As a community-based, teaching system, Providence-Providence Park Hospital merge compassion and patient-centered care with university expertise and treatment. Through our affiliation with St. John Providence we’re among the largest providers of inpatient care in Michigan and the largest employers in metro Detroit. We also belong to Ascension Health, the nation’s largest Catholic and non-profit health system.

Vattikuti Foundation partnership with robotic gynecologic surgeon Dr. Vijayalakshmi Gavini led to the robotic program for St. John, now Ascension Providence Hospital.

Ascension Providence offers robotic and laparoscopic surgery for several gynecologic problems. As descried in their website, Robotic technology at Ascension Providence allows patients that would have their surgeries normally performed via open abdominal incisions to have the same surgeries performed as outpatient procedures or as overnight observation patients. You are often able to return to work within a few weeks and have significantly less discomfort than both abdominal surgery and laparoscopic procedures. Less discomfort minimizes the amount of pain medication needed following surgery.
