Robotic Surgery

Saratoga Hospital has been a pioneer in robotic surgery

Using the advanced da Vinci® Surgical System, our surgeons skillfully manipulate robotic arms and wrists with extraordinary precision and dexterity. In addition, the system's 3-D magnification and visualization technology 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.
