MountainView’s Las Vegas Institute for Robotic Surgery provides a wide array of robotic-assisted surgery, including the specialty in gynecologic oncology.

MountainView Hospital is the only hospital in Las Vegas to take part in a clinical trial that uses Directed Imaging during minimally invasive hysterectomies for cervical and uterine cancer.
