Robotic-assisted surgery is transforming minimally invasive surgery.

Mercy Robotic Surgery Center offers Stark County’s most experienced team of surgeons leading the way in robotic-assisted gynecology, urology, thoracic, cardiac, and general surgery. With two da Vinci robots on site, Mercy Robotic Surgery Center offers patients an alternative to traditional surgery (with its large open incisions) and laparoscopy (typically limited to very simple procedures), and its precision consistently provides good patient outcomes.robotic surgery mercy medical center canton ohio

Patients can normally look forward to:

  • A faster recovery and less scarring.
  • Reduced blood loss and risk of infection.
  • Significantly less pain and a shorter hospital stay.
  • A quicker return to normal activities.

Mercy a Stark County Leader in Robotic Surgery

In 2008 Mercy became the first hospital in the local five county area to unveil the da Vinci Surgical System and currently has two robots on site.

Mercy is proud to continue bringing Stark County and surrounding areas the most advanced minimally invasive surgical options. In 2017 Mercy acquired Ohio’s first da Vinci® X™ Surgical Robot. This newest robot can be used across a spectrum of minimally invasive surgical procedures. Key features include a simpler, more compact design with improved vision definition and clarity; increased flexibility for visualizing the surgical site; greater range of motion; and better operative reach.

This robotic procedure provides both significant symptom relief and a lower risk of sexual side effects than traditional TURP (transurethral resection of the prostate).
