da Vinci® General Surgery

Sometimes medication, lifestyle changes, and other non-surgical treatments are unable to ease your symptoms. If your doctor recommends surgery, da Vinci® surgery may be an option for you. Our board certified surgeons at St.Vincent are using the less invasive robotic-assisted da Vinci Surgical System to treat a variety of conditions.

While traditional surgery, using a large incision, has been the standard approach for many years, the recovery is often more painful, longer, and may include significant time away from your normal daily activities. da Vinci surgery is an innovative, state-of-the-art surgical platform that is solely controlled and operated by your surgeon who is able to more precisely target the anatomy. With help from the da Vinci system, surgeons can perform your surgery through tiny, 1-2 cm incisions with greater vision, precision and control than with traditional surgery.
