Understanding
Robotic Surgery

Our Technology


Our surgeons use the most advanced version of the da Vinci Xi® Surgical System, which includes four robotic arms that can rotate to practically any position. In addition to being able to assist with simple and complex surgical procedures, the system’s instruments provide improved accuracy and advanced imaging using the smallest possible incisions.

As world leaders in robotic surgery, our surgeons work together across specialty areas to provide the best possible care. Our team captures data on the results of all robotic surgical procedures and reviews the information as a group. This constant analysis allows our surgeons to develop and update best practices that improve patient safety, may decrease complications and may reduce recovery time.

Benefits of Robotic Surgery


Robotic surgery can offer many benefits compared to traditional surgery, which may include:

  • Reduced pain
  • Reduced blood loss
  • Reduced need for blood transfusion
  • Reduced damage to surrounding tissues
  • Fewer complications, such as infection and difficulty healing
  • Faster recovery
  • Smaller, less noticeable scars
