Our Approach

At Providence St. Joseph Hospital in Eureka our dedication to clinical excellence allows us to offer the latest advancements in robotics technology. This allows us to provide each patient with the most effective and precise robot-assisted surgical options.

What is Robotic Surgery?

Robotic surgery allows doctors to perform many types of complex procedures with more precision, flexibility and control than is possible with conventional techniques. Advantages of robotic surgery include less pain, minimal scarring, decreased risk of complications, shorter hospital stays and faster returns to normal daily activities.

da Vinci® Surgical System

At Providence St. Joseph Hospital, we feature the da Vinci® Surgical System, a state-of-the-art surgical machine that’s revolutionized the way that complex surgeries are performed. With this system, surgeons operate through just a few small incisions and use robotic arms to complete their procedures. 

The da Vinci Surgical System enables your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision and control, thanks to a suite of technological advancements such as a 3D endoscopic camera and wristed instruments with 360 degrees of motion.

Key benefits include: 

  • Greater surgical dexterity
  • Cameras provide advanced depth perception allowing for very specific dissection
  • Firefly technology enables surgeons to visualize anatomical structures without having to make additional incisions, adding an extra layer of safety 

da Vinci robot-assisted surgery is used for the following procedures: 

  • Gall bladder removal 
  • Hernia repair 
  • Colectomy (bowel resection) 
  • Upper digestive system surgery
  • Urologic surgery
  • Gynecologic surgery
