Redeemer Health Now Offers Minimally Invasive Surgical Procedures Close to Home


Redeemer Health now offers minimally invasive surgical options that often result in minimal to no scarring and faster recovery time. Candidates for this surgery include individuals who need gynecologic, urologic, thoracic, cardiac, and general surgical procedures.

Surgeons will use a recently acquired structure known as the da Vinci® Xi™ Surgical System to aid in this surgery. The most advanced da Vinci System available, its 3D-HD magnification and sophisticated instrumentation extend the capabilities of a surgeon’s eyes and hands. Surgeons can magnify the view of a surgical area 10 times to what the human eye sees, and with the assistance of this magnification, use tiny, wristed instruments that move like a human hand, but with far greater motion and precision.

“It is vital to provide patients with as many treatment options as possible to make sure they receive care specifically tailored to their needs,” says Catherine Cahill, DO, General Surgeon with Redeemer Health Surgical Associates and the Division Chief of General Surgery and Chair of Robotics Program, Holy Redeemer Hospital. “With the da Vinci robot, we now can provide patients with close-to-home, robotic-assisted surgical care allowing our patients to return to their daily lives more quickly and with less narcotic pain medication following a procedure."
