da Vinci gastrectomy
Also known as:
Minimally-invasive surgery using the da Vinci Surgical System is an effective alternative to traditional open and laparoscopic surgery that may allow physicians to provide patients with the best of both open approaches.
With the assistance of the da Vinci Surgical System, surgeons can now operate through a few tiny (one to two centemeter) incisions with greater precision and control. da Vinci helps surgeons minimize the pain and risk associated with traditional surgery, while increasing the chances for a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.
Providence Health & Services was the first hospital system in Oregon to invest in robotic technology, leading a breakthrough in minimally invasive surgical care. While laparoscopic techniques are ideal for simple surgeries, the unmatched precision of the da Vinci® Surgical System enables our credentialed surgeons to conduct more complex procedures, where previously an open surgery was the only choice.
