Robotic Surgery

Robotic Surgery

Robotic surgery, or robot-assisted surgery, allows our highly skilled surgeons to perform a variety of complex procedures with more precision, flexibility and control. Robotic surgery is accessible to our patients in the Greater Lima region for a wide variety of surgeries. Benefits to consider regarding robotic assisted surgery include:

  • Less pain
  • Smaller incisions
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Faster-than-ever recovery times
  • Lower risk of complications
  • Highly predictable outcome

Robotic-Assisted Surgery

The da Vinci®Surgical System

Lima Memorial's da Vinci® surgical robotics program delivers exceptional outcomes for our patients. The robot helps surgeons conduct complex procedures with more precision, flexibility and control, using a minimally invasive approach. For our patients, this means less pain, shorter hospital stays and a quicker recovery. For surgeons, the da Vinci Surgical System provides increased range of motion, improved dexterity and enhanced 3D visualization. It’s important to know that surgery with da Vinci® does not place a robot at the controls; the surgeon is controlling every aspect of the surgery with the assistance of the surgical platform.

Procedures that best utilize da Vinci® surgery include:


  • Robotic appendectomy
  • Robotic cholecystectomy
  • Robotic colon resection
  • Robotic gastric resection
  • Robotic hiatal hernia repair
  • Robotic inguinal hernia repair
  • Robotic umbilical hernia repair
  • Robotic herniorrhaphy ventral hernia repair
  • Robotic laparoscopy
  • Robotic abdominoperineal resection


  • Robotic colposuspension
  • Robotic hysterectomy
  • Robotic laparoscopy
  • Robotic sacrocolopopexy
  • Robotic salpingo-oophorectomy


  • Robotic adrenalectomy
  • Robotic bladder diverticulectomy
  • Robotic bladder neck reconstruction
  • Robotic cystectomy
  • Robotic ileal loop urinary diversion
  • Robotic nephrectomy
  • Robotic nephroureterectomy
  • Robotic suprapubic prostatectomy
  • Robotic prostatectomy
  • Robotic pyloplasty
  • Robotic ureteroneocystostomy
  • Robotic  ureteral reimplantation
  • Robotic urostomy revision

Lima Memorial Exclusively Selected as Site for the da Vinci® Robotic Mentor Program

Our robotics program has garnered national attention and has been exclusively selected as a designated site for the da Vinci® Robotic Mentor Program. Physicians across the country come to Lima Memorial to learn from our expert surgeons.

Spine and Brain

Your spine and brain supports an intricate nervous system that controls every part of your body. So when a spine or brain surgery is necessary, it must be done with utmost precision. And at Lima Memorial, it will.

As part of the most advanced surgical care in our region, your procedure can be mapped out in advance and performed with unmatched precision using the Mazor X™ and Stealth Autoguide™ robotic systems. These newest additions to our nationally recognized robotics program are among the first of their kind in Ohio, and our highly skilled surgeons work hand-in-hand with them to bring you the exceptional surgical experience you deserve – no worries, just great outcomes.

The Mazor X™ robotic surgery and guidance system.

With the Mazor X™ robotic guidance system, Lima Memorial offers the latest advancement in minimally invasive spinal surgeries. The Mazor X™ works by allowing our surgeons to utilize preoperative imaging to create an individualized surgical plan before they set foot in the operating room.

Once your procedure begins, your surgeon, equipped with an automated robotic arm, will complete your customized surgical plan with a level of precision that can only be achieved by the micro incisions of the Mazor X™. 

Procedures that benefit most from the Mazor X™ include:

  • Herniated disc
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Complex scoliosis and kyphosis

The Stealth Autoguide™ robotic guidance system.

Brain surgery requires a level of skill that very few possess. This is why, in addition to having the most highly skilled neurosurgeons in the region, Lima Memorial has invested in the Stealth Autoguide™ Cranial Robotics Guidance Platform.

Stealth Autoguide™ provides continuous real-time visualization, feedback and robotic-assisted movement, allowing our surgeons to accurately align their surgical plans to your procedure. It also assists with digital accuracy through anatomical positioning and orientation so you and your neurosurgeon can be confident no element of the procedure is left to chance.

Procedures that best utilize Stealth Autoguide™ technology include:

  • Brain biopsies
  • Stereoelectroencephalogrophy (sEEG)
  • Depth Electrode Placement
  • Catheter Placement
