COMING SOON: Robotic Surgery!

Posted Date: 1/3/2018

UPMC Pinnacle Hanover will soon be offering the da Vinci® system as a minimally invasive surgical option. The da Vinci® System has brought minimally invasive surgery to more than 3 million patients worldwide. da Vinci® technology is changing the experience of surgery for people right here in central Pennsylvania. 

With the da Vinci® Surgical System, surgeons operate through just a few small incisions. The da Vinci® System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and tiny wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand. As a result, da Vinci® enables your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision and control. The da Vinci® System represents the latest in surgical and robotics technologies. Your surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci® System at all times. da Vinci® technology translates your surgeon’s hand movements into smaller, precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body. Initially, we will offer the da Vinci® for select general surgeries (such as hernias, gallbladder, liver, and pancreas) and gynecologic surgeries.
