In This Section

Interested in a shorter hospital stay with a faster recovery period? Sophisticated, robotic-assisted surgery at could provide you with exactly that. WellSpan surgeons are utilizing the minimally-invasive da Vinci® robotic surgery system for a number of advanced surgical procedures. The superior visualization, enhanced dexterity, greater precision and ergonomic comfort of the da Vinci® Surgical System makes it possible for your surgeon to perform complex procedures through a few tiny openings. As a result, you will probably be able to get back to normal activities faster without the usual prolonged recovery following major surgery.

The da Vinci Robotic Surgery system offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss and need for transfusion
  • Fewer complications including lower risk of infection
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Quicker recovery and return to normal activities
  • Smaller incisions resulting in minimal scaring

Though it is often called a "robot," the da Vinci robotic system cannot act on its own. Instead, your surgery is performed entirely by the surgeon.
