Tampa General Hospital first in Florida to use new single-incision robot
Tampa General Hospital is the first hospital in Florida to offer the most advanced robotic technology that involves cutting just one small incision to allow for a faster and less painful recovery for urologic procedures.
The da Vinci SP system allows a camera and three surgical instruments to fit inside a tube that passes through a single one-inch wide incision, instead of the four required by the current generation of robots. This “single port” allows surgeons to use a minimally invasive approach, even for complex procedures, that combines deep access with flexible camera visibility and precision.
