Moffitt is using robotic surgery to send patients home sooner.
The Moffitt Institute for Robotic Cancer Surgery is part of Moffitt Cancer Center, the only NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center based in Florida. This means we are dedicated to providing the highest quality of patient care along with developing the latest surgical techniques and treatments.

Patients who have had robotic and minimally invasive surgery reported high satisfaction thanks to the following:
- Tiny incisions through minimally invasive surgery
- Faster healing and less noticeable scars
- Shorter hospital stays
- Faster recovery time
- Decreased pain and better pain management
- Less blood loss during surgery – this reduces the need for blood transfusions and helps promote faster recovery
