YAKIMA, Wash. -- A new tool promises a shorter stay at the hospital here in Yakima.

It's a robot that's controlled by doctors allowing smaller incisions during surgery. The robot just started being used by Yakima Regional Hospital for everything from gynecology to general surgery. The hope is that the robot will cause less scarring and a faster recovery. There's only two other robots like this in the state.
