Robotic-Assisted Liver Surgery
Hoag-USC surgeons continues to lead the way in robotic-assisted surgery by being the first in Southern California to perform this sophisticated, minimally invasive surgical approach for treating complex liver cancer. Being a high-volume gastrointestinal surgery program enables Hoag-USC liver cancer experts to achieve a technical skill level not all facilities can match.
The new da Vinci®S HDTM Surgical System offers a highly precise, minimally invasive alternative to traditional surgery, which is why Hoag is pleased to be a pioneer in this expanded application to liver surgery. However, robotic-assisted surgery is not appropriate for every patient needing liver cancer surgery. Since the goal is a successful surgical result, each patient is evaluated individually to determine if robotic-assisted surgery is the best option for the individual patient.
