Robotic Surgery

Robotic-assisted surgeries, like those incorporating the da Vinci® surgical system, allow PinnacleHealth's surgeons to perform complex procedures with great precision, resulting in less pain, less blood loss, shorter hospital stays and quicker recovery time.

Expertise in Advanced Robotic Surgery

The surgeons at PinnacleHealth are experts in the use of robotic technology for a wide range of surgical procedures and are consistently ranked among the best in the field of robotic surgery. Having pioneered robotic surgery in Central PA, PinnacleHealth offers the most advanced robotic surgery on the latest da Vinci ® SI robotic surgery systems.


The da Vinci® Surgical System

The benefits of minimally invasive  surgery are greatly enhanced through the use of the da Vinci® Surgical System. This system allows the use of micro-instruments which are connected to robotic arms, and are manipulated remotely to mimic hand movements. Motions are tracked on high-definition monitors, giving surgeons a clear, unobstructed view of each step in the process.

Because the tools used in da Vinci® robot-assisted surgeries are inserted through the tiniest of incisions, surgical procedures using the system cause minimal impact to the patient, allowing for a shorter hospital stay, quicker recovery, and return to normal activities sooner than with a traditional open surgery.

At PinnacleHealth, we are proud to offer three newly updated surgical suites which feature the da Vinci® Surgical System, all three within Harrisburg Hospital. These surgical suites are used for a number of robotic surgical procedures, including:
