Robotic-Assisted Procedures at McLaren Port Huron

At McLaren Port Huron, we know how important it is for our patients to get back their everyday lives. which is why we make it a priority to invest in the latest robotic surgery technology, and why we are the only hospital in the area that has two da Vinci Surgical Systems on site.

Our experienced surgeons use the state-of-the-art da Vince robotic technology to guide their movements with an exceptional level of precision.

The level of precision allows us to perform a wide range of minimally invasive procedures, including hernia repair, gallbladder removal, colon surgery, prostatectomy, thoracic surgery, endometriosis, hysterectomy, and bariatric surgery, so that patients experience less pain and faster recovery times.

Advantages of robotic-assisted surgery:

  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Less pain
  • Less risk of infection
  • Faster recovery
  • Less scarring
  • Reduced blood loss and transfusions
  • Speedier return to daily activities

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a condition that may require surgery, you owe it to yourself to learn about all of your medical options, including the most effective, least invasive surgical treatments available. The da Vinci® Surgical System provides surgeons with an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy, putting a surgeon's hands at the controls of a state-of-the-art robotic platform.
