We’re honored to stand by your side. Our highly skilled Surgical Care team will work hard to find the treatment option that's right for you.

Shull Institute for Surgical Robotics

Almost two decades ago, we were the first hospital in a five-state area to use the da Vinci surgical robot, allowing Kansas City residents to benefit from minimally invasive techniques and shorter recovery times. The Shull Institute for Surgical Robotics continues to offer robotic procedures that help you get back to life sooner. We take a team approach, our surgeons and staff alike, to improve your experience and surgical outcomes.

The da Vinci is used for a variety of procedures at AdventHealth Shawnee Mission including urology, gynecology, pelvic floor reconstructions oftentimes to treat issues such as incontinence or prolapse, as well as benign and cancerous surgeries, including gynecologic, colorectal and general surgeries. Surgeons are able to operate the da Vinci from a computer that controls a surgical arm unit. The magnification of the camera is 10 times higher than what can be seen by the human eye.

Our number one goal is to ensure you stay healthy. Whether your passion is cycling, walking the dog or hanging out with family, we will help you to meet your wellness goals so that you can return to a normal routine as quickly as possible following robotic surgery.
