Advanced Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgery

Norwalk Hospital has invested in 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 is a robotic surgical platform. Using a robotic surgical system, surgeons have better visualization and dexterity. With more control they can operate with greater precision. Our doctors use it to perform a wide range of procedures, including single-incision robotic surgery. In fact, Norwalk Hospital was first in our area to use single-incision surgery for gallbladder removal. Our specially trained surgeons operate through one small incision in the belly button, producing virtually scarless results.

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
