ROSA Neurosurgical Robot

Rady Children’s Division of Neurosurgery is among a select group of hospitals using ROSA, a surgical robot assistant. With this amazing technology, neurosurgeons can perform epilepsy surgery and other procedures that are minimally invasive, highly precise and very safe – and the child experiences no pain. As a result, more children and their families may consider epilepsy surgery as a treatment option.
