Robotic Surgery

The daVinci® Surgical System is the world’s most advanced, minimally invasive, robotic assisted surgical treatment option available today. It provides an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy, putting our skilled urologists at the controls of a state-of-the-art robotic platform.
