At Banner Baywood Medical Center, surgeons use robotics to help patients have better, faster and easier recoveries from difficult procedures. The robot provides surgeons with all the benefits of traditional surgery while enabling them to operate through tiny incisions. With smaller incisions, patients can heal faster.

Our surgeon’s hand movements are seamlessly translated into precise movements for the robotic arms.
The surgical system cannot be programmed, nor can it make decisions on its own. It requires that every surgical maneuver be performed with direct input from the surgeon.
