daVinci Surgical System Overview

The da Vinci® Surgical System provides Penn State Hershey surgeons with an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy, putting a surgeon's hands at the controls of a state-of-the-art robotic platform. Our surgeons can perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision.

The goals with robotic-assisted surgery are to give the patients the opportunity for:

  • Less pain, blood loss, and scarring
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Faster recovery
  • Earlier return to normal daily activities

The Penn State Hershey Robotics Program provides patients with excellence in robotic surgery:

  • Multi-specialty teams in urology, pediatric urology, cardiothoracic, gynecology, reproductive endocrinology and ear/nose/throat
  • Dedicated surgeons trained in the use of the latest robotic-assisted surgery techniques
  • Experienced staff and support for multiple robotic-assisted procedures
  • The most up-to-date robotic technology available.
