Rochester Regional Health has lead the way in minimally invasive, robotic-assisted surgical treatments since 2004.
Robotic-assisted surgery puts precision control in the hands of our surgeons at Rochester General Hospital, Unity Hospital and Newark-Wayne Community Hospital.
Using the da Vinci® Surgical System, surgeons operate through small incisions with tiny wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater like a human hand. The 3D high-definition system magnifies the surgeon’s view, which allows greater control, resulting in a host of benefits:
- Less trauma to the body
- Minimizes blood loss and need for transfusions
- Less post-operative pain and discomfort
- Shortens hospital stays
- Lowers risk of infection
- Accelerates recovery and return to normal daily activities
- Less scarring
