Robotic Surgery

St. Charles Hospital's Robotic Surgery Program brings exciting, state-of-the-art technologies to Long Island residents seeking advanced surgical procedures at a location close to home. Robotic technologies aim to deliver a level of precision that can mean:

  • Less Pain
  • Less Scarring
  • Shorter Hospital Stays
  • Faster Return to Normal Functioning

Technologies in the program include:

Makoplasty Partial Knee Resurfacing: St. Charles Hospital is the first hospital on Long Island to utilize this surgeon-controlled robotic arm to address early to mid-stage osteoarthritis (OA) that has not yet progressed to all three compartments of the knee. 

Makoplasty Total Hip Replacement: Designed for patients who suffer from non-inflammatory or inflammatory degenerative joint disease of the hip, the surgeon-controlled robotic arm helps the physician remove diseased bone while preserving healthy bone and then guides accurate placement of the hip implant.

da Vinci Surgical System: Surgeons at St. Charles Hospital utilize the da Vinci Xi, the newest, fourth-generation of the ground-breaking surgical system used by the nation's top hospitals for surgery. St. Charles performs a wide spectrum of surgeries with the da Vinci Xi, which incorporates more advanced instrumentation, enhanced visualizations and a more streamline design than previously released da Vinci models.
