Robotic surgery is an advanced method of surgery using the da Vinci® robotic system to perform minimally invasive procedures. The robot is a sophisticated surgical tool that provides our surgeons with enhanced vision, accuracy, and precision in performing complex operations. The robotic surgery team at Portneuf Medical Center is comprised of not just surgeons, but also a specially designated team of nurses, technicians, and operating room staff who have experience performing hundreds of robotic surgeries each year since 2011. Our team approach and depth of experience allow us to excel in surgical quality and safety.

  • Benefits of Robotic Surgery
  • Faster recovery
  • Quicker return to daily activities
  • Less post-operative pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Smaller incisions with less scarring
  • Reduced risk of surgical site infection
  • Shorter hospital stays
