Southern Cross Hospitals’
da Vinci® system for robotic surgery

An advanced technology offering patients a minimally invasive option for more complex or delicate surgery.

Robotic surgery

Robotic surgery, or robotically-assisted surgery, allows doctors to perform a range of complex procedures with increased precision and enhanced control and is usually associated with operations performed through small incisions. This is known as minimally invasive surgery.

The da Vinci® system is powered by robotic technology that allows a surgeon’s hand movements to be scaled, filtered and translated into precise movements of the EndoWrist instruments working at the surgical site. This is designed to minimise risk of complications in surgery.

Locations and surgeons

Southern Cross Hospitals’ robotically-assisted surgical systems are located in Auckland on our North Harbour hospital campus and in the largest hospital on our network in Christchurch.

These advanced systems and related technologies support the delivery of range of surgical services at each location, where leading independent medical specialists with appropriate accreditation operate using the robotic systems.
