Robotic Surgery for Cancer

Robotic-assisted surgery offers patients a less invasive, more precise means of getting surgical treatment for cancer. Mease Countryside Hospital features the daVinci® Surgical System, which is the most advanced robotic technology available, for the treatment of prostate cancer, gynecological cancer and uterine cancer. Robotic surgery may not be the ideal treatment option for some patients; however, additional minimally invasive surgeries are available for patients who are not candidates for robotic surgery.
