Robotic surgery (da Vinci® Surgical System)

Robotic surgery (da Vinci® Surgical System) for pancreatic cancer

Robotic surgery is another minimally invasive option for complex surgery within the abdomen. The da Vinci® Surgical System "robot" enables our surgeons to remove difficult-to-reach tumors in the abdomen with increased precision, vision, dexterity and control.

Because the da Vinci System requires only a few small "band-aid" incisions, and offers greater vision, precision and control for the surgeon, cancer patients can often recover sooner, move on to additional treatments if needed, and get back to life quicker.
