The Robotic Institute at Kettering Health Network

When your doctor recommends surgery, it's important to know all of your surgical options to make the best decision. Over the last two decades, robotic surgery has emerged as a minimally invasive option, with advanced precision.

Cutting Edge Medicine, Should Mean Less Cutting

Robotic-assisted surgery is a type of minimally invasive surgery that uses the latest in surgical technologies for performing routine and complex surgery. Surgeons at Fort Hamilton Hospital, Kettering Medical Center, and Soin Medical Center practice robotic surgery, operating through just a few small incisions.

Benefits of minimally invasive surgery:

  • A Faster Return to Normal Daily
  • Activities
  • In Many Cases, Better Clinical
  • Outcomes
  • Significantly Less Pain
  • Less Blood Loss
  • Less Scarring
  • Shorter Recovery Time

Kettering Health Network uses the da Vinci System®. The system features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and tiny wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. As a result, robotic surgery enables your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity, and control.

Your surgeon is 100% in control of the robot, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body.

Physicians have used the da Vinci System successfully worldwide in approximately 1.5 million various surgical procedures to date.
