care for patients with coronary artery disease. Coronary artery disease occurs in patients for a variety of reasons and is associated with certain risk factors including smoking, diabetes, advanced age, family history, high cholesterol, hypertension, diet, and others.

Robotic Hernia Surgery

A hiatal hernia occurs when the upper part of the stomach pushes up through the diaphragm and into the chest area. Use the link below to learn more about this condition and learn about the available options.

Robotic Hysterectomy Surgery

Hysterectomy, the removal of the uterus and cervix, is the second most common surgery for women in the United States, following cesarean section. There are many reasons for women to undergo a hysterectomy, including abnormal bleeding, fibroids, uterine prolapse, endometriosis, and cancer. After a hysterectomy, a woman is no longer able to have periods or become pregnant. A robotic hysterectomy is one method of performing this surgery.

Robotic Mitral Valve Surgery

Robotic mitral valve surgery was pioneered at Emory Structural Heart and Valve Center. We have performed more than 2,000 robotic mitral valve surgeries at Emory over the past 15 years, more than anywhere else in the world.

Robotic Prostatectomy Surgery

Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men in the United States. Fortunately, with early detection and proper treatment, survival rates are very high. Your urologist will discuss treatment options with you, including monitoring, radiation therapy, and surgery. If you and your urologist decide that surgery is the best choice, then a minimally invasive option with robotic assistance may be offered.

Robotic Thoracic Surgery

The surgeons in the Section of General Thoracic Surgery at Emory are experts in performing minimally invasive procedures using smaller incisions, specialized instruments like the da Vinci robotic surgical system, and other dedicated technologies. Greater than three quarters of the thoracic surgeries at Emory are performed using minimally-invasive techniques.
