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.
