Robotic Surgery Program
Recent advancements in minimally invasive surgical technologies mean that savvy patients have options other than conventional surgery.
Memorial Medical Center has invested in the latest, most precise technology – the da Vinci® Robotic Surgery System – which has been used in various procedures from minimally invasive heart surgery to minimally invasive cancer surgery including prostate, kidney, bladder, gastrointestinal (GI), endometrial and more.
Using the latest da Vinci® model, the Si, surgeons can work in high definition video with 3D vision that magnifies ten times what their eye can see.
