About Robotic Surgery

Da Vinci robotic surgery is a great option for people with busy lives who need to return to normal activities as quickly as possible after surgery.

Robotic surgery is a minimally invasive procedure. It is performed by your surgeon using a control panel that shows a high-resolution video of the area being treated. The robotic arms are controlled by your surgeon and hold delicate surgical tools. They move with greater precision than the human hand. This precision allows for more accuracy and smaller incisions.

Benefits of Robotic Surgery

Robotic surgery uses a laparoscopic approach. Patients have better outcomes because they have a:

• Faster recovery

• Shorter hospital stay

• Quicker return to daily activities

• Less pain

• Smaller scars

• Less blood loss

• Lower risk of unwanted side effects

The Loma Linda Difference

Loma Linda University Health has been a leader in robotic surgery since 2004, when we put in the first da Vinci robotic surgery system. Today, surgeons at Loma Linda do more robotic surgeries each year than any other teaching hospital west of the Mississippi.

At Loma Linda, we deliver whole person care. Our surgeons see each patient as more than just a diagnosis. For more information about robotic surgery, see Frequently Asked Questions or What To Expect Before and After Surgery.
