Robotic Surgery

DaVinci Robotic Operating Suite

The Robotic Surgery team at MUSC Health Florence Medical Center is ready to help patients with their surgical needs using the minimally invasive approach. Robotic specialties include general surgery, gynecology surgery, urology surgery, and robotic-assisted bronchoscopy. We also offer 24-hour a day, seven days a week emergency surgery procedures. The goal at MUSC Health Florence Medical Center is to provide advanced, cutting-edge surgical care close to home in the Pee Dee region using our robotic technology. We strive to improve surgical outcomes and reduce patient recovery times with less pain and shorter hospital stays. Robotic surgery uses three-dimensional, high-definition visualization with wristed instrument articulation, allowing more patients to often avoid the need for traditional open surgery.
