- one of the most experienced surgical support teams of nurses and technicians in the country
- expertise in more than 70 robotic procedures for more than 25 different conditions, including complex cases
- evidence-based research and clinical trials in robotics, several initiated at The Ohio State University
- experience training hundreds of other physicians and surgical teams in robotic techniques, many of which were pioneered at OSU
The development of the Center for Advanced Robotic Surgery provides a unique opportunity to expand across specialties and showcases the experience behind this world-class program. Patients choosing to have their robotic surgery at Ohio State’s Center for Advanced Robotic Surgery not only benefit from the expertise of their surgeon, but from the unmatched experience and continued advancements only possible through such a progressive robotics program.
The experts are at Ohio State.
Ohio State physicians were the first in the country to perform surgery with the da Vinci® robot, and we’ve been leading the field ever since. Performing roughly 1,200 robotic surgeries a year, we have the most experienced robotic surgical team in Ohio, and we offer the most comprehensive robotics program. Our expertise in heart, urologic and gynecologic robotic surgery for both malignant and benign conditions is unmatched in the region, and many of the most respected medical institutions across the nation look to us for robotic training.
We are continuously expanding our robotic capabilities and researching new ways to help patients benefit from this state-of-the-art technology.
"Robotic surgery is no different than any other surgery – the more experienced the surgeon, the better the outcome, and we’ve proven that. We’re lucky at Ohio State to have so many surgeons in multiple fields who have mastered these techniques." – Ronney Abaza, M.D., Co-director of Ohio State’s Center for Advanced Robotic Surgery
