Robotic Surgery

Robotic Surgery St. Petersburg, FLThe St. Anthony's Hospital Center for Robotic Surgery offers the most advanced surgical procedures available. Our experienced surgical team has performed more than 1,200 minimally invasive robotic-assisted surgeries.

The outcome is an improved surgical experience for you, resulting in less pain, quicker recovery and shorter hospital stay.

What is Robotic Surgery?

During a robotic-assisted surgery, your surgeon performs the surgery using a robotic surgery system. The result is an incredibly precise surgery. Your surgeon makes a few small incisions instead of one large one. In some cases, we can perform the surgery with only one incision. Learn more about Single-Site™ robotic surgery.

In addition, the ergonomic design of the robotic system allows the surgeon more precise access during surgery.  Learn more about robotic surgery or call (727) 253-4215.

Firefly™ Technology

At St. Anthony’s, our surgeons use Firefly™ technology for robotic surgeries. Firefly uses a special dye that highlights the difference between cancerous and healthy tissues. It is especially effective during surgery for kidney, colon and uterine cancer. Learn more about Firefly technology.
