da Vinci...Changing the Experience of Surgery

Lakeland HealthCare has offered robotically-assisted surgery for years — over 700 cases performed to date. To better serve our patients, we recently acquired the newest model robot — the da Vinci Si® Surgical System.

The da Vinci robot performs over 1 million safety checks per second and allows for a whole new level of safer, more complex surgical treatment.

Dr. Benjamin Stockton, Medical Director of the Lakeland Robotics program and the only da Vinci fellowship-trained Urologist in Michiana, leads a team of 7 robotically-trained surgeons.

As a 100 Top Hospital, you can trust that our quality is the highest rated in the nation.
