University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics is a leader in using robotic tools for minimally invasive surgery, performing procedures with smaller incisions and reduced recovery times. The benefits of minimally invasive robotic surgery include:
Shorter hospital stay
Better patient outcomes
Less risk for postoperative infection
Quicker return to normal daily activities
For surgeons, the advantages of the robotic system—which includes high-definition, three-dimensional images—are increased dexterity, precision and control.
Our minimally invasive procedures include:
