The surgical suites at UPMC Horizon and UPMC Jameson are equipped with the latest minimally invasive surgery technology. Our operating room and post-anesthesia care unit (PACU) staff includes nurses, aides, and technicians who have received specialized training in caring for surgery patients.
UPMC Jameson offers minimally invasive robotic surgery with the da Vinci® System. During a robotic surgery procedure, the surgeon controls the robot — which makes very small, precise movements — while viewing everything through a high-definition 3D screen. Because only a small incision is needed for robotic surgery, benefits may include less scarring and reduced pain.
Robotic surgery is available at UPMC Jameson for gallbladder removal and inguinal, incisional, and umbilical hernia repairs.Learn more about robotic surgery
