Surgeons from the Center for Robotic and Minimally Invasive Reconstructive Surgery at Boston Children's Hospital perform a wider array of procedures than at any other pediatric hospital in the world.
Our surgeons perform complex reconstructive procedures utilizing minimally invasive techniques, and have worked with engineers and medical device manufacturers to develop and refine the robotic equipment specifically for use in children. In addition, Children's specialists train surgeons from around the world on its use.
