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.
