Rise in Robotic Surgery

 MUSC Health partnered with Intuitive Surgical to purchase five new state-of-the-art da Vinci XI robots through a value-based model. We now have one of the most comprehensive robotic programs in the country and the only hospital in the state offering robotic surgery in almost all surgical specialties. Rana Pullatt, M.D., who has performed more than 1,200 robotic surgeries, serves as the clinical director of bariatric and robotic surgery at MUSC Health. In FY21, his dedication to training and mentoring our faculty, residents and fellows on the new robots has been significant. Nearly all of our divisions now incorporate robotic surgery to treat complex cases, offering the least invasive surgeries with improved outcomes and quicker recovery.
