COMING SOON: Robotic Surgery

UPMC Pinnacle Hanover will soon be offering the da Vinci® system as a minimally invasive surgical option. The da Vinci® System has brought minimally invasive surgery to more than 3 million patients worldwide. da Vinci® technology is changing the experience of surgery for people right here in central Pennsylvania. Our local physicians and staff are now in training to be able to offer this option to Hanover and the surrounding communities.

With the da Vinci® Surgical System, surgeons operate through just a few small incisions. The da Vinci® System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and tiny wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand. As a result, da Vinci® enables your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision and control. The da Vinci® System represents the latest in surgical and robotics technologies. Your surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci® System at all times. da Vinci® technology translates your surgeon’s hand movements into smaller, precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body. Initially, we will offer the da Vinci® for select general and gynecologic surgeries.
