Robotic-assisted surgery is here! One of the many surgical options available at Northside Hospital. Potential benefits of the da Vinci® Surgical System for patients include:
- Reduced pain
- Lower risk of infection or complications
- Less scarring
- Shorter hospital stays
- Faster return to normal activities
Our robotics program will initially focus on the following product lines:
- General Surgery
- Thoracic Surgery
The da Vinci® Si Surgical System is designed to provide surgeons with enhanced capabilities, including high-definition 3D vision and a magnified view. Your doctor controls the da Vinci® System, which translates his or her hand movements into small, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside of the body. Though this is often called a “robot,” the da Vinci System cannot act on it own: Instead, the surgery is performed entirely by your physician.
Together, the da Vinci® Si Surgical System allows doctors to perform complex procedures. Most procedures are done through a few tiny openings but we also offer single site surgery which allows for a single incision in the belly button. As a result, you may be able to get back to life faster without the usually recovery following major surgery.
