Surgeries available at the Moffitt Institute for Robotic Cancer Surgery

Moffitt offers more robotic and minimally invasive cancer surgeries than most programs in the country. Our team has completed several first-ever robotic cancer surgeries, such as the Whipple procedure for cancers on or near the pancreas. Moffitt performs the highest volume of robotic esophagectomies in the United States. Surgeons from around the world train at Moffitt on robotic cancer surgeries so that patients who cannot come to Moffitt will still benefit from our expertise.

Trend toward Robotic Surgery

While minimally invasive surgeries have become standard in today’s hospitals, the adoption of laparoscopic techniques has been limited to a few routine procedures. This is mostly due to the limited capabilities of traditional laparoscopic technology, including standard video and rigid instruments, which surgeons must rely on to operate through small incisions. The robot extends even the most skilled surgeon’s capabilities, offering better visibility and increased precision.

Advantages for the Patient

• Smaller incisions and less noticeable scars
• Faster healing and recovery time
• Shorter hospital stays
• Decreased pain and better pain management
• Less blood loss during surgery, reducing the need for blood transfusions
