Good Shepherd Health Care System was the first to introduce the da Vinci® Robotic Surgery System to the region in 2011.
Since then the da Vinci robotic surgery system has been proven to reduce scaring and aid in quicker recovery time for otherwise invasive surgical procedures for many of our community members.
With the da Vinci surgical system a physician is able to operate through fewer and smaller incisions. The tiny wristed instruments used during a surgical procedure are able to bend and rotate beyond the limitations of the human hand offering even greater precision.
Many surgical procedures can be performed using the da Vinci surgical system. The most commonly performed at Good Shepherd Health Care System include:
- General Surgery
- Gynecological Surgery
If you are in need of a surgical procedure talk with your doctor and see if da Vinci robotic surgery would be right for you.
