Robot-Assisted Surgery

Saratoga Hospital became one of the first in the area to provide Robotic Surgery services, setting the pace for surgical excellence in the Capital Region.

The Hospital introduced the da Vinci® Surgical System in 2007. This innovative system enables surgeons to manipulate robotic arms and wrists with extraordinary precision and dexterity. In addition, its 3-D magnification and visualization system provides our skilled surgeons with unparalleled views of structures inside the body.
