Robotic & Minimally Invasive Surgery

At Danbury Hospital our expert surgeons excel at using advanced technology to perform minimally invasive procedures, allowing patients to undergo surgery with less pain, shorter hospital stays, and quicker recovery periods. Surgeons use very small incisions, meaning less trauma to the body, less blood loss, smaller scars and a lower need for pain medication. Our surgeons have been recognized for excellence in laparoscopic techniques performed in many surgical specialties including weight loss, colorectal, and general surgical procedures.

For robotic surgery, we use the latest, most advanced robotic technology available, the da Vinci surgical system. We are committed to staying at the forefront of innovation, equipping our surgeons with sophisticated technology so they can offer innovative surgical procedures here in our community. Our da Vinci surgical system gives surgeons better visualization and tools that improve dexterity. With more control they can operate with greater precision. Our doctors use this advanced technology to perform a wide range of procedures, including single-incision robotic surgery.

Compared to traditional minimally invasive surgery, the benefits of robotic surgery include:

  • Dramatically smaller scars
  • Less pain
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster recovery
Our surgeons perform many types of surgery using the da Vinci surgical system, including:
  • Colorectal surgery
  • Gastrointestinal surgery
  • Gynecologic surgery
  • General surgery
  • Prostate surgery
  • Urologic surgery
  • Thoracic (chest) surgery
  • Weight loss surgery
