For patients and families
Surgeons from the Center for Robotic Surgery at Boston Children's Hospital are pioneers in pediatric robotic surgery. More robotic surgery is performed at Children's, and it is used in a wider array of procedures, than at any other pediatric hospital in the world.
Our surgeons perform complex reconstructive procedures utilizing minimally invasive techniques, which allows for very small openings, resulting in:
- less pain
- faster recovery
- shorter hospital stays
- smaller scars
- happier patients and families
Children's specialists have worked with engineers and medical device manufacturers to develop and refine the robotic equipment specifically for use in children, and they train surgeons from around the world on its use.
