Grand View Health Visitor Policy: Updated March 24, 2023.
The Main Entrance and Emergency Department are now open at the Pavilion at Grand View Hospital.
Grand View Health is the only hospital in Upper Bucks county using state of the art da Vinci® robotic surgery technology.
Robotic-assisted surgery is a technological advancement in minimally invasive surgery. Compared to an invasive surgery which is open, a minimally invasive surgery is an operation with small incisions. Small tools are placed inside the body via the small incisions. A small camera is used by the surgical team to view the surgical site on a monitor. Minimally invasive surgery is also called laparoscopic.
Both robotic and laparoscopic procedures are available at Grand View Health.
While both techniques may offer a quicker recovery compared to traditional open surgery, your doctor will recommend the best technique for your procedure.
Grand View Health offers robotic-assisted surgery with the da Vinci®XI™ system from Intuitiv.
The da Vinci® Surgical System was first introduced in 1999 as a robotic tool that enables surgeons to perform complex surgery using a minimally invasive approach.
The da Vinci instruments have small mechanical wrists that bend and rotate, imitating the movements of the human wrist. Surgeons have a better view of the surgical site and greater ability to access hard to reach places.
