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.

Sutter Health has invested in the latest precision technology — the da Vinci® Surgical 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
Da Vinci certified surgeons in the Sutter Health network serve the San Francisco Bay Area, including San Francisco and Marin counties, as well as the entire Northern California region.
