Robotic Surgery


Robotic surgery is one of the most advanced surgical techniques available today.

The da Vinci robot offers a less invasive alternative to open and laparoscopic surgery. When our board certified physicians use the da Vinci, they gain improved visualization inside the body and more precision and dexterity than the human hand can offer. Those who undergo robotic surgery often experience less pain because the da Vinci requires fewer and smaller incisions.
