Laparoscopic surgery

Laparoscopic surgery is an advanced surgical technique that allows surgeons to operate through multiple tiny incisions, rather than one large incision. The surgeon is able to visualize the inside of the body using a tiny camera that is placed in the body through a thin, flexible tube called a laparoscope.

Images are projected from the camera onto a screen in the operating room, allowing your surgeon to complete the procedure with complete visualization without the need for opening the body using a traditional large incision.

Robotic surgery

Robotic surgery at Rose Medical Center is performed with the assistance of the da Vinci® Surgical System. This advanced technology works through a high-tech control module that allows your surgeon to make exceptionally delicate movements with their operating instruments. Using robotic technology, surgeons have a greater range of motion, see more clearly during surgery and have better dexterity when utilizing the da Vinci® Surgical System.

We offer robotic procedures in the following specialty areas:

The da Vinci® Surgical System has provided impressive advancements in treating cancer. Rose Medical Center utilizes the da Vinci® Surgical System in treating uterine cancer, kidney cancer and colon cancer.
