Institute for Robotic Surgery

The physician-guided da Vinci Robotic Surgical System provides an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy, putting a surgeon's hands at the controls of a state-of-the-art robotic platform. The result is a minimally invasive procedure offering doctors advanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.

The benefits of da Vinci Robotic Surgery are:

  • Faster recovery
  • Smaller incisions
  • Less scarring
  • Significantly less post-surgery pain
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less blood loss

Renown Institute for Robotics offers da Vinci Surgery for multiple specialties, including heart, colorectal, lung, prostate, gynecologic cancer and gynecology. Click here for information about general surgical services.
