Minimally invasive surgery
Smaller incisions can have big benefits. The hospital offers minimally invasive procedures, such as laparoscopic and endoscopic surgery.
Minimally invasive surgery may lead to faster healing and less scarring. This is because surgeons make small incisions. The advanced video equipment gives surgeons a clearer view of the surgical area. Instruments are used to perform the surgery through the incisions.
A robotic surgery center
Surgeons at Summerlin Hospital use the robotic-assisted da Vinci® Surgical System. The surgeon is in complete control. The system allows doctors to perform complex procedures using smaller incisions than standard surgery. Tiny robotic tools are inserted through the small incisions.
An Ion robotic system from Intuitive offers new fiber optic sensors designed to enhance surgical precision. The robotic-assisted bronchoscopy model, for example, can sense a cancerous growth or lung nodule smaller than a centimeter. Plus, Ion 3D technology can reach deeper into certain locations in the lungs.
Patients may experience:
- Less pain
- Less blood loss
- Lower risk of infection
- Shorter recovery times
- Quicker return to work and daily activities
- Reduced scarring
Summerlin Hospital's robotic-assisted options include:
- Colorectal surgery
- Gallbladder surgery
- Gynecologic surgery

Advanced prostate cancer treatment
We offer high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) technology for prostate cancer patients. With this minimally invasive treatment, sound waves target cancer cells and destroy them.
No radiation is needed and it's a one-time, outpatient surgery. Patients may have fewer side effects than with traditional cancer surgery and treatments. Summerlin Hospital was the first in Nevada to offer this treatment.
