Meet the da Vinci Surgical Team at UMCPP

Surgeons at UMCPP use our da Vinci Surgical System® to perform a full range of gynecologic, urologic, thoracic and colorectal procedures — including prostatectomy, hysterectomy, lobectomy and colectomy. Surgeries performed using da Vinci are generally less invasive than traditional surgeries and increase the likelihood of a fast recovery.
