On the Cutting Edge
Understanding da Vinci Robotic Surgery
Our investment in the latest robotic technology enables specially trained surgeons to do things once deemed impossible, such as removing kidney tumors without removing the entire kidney.
During robotic surgery, your surgeon’s finger movements at a computerized workstation direct the robotic surgical instruments, improving precision and access to the surgical site. Dedicated teams of da Vinci surgeons are trained in procedures including:
- Colon cancer
- Rectal cancer
Surgeons offer the latest in laparoscopic surgery, which uses small incisions, a thin, lighted tube called a laparoscope or videoscope and specially designed surgical tools. This technique provides visibility and access inside a surgical site. It also lessens scars and blood loss.
We offer laparoscopy for many procedures, including:
- Colorectal cancer surgery
- Gallbladder surgery
