da Vinci® Robotic Assisted Surgery

RMC_daVinci_Robotic_SurgeryThanks to the state-of-the-art da Vinci® Surgical System, surgeons at Providence have an effective alternative to traditional open surgery. This technology allows surgeons to operate with unmatched precision, using incisions about the size of a dime. Better yet, da Vinci robotic-assisted surgery can minimize your post-surgical pain, reduce complications and shorten your recovery time.

  • Bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (BSO)
  • Myomectomy

Urology

  • Prostatectomy
  • Nephrectomy
