When appropriate, surgeons at Lancaster General Health use minimally invasive surgical techniques, including da Vinci® robotic surgery and laparoscopic surgery which require smaller incisions than open surgery.
The da Vinci® Surgical System allows surgeons to operate with exceptional precision and control while making significantly smaller incisions. This results in less blood loss, reduced pain, and faster recovery. Our da Vinci® surgeons are highly trained and supported by an experienced team of nurses and technicians who know the system. The da Vinci® system is used for several types of surgery, including cardiothoracic, gynecologic, urologic and general surgery.
