Robotic Assisted Surgery

KVON - daVinci Robot Surgery Interview

Queen of the Valley Medical Center is excited to offer patients a new, minimally-invasive option for certain gynecological, urological and general surgeries using the latest technology in robotic surgery, the da Vinci® Xi™ Surgical System. Advantages of having robotic surgery include:

  • Faster recovery time
  • Minimal scarring
  • Shorter length of stay in the hospital

Ask your physician if robotic surgery is right for you! You may be eligible for robotic surgery if you need any of the following procedures:


  • Hysterectomy
  • Myomectomy (fibroid removal)
  • Sacrocalpapexy (pelvic organ prolapse repair)


  • Kidney Mass Removal
  • Radical Prostatectomy (prostate removal)
  • Partial Nephrectomy (kidney removal)

General Surgery

  • Single-Site Gallbladder
  • Hernia Repairs and Abdominal Wall Reconstruction
  • Colon and Intestinal
  • Anti-Reflux

The da Vinci Xi system replaces the existing robotic and minimally invasive technology that has been in place at Queen of the Valley for the past decade. The da Vinci Xi improves the surgeon’s dexterity and visibility and the endoscope, which attaches to any of the robot’s four arms, displays a high-definition, 3D image, enhancing the surgeon’s vision into the inside of the body. This device offers physicians a fuller range of motion than is possible with the human hand, without any tremors. As of December 1, 2016, Queen of the Valley is the only robotics program with da Vinci Xi technology in Napa/Solano counties.
