Meet our Robots


Dignity Health Sacramento’s high-tech robots allow our da Vinci surgeons to operate with extreme precision and control.

Dignity Health da Vinci Robots "See More"

Meet Seymor. He's a high-tech surgical assistant to our expert team at Mercy San Juan Medical Center. Seymor got his name from a local elementary school student who won the hospital's special naming contest. This da Vinci robot provides surgeons with 3-D images of the patient's organs, providing a far better view of the treatment area than they could get with the naked eye. Literally, Seymor can "see more" than a human.

Seymor is one of five high definition da Vinci® Surgical Systems at Dignity Health's Sacramento hospitals. Mercy San Juan Medical Center has a second da Vinci robot, and Mercy General Hospital, Mercy Hospital of Folsom, and Methodist Hospital of Sacramento each have a da Vinci robot.
