Advanced Robotics Institute

Our team at the Advanced Robotics Institute are leaders in the field of robotic-assisted surgery. Located inside Baton Rouge General’s Pennington Cancer Center, we give patients treatment options that can get them back to their best self.

The Advanced Robotics Institute has a dual focus: general surgery, including gallbladder and hernia repairs, and specialized surgical care for cancer, complex hernia cases and conditions affecting the “foregut,” which, put simply, means the esophagus and stomach.
