Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery

Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC is a leader in minimally invasive surgical techniques, as well as:

Children’s Hospital is one of just a few pediatric hospitals in the world to have the top-of-the-line surgical robot system, called the daVinci SI Dual Consol Surgical System. Complex, delicate operations can be done through very small surgical openings by specially trained surgeons through the use of the daVinci.

The pediatric surgeons at Children’s have trained thoroughly in single-port laparoscopic surgeries in pediatric patients. Single-incision surgeries are rare in pediatric patients, and many pediatric surgeons don’t use this technique because it is complex and requires advanced minimally invasive surgical skills and practice.

The result? Our young patients have better outcomes.

Children are seen at Children’s Hospital’s main campus in the Lawrenceville section of Pittsburgh and at Children’s North, Wexford (endoscopic abdominal evaluations only).
