Robotic Surgical Services

Shorter hospital stays. Less pain and scarring. A decreased risk of infection. Faster recovery. Less blood loss and fewer transfusions. A quicker return to your daily activities. Patients can find it at Northwest Hospital where skilled, board-certified surgeons offer minimally-invasive surgical treatment options using the state-of-the-art da Vinci Si Robotic Surgical System.

Northwest Hospital is a leader in the use of state-of-the-art minimally-invasive technologies as alternatives to conventional laparoscopic and traditional open surgery methods. Our surgeons perform robotic procedures in the areas of gynecology, urology , gynecologic oncology, thoracic and general surgery.

The da Vinci system offers the latest advancements in computer-enhanced procedures using 3D, high-definition vision and four robotic "hands" that can go where human hands typically cannot. Guided by the surgeon, who sits at a separate viewing console, the da Vinci robot translates the natural movements of the surgeon's hands, wrists and fingers into micro-movements of the robot in order to create and maneuver within smaller incisions, and to perform delicate and complex procedures with greater precision and dexterity.


  • Shorter hospital stays

  • Less pain and scarring

  • Less blood loss and fewer transfusions

  • Faster recovery time

  • Surgical treatment options using the da Vinci robot are dependent on your condition and diagnosis. While many Northwest Hospital surgeons are equipped to perform robotic surgeries, they are also experts in laparoscopic and conventional surgical methods. Please consult with your physician or a provider specializing in robotic surgery to see if you are eligible for a robotic surgical procedure.
