  • A Study to Compare Outcomes of Patients Who Underwent Open and Robotic Prostatectomy for Prostate Cancer Rochester, MN

    The objective of this study is to compare perioperative and oncologic outcomes of patients undergoing open and robotic prostatectomy for prostate cancer.

  • RCT Comparing Robotically-Assisted vs. Manually-Executed Total Knee Arthroplasties Rochester, MN; Scottsdale/Phoenix, AZ

    This study will explore if there are any difference in functional outcomes between two different surgical procedures for total knee replacement: robot-assisted versus manually-executed total knee arthroplasty.

  • Return to Baseline Functional Status in Elderly Women Undergoing Pelvic Organ Prolapse Surgery Scottsdale/Phoenix, AZ

    Our primary aim is to determine the rate of return to baseline functional status 3 months post-operative pelvic organ prolapse surgery in women 65 years or older.  Our secondary aim is to identify preoperative factors that predict failure of return to baseline functional status.

  • EPAD Monitoring of Patients Undergoing Robotic Assisted Laparoscopic Genitourinary Surgery Jacksonville, FL

    Participants to be enrolled in this study will have been scheduled to have laparoscopic genitourinary surgery and EPAD monitoring as part of their clinical care intraoperatively. Patients scheduled for genitourinary surgery are often at risk for developing nerve injuries due to intraoperative positioning. Somatosensory evoked potential devices (SSEP) are commonly used to detect pending injury to peripheral nerves. The purpose of the present study is to use SSEP monitoring to determine the incidence and potential causes of significant changes in SSEP waveforms and correlate these changes with neurologic status of the brachial plexus after robotic surgery.

  • Open Vs Robotic-Assisted Radical Cystectomy: A Randomized Trial Scottsdale/Phoenix, AZ; Rochester, MN

    This is a multi-institutional, randomized trial evaluating oncologic, perioperative, and functional outcomes following two standard care procedures for radical cystectomy. The participants will have one of the standard care procedures as part of their care. The two procedures that will be followed are open radical cystectomy and robotic assisted radical cystectomy (RARC). Open cystectomy is considered to be the more traditional approach. While newer, RARC is considered to be equivalent to open surgery when it is performed by a trained robotics surgeon. The reported complication rates of RARC appear comparable to open surgery. This means there is no significant difference ...

  • A Study to Determine the Feasibility of Transanal Robot-assisted Resection of Distal Colorectal Lesions Using the Medrobotics Flex® System Rochester, MN

    The purpose of this study is to assess the rates of complete en bloc resection and adverse events of the Flex Robotic System for distal colorectal lesions.


  • Ergonomics in Robotic Surgery Rochester, MN

    This study is designed to answer if an ergonomist can configure a daVinci robot console to improve surgeon discomfort. Adjustments to the robot console will be surgeon specific as they are tailored to their individual body type. Measurements will be taken at the time of console configuration.

  • Abdominal Ice Packs for Pain Control and Reduction of Narcotic Use Following Laparoscopic Hysterectomy Rochester, MN

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of using ice packs on the abdomen immediately after laparoscopic hysterectomy surgery on pain control and narcotic pain medication use.

  • A Study to Compare Robotic-Assisted versus Manual Total Knee Arthroplasty Jacksonville, FL

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate clinical, radiographic, and patient-reported outcomes (including patient preference) of the same patient undergoing Robotic-Assisted Total Knee Arthroplasty (RA-TKA) and manual TKA on contralateral knees.

  • A Study to Evaluate Virtual Remote Control Robotic Percutaneous Coronary Intervention Rochester, MN

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether or not robotic percutaneous coronary interventin (PCI) can be performed safely and effectively with the primary operator located in an adjacent control room using a remote control telecommunications system.

  • A Study Assessing Robotic Surgery in the Seated Position for Benign and Malignant Lesions of the Head and Neck Using the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System Rochester, MN

    This study is designed to investigate if transoral surgery with the patient in the seated position utilizing the da Vinci® Robotic Surgical System (Intuitive Surgical, Inc., Sunnyvale, CA) will enable better visualization and expedited removal of benign and malignant tumors of the throat.

  • Using Virtual Reality (VR) Models for Preoperative Planning Jacksonville, FL

    A prospective, randomized, controlled study designed to assess whether digital virtual reality (VR) models, created from existing CT scans and MRIs, provide surgeons with an improved understanding of their patients' anatomy, resulting in more efficient operations (robotic partial nephrectomy) and improved patient care.

  • Transoral Surgery Followed By Low-Dose or Standard-Dose Radiation Therapy With or Without Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With HPV Positive Stage III-IVA Oropharyngeal Cancer Scottsdale/Phoenix, AZ; Rochester, MN

    This randomized phase II trial studies how well transoral surgery followed by low-dose or standard-dose radiation therapy works in treating patients with human papilloma virus (HPV) positive stage III-IVA oropharyngeal cancer. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving radiation therapy with chemotherapy may kill any tumor cells that remain after surgery. It is not yet known how much extra treatment needs to be given after surgery.

  • Atrial Fibrillation in Robotic Assisted Mitral Valve Repair Rochester, MN

    The purpose of this study is:

    1. To assess whether corrective rhythm procedure during robotic mitral valve repair produce reliable long-term results.
    2. To determine the incidence of new onset atrial fibrillation after robotic mitral valve repair.
    3. To determine whether rhythm plays a role in long term valvular function.
    4. As a secondary aim, we would like to study the outcomes of small subset of patients (10 patients) who underwent robotically assisted left atrial mass removal.
    5. As a secondary aim, we also plan to look at our robotic patients and compare them to the conventional repair cohort to study the various echocardiographic parameters.
