da Vinci S Surgical System

Robotic Surgery

Sequoia Hospital is committed to providing innovative and exceptional health care to Bay Area patients. The minimally invasive da Vinci S Surgical System provides surgeons with an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy, putting surgeon’s hands at the controls of a state-of-the-art robotic platform. The da Vinci S Surgical System is comprised of computer enhanced technology, robotic hands, two cameras and enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision, steps away from the patient at all times.

Learn more about robotic surgery from Dr Dieter Bruno, MD, medical director of Sequoia’s robotic surgery program.

Procedures include:

  • Prostatectomy (removal of all or part of the prostate gland)
  • Uterine fibroid removal
  • Hysterectomy
  • Pelvic mass removal
  • Nephrectomy (kidney removal)
  • Pyeloplasty (repairing an abnormal connection of the ureter to the kidney)
  • Sacrocolpopexy (reestablishing the normal position to the vagina in a woman with vaginal prolapse)

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter recovery time
  • A faster return to normal daily activities
  • And in many cases, better clinical outcomes
