da Vinci Si Surgical System
Sequoia Hospital is committed to providing innovative and exceptional health care to Bay Area patients. The minimally invasive da Vinci Si Surgical System provides surgeons with an alternative to traditional open surgery.
Using the da Vinci Si Surgical System, surgeons can now operate through a single small incision, even smaller than traditional laparoscopy. The da Vinci Si System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and special wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist, enabling your doctor to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity, and control.
For the patient, benefits may include: 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.
Robotics surgery is used for a wide variety of conditions including:
- Women’s Health – When medicine, lifestyle changes and other non-invasive treatments cannot ease your symptoms, your doctor may recommend gynecologic surgery. Women facing gynecologic conditions such as fibroid tumors, endometriosis, heavy menstrual bleeding, ovarian cysts, cancer and pelvic prolapsed often undergo robotic surgery.

- Men’s Health – If you have been diagnosed with prostate cancer and are considering surgery, you may be a candidate for removal of your prostate gland. Talk to your doctor about how minimally invasive robotic surgery may cure your cancer as well as help preserve erectile nerve function.
- General Surgery – There are many other conditions that could benefit from robotic surgery, such as bladder cancer, kidney cancer, and other kidney disorders. If you need surgery, ask your doctor if robotic surgery would be an option for you.
