Robotic Surgery

Bozeman Health Robotics Program

Bozeman Health has access to the da Vinci® Surgical System in our operating rooms making surgical procedures less invasive and facilitating faster recovery times. Robotic surgery represents a significant advancement from traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy. Currently, the da Vinci® Surgical System is being used by our general surgeons, urologists, gynecologists, and obstetricians.

Benefits to our patients may include:

  • Smaller incisions
  • Shorter recovery time
  • Less pain and scarring
  • Faster return to regular activities

Having the da Vinci® Surgical System at Bozeman Health enables our community to receive top-quality care right here in the Gallatin Valley.

Robotic-assisted surgery with the da Vinci is a win-win for those needing a prostatectomy. I have excellent control and using the robot allows for smaller incisions and minimal pain, which means less time off and more time living for my patients.
