Our Lady of the Lake Robotic Surgery Institute


Our Lady of the Lake Robotic Surgery Institute

When you hear the term robotic surgery, what do you imagine? Years ago, we imagined a program that would change the future for our community. Today, our team of incredibly skilled surgeons have practiced their craft religiously and made this the epicenter for robotic training in the Gulf South region. Our team has also recently expanded robotic surgery services at Our Lady of the Lake Ascension. The Our Lady of the Lake Robotic Surgery Institute is the result of our surgeons’ many years of dedication to excellence.

We treat a broad range of surgical conditions — from advanced cancer treatment to hernia and gallbladder removal to surgical weight loss. The expertise found here in Greater Baton Rouge has helped train hundreds of surgeons across the nation and earned our surgeons numerous awards and recognition. 

But what means the most? The impact these surgeries have on the daily lives of our patients. With less scaring, shorter recovery times and less complications, robotic surgery is leading the way in caring for our communities.

Why Robotic-Assisted Surgery? Here’s One Example:

Our Lady of the Lake’s surgical teams have access to the most advanced technologies, including the da Vinci Xi Surgical System. Often referred to as a robot, the da Vinci Xi Surgical System is actually a precise, computerized technology controlled by the surgeon. It combines the skill of your surgeon with the best features and benefits of minimally invasive procedures. Patients undergoing robotic-assisted surgery experience shorter hospital stays, less pain, less risk of infection, less blood loss and transfusions, less scarring and a faster return to normal activities.

Our Lady of the Lake’s robotic-assisted surgery areas of specialty include:
