The Frank E. & Mary D. Walsh Robotic Surgery Program at Jupiter Medical Center offers a wide-range of procedures that combines more than 20 robotically-skilled surgeons working across eight different specialties. Our program was one of the first ten in the world to install da Vinci’s Xi Surgical System, the most advanced robotic system available. Using the da Vinci Surgical System, or robot, enables surgeons to perform delicate and complex operations through a few tiny incisions with increased vision, precision, dexterity and control.
Robotic surgery is the most advanced form of minimally- invasive surgery available today and Jupiter Medical Center has one of the most comprehensive programs in the area. Our expertise spans thoracic, gynecologic, orthopedic, gynecology/fertility, urologic, colorectal and single site cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal). One of our surgeons was the first in the area to perform single site gynecologic surgery. Robotic surgery is particularly effective over traditional surgery when performing more challenging procedures like radical hysterectomy or prostatectomy. In addition to two da Vinci surgical systems our robotic surgery program also offers MAKOplasty® RIO™ Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System. Jupiter Medical Center is a MAKOplasty center of excellence for knee and hip surgery.

Our Robotic Surgery Program offers more than new technology. It means that our team of physicians, nurses and staff are working together to give our patients better outcomes, with less pain and faster recovery.
