Offering the latest in minimally invasive robotic-assisted surgery
If you or a loved one need surgery, you owe it to yourself to learn about all of your medical options, including the most effective, least invasive surgical treatments available.
Minimally invasive robotic-assisted surgery has been available at Inova for more than a decade and has many advantages over traditional open surgery. Inova utilizes the da Vinci® surgical system for its robotic-assisted surgeries. This state-of-the-art technology is appropriate for many types of surgery and is a popular alternative to traditional open surgery and a variation on conventional minimally invasive surgery.
Robotic-assisted surgery puts your surgeon's hands at the controls of a robotic platform so refined that even the most complex, delicate procedures can be performed through very small incisions with unmatched precision.
Inova performs more robotic-assisted procedures each year than any other hospital system in Northern Virginia and consistently receives high patient satisfaction scores. That means our unparalleled expertise creates the best possible surgical experience for you.
