Ridgeview Adds 'Robot' to Surgical Team

Surgeons performed the first robotic procedure at Ridgeview Medical Center using the da Vinci® Surgical System in February 2011. This new surgical alternative introduces breakthrough technology to a surgical program that is already recognized for its quality of care—and a program that continues to expand to meet the needs of patients.
