Frequently Asked Questions

At SSM Health our physicians pride themselves on treating each patient as if he or she were family, working collaboratively to determine the care plan that makes sense for each person’s unique circumstances. Our surgeons pair their training and award-winning expertise with state-of-the-art technology, including robotic-assisted methods, to offer patients the surgical solutions they would recommend for their own family members.

Robotic-assisted surgery is a broad term to describe a number of surgical procedures that are typically minimally invasive. Highly trained physicians and their teams incorporate state-of-the-art smart medical technology as one of many tools to assist them in all or part of a procedure.

Robotic-assisted procedures can have many benefits in comparison to traditional surgery options, including but not limited to:

  • Quicker recovery
  • Less down time
  • Smaller incisions
  • Significantly shorter hospital stays (including many outpatient options)

All of these factors often lead to a more comfortable, less painful recovery.

We are passionate about bringing leading-edge solutions to our patients and are adding to our offerings regularly. A few of our areas of focus in robotic-assisted procedures include but are not limited to:

Many patients who have been referred for surgical solutions may be candidates for robotic-assisted surgeries, including those who may be candidates for laparoscopic procedures or those who may have experienced certain challenges with more traditional surgical methods in the past.
