Your immediate post-procedure care takes place in dedicated recovery rooms, or post-anesthesia care units (PACUs), at all surgical facilities. The surgical services we offer include:

Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery

The use of camera technologies and other techniques to minimize surgical incisions has transformed surgical care with great benefits for patients. Minimally invasive surgery is now the norm for many procedures and can mean faster healing, less pain and shorter recovery times. You may also have less risk of infection, blood loss and scarring.

The robotic da Vinci Xi Surgical System® at Yuma Regional has high-definition 3D vision that enables your surgeon to operate with greater accuracy and control, yielding incredibly magnified images and giving your surgeon a close-up view of the surgery field. The robot stands over the patient while your surgeon skillfully manipulates four robotic arms that can hold numerous instruments or cameras.
