The Center for Robotic and Minimally Invasive Reconstructive Surgery at Boston Children's Hospital provides unrivaled expertise in pediatric robotic surgery. Specially-trained surgeons use a high-tech robot to perform complex and delicate operations through very small surgical openings. The results are less pain, faster recoveries, shorter hospital stays, smaller scars, and happier patients.
In 2001, Children's was the first pediatric hospital to acquire a surgical robot. Today, surgeons use the technology for many procedures and perform more pediatric robotic surgeries than any other hospital in the world. Children's physicians have developed a number of new applications for the robot, and train surgeons from around the world on its use.
