The Da Vinci® Minimal Invasive Surgery

The da Vinci Surgical System is a breakthrough in surgical technology, allowing surgeons to use a minimally invasive approach, even when performing complex surgical procedures. For patients, this may mean less pain, less need for blood transfusions, shorter hospital stays and quicker recovery.

A specially trained surgeon guides the robot from several feet away, using a high-tech, 3-D visual interface and specialized hand controls. This system enables smooth, extremely precise surgical techniques, even in very small areas.

Potential Benefits:

  • Less pain
  • Less risk of infection
  • Faster recovery
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Quicker return to normal daily activity
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer transfusions
  • Better surgery experience 
Only the da Vinci system enables new, minimally invasive options for complex surgical procedures

The da Vinci Surgical System is a major advancement in medical technology providing surgeons superior visualization, greater surgical precision and optimal performance of minimally invasive surgery (MIS), ultimately enhancing patient care with faster recovery to get you back on your feet and back to enjoying your normal daily activities.

Is Surgery in Your Future?

Deciding which surgeon and hospital will give you the best chance for the best possible outcome, is of primary concern. You'll also want a surgical experience that will be the least disruptive to your everyday life. When discussing your options with your doctor, ask about the advantages of the minimally invasive robotic surgery.

Gynecologic Surgery

The da Vinci system provides breakthrough capabilities, allowing more gynecologic surgeons to use a minimally invasive approach in complex procedures, such as a Hysterectomy. The da Vinci is one of the most effective, least invasive treatment options for a range of uterine conditions. Surgeries performed using the da Vinci enables surgeons to perform with unmatched precision and control using roboticGynecologic Surgery technology requiring only a few small incisions.

Gynecologic Surgeries include:

  • Hysterectomy 
  • Sacrocolpopexy

Urologic Surgery

The da Vinci system provides breakthrough capabilities that allow many surgeons to use a minimally invasive approach, even when performing complex procedures, such as a Prostatectomy. Robotic-assisted visualization, ability, precision and control enable surgeons to perform a wide array of urologic procedures through small incisions while achieving better clinical outcomes.Urologic Surgery

Urologic Surgeries include:

Partial Nephrectomy 

Deaconess Clinic Urology

Da Vinci surgical procedures will be performed at both The Women's Hospital and Deaconess Gateway Hospital. View a listing of our surgeons that are fully credentialed to use the da Vinci Surgical System.
