da Vinci Robotic Surgery

Minimally Invasive Surgery with Connecticut's Most Experienced Team

Listen to our patients

You have just been diagnosed with a condition that requires surgery. Not long ago, your options might have been limited to traditional surgery with a large open incision, or laparoscopy, which uses small incisions but is typically limited to less-complicated procedures.

Now, there may be a better choice.

Through the use of the da Vinci Si® Surgical System, surgeons at Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center can offer a minimally invasive option for complex surgical procedures. With the latest da Vinci Si® technology and a team of surgeons with extensive experience, robotic surgery can offer a safer, more comfortable and more effective option for patients with prostate cancer, gynecological disorders, colorectal cancer, and many benign conditions including diverticulitis and inflammatory bowel disease.

One of our latest innovations is the introduction of single-incision robotic surgery to treat hernias, gallbladder disease and other abdominal conditions with no visible scar.
