Benefits & Advantages

Why Choose Roswell Park?

We are a designated ‘Center For Excellence’ for robotic surgery. We have come to this distinction through:

  • Innovation: Roswell Park was the first to perform robotic surgery in the region.
  • Experience: Our surgeons have performed more than 1,500 operations since 2004 using the da Vinci® Surgical System.
  • Accreditation: RPCI has become the first institution in the U.S. to be accredited as a training institute in robotic-assisted surgery by the Société Internationale d’Urologie (SIU).
  • Leadership: We’re a leader in training other surgeons in robotic surgery.
  • Commitment: Our team is dedicated to improving robotic surgical techniques.

Patients who have had robotic surgery have consistently reported high satisfaction with the procedure. Some of the reasons for this are:

  • Tiny incisions through minimally invasive surgery. These incisions heal faster and leave less noticeable scars.
  • Shorter hospital stays.
  • Faster recovery time.
  • Less pain and easier pain management.
  • Less blood loss during surgery. This reduces the need for blood transfusions and helps promote faster recovery.
  • Tools are more precise view than the human eye—with 3-D and 10x magnified views
  • Tools are more flexible than a human wrist.
