Throughout the Banner Health system, we offer patients the opportunity for minimally invasive surgery through the use of robotics.
da Vinci® Robotic Surgical System
Banner Health uses the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System, which allows the surgeon to work with four interactive robotic arms along with a high-performance vision system to perform surgeries. Sitting at a surgical console, the surgeon uses the robot's long, spindly arms to easily get into hard-to-reach areas and make dime-sized incisions. The robotic surgical system cannot be programmed, nor can it make decisions on its own.
Benefits of Robotic Surgery
With robotic surgery, patients who once faced several weeks in recovery following surgery can be back on their feet within days. Other benefits may include:
Currently, surgical robots perform minimally invasive procedures in:
