Franciscan Health Crawfordsville will soon begin conducting robotic surgeries with the da Vinci Surgical System, becoming the first in the area to offer robotic minimally invasive surgery.
Local physicians who are trained on the da Vinci Surgical System include Jon M. Hoversland, M.D., Scott L. Sinnott, M.D., and Katie L. Towles, M.D., all with Franciscan Physician Network Obstetrics and Gynecology.
“Bringing the da Vinci robot to Crawfordsville allows us to expand our surgical services and provide the most advanced healthcare to Montgomery County,” says Cindy Ratcliff, director of surgical services and central sterile reprocessing at Franciscan Health Crawfordsville. “This marks the beginning of new services that will be offered at the hospital and we are thrilled!”
