Robotic Surgical System

Robotic-assisted da Vinci surgery is now available at Adventist Health St. Helena. It is a minimally invasive surgery that allows our specially trained surgeons to use the da Vinci surgical system to perform a wide range of delicate and complex operations through a few small incisions. We use this innovative technology for many types of surgical needs, including general surgery, gynecology and urology.
