Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery Program

The minimally invasive and robotic surgery techniques performed at UF Health Jacksonville give you advantages not found anywhere else in Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia. Through tiny incisions, University of Florida surgeons are the only ones to perform many complex operations with incredible precision using the latest technologies in cryotherapy, natural orifice and laparoscopic procedures, as well as robotically assisted surgery with the da Vinci S.

Minimally invasive surgery has many advantages over traditional surgery:

  • Quicker recovery
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less pain and scarring
  • Less risk of infection
  • Less blood loss and fewer transfusions
  • Quicker return to normal activities
  • Decreased need for post-surgery medications
  • Smaller, less obvious incision

Many traditional operations are now also being performed using minimally invasive surgical techniques, including:

  • Cardiac
  • General surgery
  • Gynecologic
  • Urology
  • Thoracic/chest
