Southfield, MI, USA- The Vattikuti Foundation adds Providence Hospital, Southfield, Michigan, to the Vattikuti Foundation Robotic Surgery Institute global network. A one million dollar donation, funding a new da Vinci Si surgical robot system- marks the beginning of a new partnership with the Vattikuti Foundation Robotic Surgery Institute. The new partner is called The Providence-Vattikuti Women’s Robotic Surgery Institute. This venture helps expand the Foundation’s current strength in women’s health issues. The VFRSI has long been known as the leader in men’s prostate surgery, thanks to the Vattikuti Urology Institute at Henry Ford Hospital, and Dr. Mani Menon, its founder, and pioneer surgeon.
