Minimally Invasive Robotic-Assisted Surgery at Wilkes-Barre General Hospital

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a condition that may require surgery, you owe it to yourself to learn about all of your medical options, including the least invasive surgical treatments available.

Wilkes-Barre General Hospital is proud to be among the first in Northeast Pennsylvania to offer the da Vinci® Surgical System, giving our surgeons the technology to provide our patients with more options with better outcomes. The da Vinci System provides surgeons with an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy, putting a surgeon's hands at the controls of a high-tech robotic platform and enabling surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions – with unmatched precision.

For the patient, benefits may include:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter recovery time
  • A faster return to normal daily activities

Our skilled surgeons utilize robotics for these minimally invasive robotic assisted procedures:

  • Removal of the Uterus — Hysterectomy
  • Removal of the Prostate — Prostatectomy
  • Cholecystectomy for gallbladder disease & stones
  • Gastrectomy for stomach cancer
  • Distal pancreatectomy for pancreatic disease
  • Gastric bypass for obesity
  • Heller myotomy for achalasia (swallowing disorder)
  • Nissen fundoplication for gastric reflux
  • Small bowel and colon resections
