Hoag Family Cancer Institute introduced a new surgical robot to community
members last month, which is used during minimally invasive procedures.
The daVinci robot was unveiled at an event in September, to coincide with
Prostate Awareness Month. According to hospital officials, the daVinci
robot is used for a variety of minimally invasive surgical procedures
including urologic cancer, lung cancer, heart valve repair and general surgery.
The daVinci robot, according to hospital officials, is known for offering
better outcomes to qualified patients.
