Until recently, many conditions required traditional, large-cut surgery. New robotic technology offers a minimally invasive option that can greatly reduce your hospital stay and recovery time.

California Pacific Medical Center has invested in the latest precision technology — the da Vinci® Robotic Surgery System — that surgeons successfully use in everything from minimally invasive heart surgery to minimally invasive gynecologic, urologic and gastrointestinal procedures.
Using tiny cuts and robotic-assisted video technology, your surgeon’s hand movements at a computerized workstation direct the robotic surgical tools, improving precision and access to the surgical site. A second surgeon typically remains at your side to assist.
Benefits of the da Vinci® robotic system include:
- Smaller scars
- Less blood loss
- Less pain
- Easier and faster recovery
- Shorter hospital stays
The CPMC Robotic Surgery Department and da Vinci® certified surgeons serve the San Francisco Bay Area, including San Francisco and Marin counties, as well as the entire Northern California region.
