Congratulations to Tampa General Hospital in Tampa, Florida for completing 10,000 robotic surgical procedures! Having achieved an SRC accreditation as a Center of Excellence in Robotic surgery earlier this year, Tampa General Hospital is setting the bar through internationally recognized standards of excellence in patient care and safety.

After accomplishing such a HUGE milestone, Tampa General Hospital’s expert team of providers have every reason to ‘cut the cake’ in celebration. 10,000 patients received robot-assisted minimally invasive treatment that often results in:

  • less blood loss
  • smaller incisions and less scarring
  • shorter hospital stays
  • faster recovery time and return to everyday activities

Leading robotic surgery manufacturer Intuitive, celebrated alongside them. Intuitive provides top-of-the-line robots like the da Vinci® Robotic System, to aid surgeons in providing a less invasive and more precise surgical experience for patients. Tampa General’s SRC-accredited Surgeons of Excellence in Robotic Surgery include:
