Lakeview Regional offers robotic surgical procedures for a wide variety of urological, gynecological, general surgical and oncology conditions, as well as for bariatric (weight loss) surgery.

Lakeview Hospital also offers the Single-Site System™ which enables a physician to reduce the traditional number of incisions from 4 down to one tiny incision through the belly button that is less than 1 inch in length.

An alternative to open surgery

With significantly less pain and fewer side effects, the da Vinci® can provide smaller incisions, reduced risk of infection, shorter hospital stays and a quicker return to normal activities. And in many cases, better outcomes.
