— Mercy Hospital is now one of only five hospitals in the world to have the new da Vinci Si HD dual-console robotic surgical system.

Dr. Nick Gianitsos is one of the physicians qualified to use the device and says it will benefit patients, the hospital, and the community.


One of the features allows two physicians to operate on a single patient. Gianitsos says this allows for better outcomes of surgery and reduced hospital stays.


Gianitsos says when Mercy Health System decided to buy one of the devices, it had already made the decision to make Janesville a destination for robotic surgery.


An open house, Friday, June 26th, 11 am - 6 pm, in the Mercy Hospital cafeteria will give residents a chance to see video demonstrations of the device.
