Robotic Surgery Program
St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center offers minimally invasive robotic surgery. Equipped with the da Vinci® Si™ surgical system, St. Catherine’s physicians now have access to several unique features designed to provide additional clinical benefits and efficiency in the operating room, many of which translate to patient benefits, including faster recovery, less post-surgical pain and reduced risk of complications.
This advanced level of technology takes surgery beyond the limits of the human hand.
This acquisition compliments St. Catherine’s goal of extending minimally invasive surgery to the broadest possible base of patients. St. Catherine now offers robotic options in the following areas: Bariatrics, General Surgery, Urology, Colon/Rectal and Gynecology.

Today, complex conditions such as cancer, uterine prolapse, fibroids and even heart disease can be treated minimally invasively with robotic surgery.
This approach uses a robotic surgical system that provides your surgeon with better vision, precision and control.
It requires only a few small incisions, so you can get back to your life faster -- without the usual recovery following major surgery.
Are You a Candidate for Robotic Surgery?
Only you and your doctor can decide whether robotic surgery is right for you. Bringing this checklist to your appointment may help you to discuss any health concerns with your doctor.
Please check all that apply:
