The Division of Robotic Surgery at Sinai Hospital, recently designated a da Vinci® General Surgery Epicenter by Intuitive Surgical Inc., offers patients a wide range of surgical procedures. With the assistance of the da Vinci Surgical System, surgeons can operate through tiny incisions with greater vision, precision and control than ever.
The benefits of robotic surgery are similar to the benefits of minimally invasive surgery: smaller incisions, less pain and scarring, less risk for blood loss, and a shorter recovery time.
At Sinai Hospital, these general surgery procedures are performed robotically:
- Bariatric (weight loss) surgery
- Colon resection (colectomy)
- Gallbladder removal (cholecystectomy)
- Hernia repair (diaphragmatic, inguinal and incisional)
- Gynecologic procedures
- Urologic procedures
In addition to general surgery, physicians at Sinai use the da Vinci system to treat gynecologic and prostate conditions.
