Highland Hospital is expanding how it uses robots for surgeries. Highland is now the first hospital in the region to offer single-site gynecological surgeries.
The process makes just one incision, leaving a scar smaller than an inch. Doctors say reducing the number of cuts from four to one saves the patient painful recovery time.
Rochester General Hospital also performs single-site surgeries.
