About Robotic-Assisted Surgery at Griffin Hospital

In 2018, Griffin Health started a Robotic-Assisted Surgery Program and added the da Vinci® Xi Surgery System - the most up-to-date, advanced surgical robot available - to expand its range of services and offer additional minimally invasive surgical options to patients. da Vinci Surgery benefits patients by offering shorter hospital stays, less blood loss, fewer complications, less need for narcotic pain medicine, faster recovery, and smaller incisions associated with minimal scarring. Griffin uses robotic-assisted surgery for bariatric, cardiac, colorectal, general, gynecologic and head and neck surgeries. For more information, visit griffinhealth.org.
