Da Vinci Robotic Surgery

Robotic surgery enables our surgeons to perform surgery through tiny incisions, providing a safe and less-invasive alternative to open surgery, which requires larger incisions. Smaller incision means faster healing time, so you can get back to your life more quickly.

Using the da Vinci robotic surgery system, surgeons operate with greater visualization, magnification, and dexterity. Patient benefits include faster recovery time, less pain, less scarring and less risk of infection.

Sentara Norfolk General Hospital was the first hospital in the Hampton Roads region to offer robotic surgery for cardiac and urology procedures. Da Vinci robotic surgery is now available at several hospitals throughout Hampton Roads.
