What makes a talented surgeon exceptional?
Meet our surgeons and learn more about their training, experience and passion for caring for patients.
At Mercy General Hospital, specially trained surgeons are using the state-of-the-art da Vinci® Surgical System to perform complicated surgical procedures with a degree of precision, control and dexterity traditional surgeries simply can't match. Some of the benefits to patients include:
- Small incisions, meaning scarring is drastically reduced
- Shorter recovery times, measured in days instead of weeks
- Reduced pain and potential for complications
Because the benefits to our patients are so extraordinary, we're continually expanding our robotic surgery program with new procedures and more specialists, so more patients can receive minimally invasive treatment rather than complex open surgery.
More experience in more robotic specialties
Surgeons affiliated with Mercy General Hospital perform robotic-assisted surgeries in the following specialties:
- Cardiac Surgery
- Gynecologic Oncology
- Thoracic Surgery
In addition, surgeons at our sister hospital, Mercy San Juan Medical Center, utilize da Vinci Surgery for colorectal surgical procedures.
As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed, as surgery is unique to each patient and procedure. The da Vinci Surgical System is considered safe and effective, but may not be appropriate for everyone. Always talk to your doctor about all treatment options, as well as the associated benefits and risks.
