Minimally invasive robotic surgery in Southern California
Riverside Community Hospital has long been committed to investing in the latest technologies. Through the use of the da Vinci® robotic surgery technology, we strive to stay in the forefront of technology by continuing to offer patients the most advanced versions of da Vinci® and other robotic surgical tools
Benefits of robotic surgery
Since robotic surgery requires careful planning and a highly-customized surgical plan unique to each patient’s anatomy, surgeons can operate with unrivaled precision. The benefits to this include:
- Significantly less pain
- Less bleeding
- Smaller incisions
- Less scarring
- Fewer complications
- Quicker recovery time
- A faster return to normal daily activities
As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed, as surgery is both patient- and procedure-specific. While the da Vinci® Surgical System is considered safe and effective, robotic procedures may not be appropriate for every individual. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a condition that may require surgery, please call us at (951) 788-3463 to learn more about the most effective, least invasive surgical treatments available for you.

Robotic surgery hysterectomy
If your doctor recommends hysterectomy, you may be a candidate for our advanced robotic hysterectomy surgery, one of the most effective, least invasive treatment options for a range of uterine conditions.
This advanced technology provides your surgeon better visualization of anatomy, which is especially critical when working around delicate and confined structures like the bladder. Surgeons have a distinct advantage when performing a complex, radical hysterectomy involving adhesions from prior pelvic surgery or non-localized cancer or an abdominal hysterectomy.
Robotic surgery prostatectomy
Robotic surgery for prostate cancer or robotic prostatectomy, has quickly becoming the preferred treatment for removal of the prostate following early diagnosis of prosate cancer.
Though any diagnosis of cancer can be traumatic, the good news is that if your doctor recommends prostate surgery, the cancer was probably caught early. With our robotic surgery technology, the likelihood of a complete recovery from prostate cancer without long-term side effects is, for most patients, better than it has ever been.
Robotic spine surgery
If you or someone you know is suffering from chronic neck or back pain, or has a spinal deformity, robotic spine surgery might be the best option.
The neuroscience center at Riverside Community Hospital was the first hospital in Southern California to offer our patients the latest advanced treatment options for spine surgery with Mazor Robotics X™. The technology allows us to treat some of the most complex spinal and deformity cases better now than ever before.
Spinal conditions we treat
By using the Mazor X™ Guidance System for spine surgery, we are able to provide hope to patients diagnosed with spine conditions such as:
- Degenerative disc disease
- Scoliosis or curvature of the spine
- Herniated disc
- Vertebral fractures
In some cases, these conditions can lead to deformity of the spine and vertebra and your physician may recommend surgery to straighten and correct the spine with the use of implants.
Spinal fusion is the process of two or more vertebrae being fused together, immobilizing them to create a single structure. Spinal fusion is used to treat fractured vertebra, spinal deformity, spinal instability or chronic low back pain. The process entails inserting screws, rods or pieces of bone (known as a graft) to help hold the bone in place.
