Why Choose Robotic Surgery at Saint Clare's?
At the Center for Robotic Surgery, Saint Clare's has deployed the latest in robotics for minimally invasive surgery with the $2 million da Vinci ® Si Dual Console Surgical System at Saint Clare's Hospital/Denville. This unique system, from the world's leading innovator of robotic surgery technology, couples advanced surgical instrumentation with 3-D visualization and ergonomic comfort and brings the future of surgery to Saint Clare's today. The new dual-control da Vinci Si Surgical System allows for greater collaboration for surgeons who perform robotic procedures and enhances teaching opportunities at Saint Clare’s. Saint Clare’s is the first New Jersey hospital to purchase this system with simulation technology, allowing physicians to refine their skills.
The da Vinci 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, as well as a host of highly specialized procedures such as radical cystectomy, sacrocolpopexy, partial nephrectomy, myomectomy, and radical hysterectomy.
A Revolutionized Surgical Experience
Robotic surgery through the da Vinci system revolutionizes the surgical experience for patients. It 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. In fact, over 600 robotic surgeries have been performed at Saint Clare’s since the first case in March 2007.
