K and B Surgical Center is proud to offer the da Vinci System, a sophisticated robotic surgical platform designed to facilitate surgical procedures using a minimally invasive approach.

Robotic surgery provides surgeons with enhanced capabilities, including high-definition 3D vision and a magnified view. The surgeon controls the system, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside the body. Although it is often called a “robot,” the da Vinci System cannot act on its own – surgery is performed 100% by the surgeon.

The da Vinci System has been used successfully worldwide in well over one million surgical procedures to date. The enabling features of the da Vinci  raise the standard of care for surgery. Complex conditions like cancers of the prostate, cervix, uterus, and colon/rectum, can be treated minimally invasively with da Vinci Surgery. There are many potential benefits for patient when comparing da Vinci Surgery to traditional open surgery, including:


  • Shorter surgical stay
  • Less blood loss
  • Less pain
  • Faster recovery
  • Smaller incisions for minimal scarring


By providing surgeons with superior vision, enhanced dexterity, greater precision and ergonomic comfort, the da Vinci Surgical System makes it possible for more surgeons to perform minimally invasive procedures involving complex and delicate dissection or reconstruction.
