Center for Robotic Surgery
As part of our commitment to providing technologically advanced treatment
options for patients in our community, Saint Clare’s offers robot-assisted
surgery. Through the use of the robotic technology of the
da Vinci ® Si Surgical System, our experienced, specially-trained surgeons offer a minimally invasive
option for complex surgical procedures.
This unique system combines advanced surgical instrumentation with 3-D
visualization and ergonomic comfort. The dual-control system allows for
greater collaboration of surgeons who perform robotic procedures and enhances
teaching opportunities. This system enables surgeons to be more precise,
advancing their technique and enhancing their capability to perform complex,
minimally invasive surgery. Saint Clare’s physicians perform a range
of procedures including urologic, gynecologic, urogynecologic, gynecologic
oncology, and general surgery.
Robotic surgery through the
da Vinci system is an effective, minimally invasive alternative to both open surgery
and laparoscopy – providing the benefit of the control of open procedures
with the minimal invasiveness of laparoscopy. With some of the major benefits
to patients including a shorter hospital stay, less pain, less risk of
infection, less blood loss, fewer transfusions, less scarring, faster
recovery and a quicker return to daily activities, there’s little
wonder why physicians and patients are turning to robotic technology.
