Franciscan Health utilizes The da Vinci Surgical System for robotic-assisted surgeries. The da Vinci Surgical System puts a surgeon's hands at the controls of a state-of-the-art robotic surgery tool. The result is one of the most effective, least invasive surgical treatments available.
The da Vinci® Surgical System enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate minimally invasive procedures for men and women, getting them back to their lives in less time. The daVinci® robot enables our surgeons to operate at a 3-D console away from the surgical field. The procedure allows for excellent 3-D surgical viewing, improving the ability of the surgeon. Robotic-assisted surgery is an effective and far less invasive alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy. With the assistance of the da Vinci® Surgical System, surgeons can now operate using only 1-2 centimeter incisions and utilize greater precision and control than ever before. da Vinci® can help surgeons minimize the pain and risk associated with surgery while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.
The da Vinci® Surgical System has many potential benefits to patients including optimally desired outcomes.
It is important to know that da Vinci® Surgery does not place a robot at the controls; your surgeon is always in control of every aspect of the surgery with the assistance of the da Vinci® robotic surgical system.
