Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgery

Some patients may qualify to have their surgery performed with the revolutionary da Vinci Surgical Robot.

The da Vinci system represents the latest in surgical and robotics technology. Your surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci system at all times. da Vinci technology translates your surgeon’s hand movements into smaller, precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body.
