Researchers from Boston Children's developed and perfected the technique for performing robotically assisted pediatric pyeloplasties and completed an 18-month study that showed that the same technique is effective for bladder augmentation procedures. Results from research conducted here have also led to advances and refinements in robotic equipment, making it more suitable for use in pediatric surgery.

The Robotic Surgery, Research and Training Program promotes learning for medical professionals and patients through its wide range of research projects. These research projects are divided into four main categories:
1. Robot-assisted and conventional laparoscopy
2. Quality of life and outcomes
- pre-operative and post-operative management of pain associated with laparoscopic procedures
3. Materials and instruments
4. Development of new fields
