Profile:

Dr. Toursarkissian uses the da Vinci robotic surgical system. He can perform robotic GYN surgery at Redlands Community Hospital or Loma Linda University Hospital. 

For complex hysterectomies and other gynecologic procedures, robot-assisted surgery with the da Vinci® Surgical System may be the most effective, least invasive treatment option. Through tiny, 1-2 cm incisions, surgeons using the da Vinci System* can operate with greater precision and control, minimizing the pain and risk associated with large incisions while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.
