The da Vinci Surgical System

In the past, surgery for some cancers usually meant a lengthy hospital stay and a long recovery. Today, with robotic technology at Genesis, many cancers can be treated as a minimally-invasive procedure.

State-of-the-Art Robotic Technology

The da Vinci Surgical System uses 3D imaging and robotic technology with arms the diameter of a dime to help a surgeon perform precise motions without the need for large open incisions.

Benefits of Minimally Invasive Surgery

A da Vinci surgery typically offers many benefits over traditional surgical procedures, including:

  • Less pain
  • Less scarring
  • A shorter hospital stay
  • Lower risk of infection
  • Faster return to normal daily activities
