Learn More About Robotic Surgery At TMC

The da Vinci Surgical System, which uses robotic arms to allow for greater precision and dexterity, was brought to TMC in July 2010. It’s not appropriate for all patients, but in many cases, it can spell less blood loss, less pain and minimal incisions.

For hysterectomies, for example, the recovery time can be 2 -4 weeks with the robotic device, instead of the standard 6-8 weeks for the more traditional and extensive surgery.
