Robotic Surgery

Minimally Invasive Precision

When you need surgery, consider the benefits that minimally invasive procedures offer. At Saint Vincent Hospital, you can find robotic surgery with the da Vinci Surgical System. Saint Vincent Hospital was an early adopter of the daVinci technology. The first robotic surgery was performed here in 2006.

Benefits of Robotic-Assisted Surgery

Robotic-assisted procedures offer you a less invasive technique than traditional, open surgery. With robotic surgery, incisions made on your body to perform surgery are much smaller than the cuts made from open surgery, usually offering better cosmetic results with minimal scarring.

Robotic surgery also may be able to offer you:

  • A shorter hospital stay
  • Less blood loss, pain and scarring
  • Smaller incisions
  • Increased surgical precision
  • Fewer complications
  • Less need for narcotic pain medicine
  • Faster recovery

Robotic-Assisted Surgery: How It Works

During robotic surgery, your surgeon will guide the technology using a 3-D high-definition vision system, special instruments and computer software for enhanced precision and control. da Vinci robotic surgery is currently available for use in:

  • General Surgery
  • Gynecologic surgery
  • Urogynecologic surgery
  • Urologic surgery
  • Thoracic surgery
  • Head and neck surgery
