What is Robotic Surgery?
da Vinci Robot

With Robotic surgery, physicians perform surgery using the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System. This system enables them to use micro-size instruments they control with a highly-intuitive console in the operating room instead of performing the procedure by hand.



Robotic Surgery incisions are approximately 1/4 inch in size.


Better surgical outcomes means you're back to being you quicker!


Smaller incisions, quicker recovery and a team of skilled physicians means significantly less pain.

 

What's the Difference?


Open Surgery
Hysterectomy Incision


In this example of a hysterectomy, conventional surgery would require an incision across the abdomen and the use of large, rigid surgical instruments.


Robotic Surgery
Hysterectomy Incisions


Robotic surgery, however, requires only a short series of tiny incisions and the use of micro-precise instruments for a more delicate approach to this complex procedure.

 

Single Site Procedure

Single site surgery enables surgeons to operate through a small incision in the patient's umbilicus. The following procedures are now available with single site technology:
