Robot-Assisted Surgery

Saratoga Hospital has been a pioneer in the area of robot-assisted surgery.

Using the advanced da Vinci® Surgical System, our surgeons skillfully manipulate robotic arms and wrists with extraordinary precision and dexterity. In addition, its 3-D magnification and visualization system provides our surgeons with unparalleled views of structures inside the body.

 Seth Alexander Capello, MDRobotic technology gives our patients the ability to opt for minimally-invasive surgeries that usually mean less pain, blood loss and scarring, as well as shorter recovery times and quicker return to normal activities.
