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 Tracy Community Hospital has invested in the latest precision technology — the da Vinci® XI Surgical System — that surgeons successfully use in minimally invasive general surgery, including gallbladder removal, hernia repair, and colon and bowel surgery.
Using tiny cuts and robotic-assisted, high-definition 3D video technology, your surgeon’s hand movements at a computerized workstation direct the robotic surgical tools, improving precision and access to the surgical site.
Benefits of the da Vinci robotic system include:
- Smaller scars
- Less blood loss
- Less pain
- Less need for pain medication
- Easier and faster recovery
- Shorter hospital stays
