“Our surgical team is made up of pioneers in the minimally invasive robotic surgery field that have applied this approach to multiple specialties. The robotic technologies allow us more accuracy, better patient outcomes, smaller incisions, quicker recovery times,” said Dr. Yitzhack Asulin, MD, FACS, FACOG, Director of Female Pelvic Reconstruction and Robotic Surgery.

“Congratulations to Dr. Probasco and deep appreciation to all of the Institute for Robotic Surgerypractitioners, supporting staff, and ancillary department teams for helping us achieve these distinctions. We will continue collaborating with the SRC to both create the criteria for the new Spine Surgery accreditation model and to ensure that we achieve it.”
