Brigham and Women’s Hospital is one of the most experienced and diversified robotic surgery providers worldwide. In robotic surgery, also called robotic-assisted surgery, the surgeon controls the arms of the robot while seated at a computer near the operating table. Robotic surgery allows surgeons to perform complex procedures with more precision and control than traditional operating techniques.
Our multispecialty robotic-assisted surgery program in Boston was the first in the region to perform 2,000 surgeries using the FDA-approved da Vinci ® Surgical System. The Brigham is in full compliance with recommendations made by the Board of Registration in Medicine regarding quality control, safety and physician training for robotic-assisted surgery. We were one of the first hospitals in the nation to adopt a stringent training and credentialing process and the only facility in Massachusetts with a state-of-the-art simulation unit dedicated solely to robotic-assisted surgery training.
