Ohio State’s Center for Advanced Robotic Surgery is the most comprehensive robotics program in the country. Equipped with unparalleled robotic expertise and advanced technology, our multidisciplinary team performs cutting-edge procedures that result in fewer complications, including less blood loss and scarring, and lower risk of infection, leading to excellent outcomes and improved quality of life for patients.


Robotic surgery allows for incredible precision and has the potential to provide benefit to the patient in many ways, including:

• Less blood loss
• Less pain
• Quicker recovery time
• Less time spent in the hospital
• Quicker return to normal activities

“As a minimally invasive procedure, robotics puts less stress on the immune system. Recovery is easier and quicker, which means the patient’s ability to continue additional treatment is enhanced.” – Patrick Ross, MD, Director, Division of Thoracic Surgery and Professor of Clinical Surgery

“Our extensive robotic experience means that patients, including many who are deemed unsuitable for robotic procedures elsewhere, have minimally invasive options for even the most complex cases.” – David Cohn, MD, Director, Division of Gynecologic Oncology and Professor, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology
