If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a condition that may require surgery, you owe it to yourself to learn about all your medical options. Our program offers the versatile da Vinci Surgical System. Our program provides surgeons with alternatives to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy, putting a surgeon’s hands at the controls of state-of-the-art robotic platform, enabling surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through tiny incisions with unmatched precision.

The benefits of minimally invasive surgery:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less need for pain medications
  • Less blood loss
  • Less scarring

Robotic-Assisted Surgery for Bariatric, Gastrointestinal, General, Gynecological, Hernia and Urological Procedures

The da Vinci Xi Surgical System brings the most advanced robotic technology to patients and physicians in the area. Many of the minimally invasive procedures allow patients to have their procedure done, then comfortably recover at home the same day. This results in less post-surgical pain, shorter hospital stays and faster return to normal daily activities. Versatile for procedures as wide-ranging as gallbladder, kidney stones, and overactive bladder issues to infertility and cancer treatment.

Although the da Vinci is referred to as a “robot,” the system is not autonomous. It does not perform surgery, and the surgeon is always in complete control of the instruments. With the surgeon sitting at a console just a few feet from the patient, the da Vinci system translates the surgeon’s hand movements into corresponding micro-movements of the surgical instruments. This system enables physicians to perform delicate and complex operations through tiny incisions with enhanced dexterity and control.
