Robotic Surgery

Since 2006, surgeons at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center have performed revolutionary, state-of-the-art robotic surgery procedures for a wide range of conditions. As our expertise has expanded, so has our technology and capabilities.

Learn how Lahey has become a leader in robotic lobectomy to treat lung cancer.

Lahey is home to two innovative daVinci Xi Robots. The Xi Robots represent the latest technology with even broader capabilities. They can be used across a wide spectrum of minimally invasive surgical procedures and are optimized for complex, multi-quadrant surgeries.


Surgical Robots provide a natural extension of the surgeon’s eyes and hands. The surgeon can visualize the inner body in highly magnified, high-definition 3D, and the instruments guided by the surgeon offer a precision beyond the capabilities of human hands. Through it all, the surgeon is in complete control, because the Robot cannot act on its own in any way.

The goal of robotic surgery is to make procedures more precise, more effective, less invasive, and easier on patients. With a wealth of experience, Lahey surgeons are leaders in procedures performed with the use of surgical Robots.
