Welcome to the Robotic Surgery Program at White Plains Hospital

White Plains Hospital Pioneered Robotic Surgery in Westchester County and Now We’re Taking it to the Next Level.


When it comes to surgery, it’s a simple fact that smaller incisions mean less pain, less risk and faster recoveries.  Robotic surgery offers patients better outcomes and faster return to normal activities thanks to greater precision, 3-D visualization and smaller incisions, often as little as just 8mm.

        


New, state-of-the-art operating suites in White Plains Hospital equipped for robotic surgery.


In 2005, surgeons at White Plains Hospital were the first in Westchester to perform robotic surgery. Just over a decade later, with more than 2,500 robotic procedures behind us, we’ve become one of the most comprehensive and advanced robotics programs in the region.
 

In another first, we are the only hospital in Westchester to acquire two of the latest generation da Vinci® Xi™ surgical systems that further enhance patient safety and surgical outcomes. These remarkable surgical robots are equipped with new features and technologies that empower our surgeons to perform an increased spectrum of minimally invasive surgical procedures with even more precision on complex cases.

Our robotic assisted surgery procedures are performed in new, state-of-the-art operating rooms using patient centered technology such as Single Site robotic surgery and advanced imaging like Firefly laser fluorescence imaging. We are community leaders in healthcare performing nearly 500 robotic procedures per year.

Our team of surgeons expertly performs minimally invasive robotic surgeries to treat cancerous as well as benign disorders of the kidneys, prostate, bladder, ureter, ovaries, uterus, endometrium, fallopian tubes, gall bladder, lungs, colon, rectum, stomach and head and neck.

They are supported by a team of specialized nurses, physician assistants, surgical technologists and anesthesiologists who are highly experienced in robotic surgery.
