Minimally invasive robotic-assisted surgery in Brooksville, Florida

When a patient needs surgery, they can rest easy knowing that advanced solutions are right here in Brooksville, Florida, at Oak Hill Hospital.

With this leading-edge robotic surgical system, our trained surgeons are able to address complex diseases and conditions in gynecology, urology, as well as thoracic, cardiac and general surgery. This advanced robotic technology allows for operations using the tiniest incisions—with greater vision, precision and control.

With robotic surgery, only very small incisions are required. Our highly trained surgeons then insert the thin, robotic "arms" of the robotic technology. This allows them to view the actual surgical site—not a virtual version—in high definition using a small video camera attached to the "arms."

During a robotic surgery, the surgeon remains in control 100 percent of the time. The surgeon's real-time movements are seamlessly translated into precise, smaller movements of the robotic instruments—eliminating the possibility of hand tremors. The joints of the robotic system provide a greater range of motion than possible in traditional surgery.
