Florida Hospital North Pinellas leads the use of state-of-the-art minimally-invasive alternatives to conventional laparoscopic and traditional open surgery methods. The da Vinci® system offers the latest advancements in computer-enhanced procedures using 3D, high-definition vision and robotic "hands" that can go where human hands typically cannot.
Guided by the surgeon, the da Vinci robot translates the natural movements of the surgeon’s hands, wrists and fingers into micro-movements of the robot to perform delicate, complex procedures with greater precision and dexterity through much smaller incisions.
Robotic surgery at Florida Hospital North Pinellas is available for:
- Gynecologic oncology
- General surgery
The Patient Experience

- Shorter hospital stays
- Less pain and scarring
- Less risk of infection
- Less blood loss and fewer transfusions
- Faster recovery time
- A quicker return to normal activities
Surgical treatment options using the da Vinci® robot are dependent on your condition and diagnosis. While many Florida Hospital North Pinellas surgeons are equipped to perform robotic surgeries, they are also experts in laparoscopic and conventional surgical methods. Please consult with your physician to find out if you are eligible for a robotic surgical procedure.
