Firefly™ Fluorescence Imaging


This imaging system allows your surgeon to identify vessels and tissue that otherwise couldn’t be seen by the human eye. Firefly combines a special video camera and a dye that binds to proteins to make those vessels and tissue visible during minimally invasive surgical procedures using the da Vinci.
Currently, St. Mary’s offers Robotic Surgery for general including single-site, gynecologic and urologic cases.

Advantages of Robotic Surgery
