Proven Robotic Surgery Procedures
Robotic surgery is a major step forward in the advancement of surgical techniques that provide better outcomes and faster recovery. The St. Luke’s surgical department is equipped with the most current version of the da Vinci® ® surgical robot and surgeons with precision surgical skills.General Robotic Surgery
The da Vinci® ® Surgical System is used with great success at St. Luke’s Hospital for gynecologic, urologic, general, and vascular surgery procedures. These procedures include appendectomy, gall bladder, hernias and scar-less gallbladder surgery.
General Robotic Surgery
The da Vinci® surgical robot provides a three-dimensional, high definition view with 10x magnification. With it, surgeons can see details within a fraction of a millimeter. Various general surgery procedures can be completed with better outcomes and shorter recovery times.
Vascular Robotic Surgery
Surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome is one case in which the small, precise instruments of the da Vinci® Surgical System excel. Using the micro-instruments of the system, your surgeon can safely and precisely remove the compressive and cervical bands of the scalene muscle in order to relieve pressure and alleviate discomfort and numbness.
Urologic Robotic Surgery
The da Vinci® Surgical System allows our surgeons to perform your prostatectomy safely – and with great precision for a better outcome and faster recovery.
Gynecological Robotic Surgery
Gone are the days of open surgery, which often come with wide incisions, pain, long recovery (usually six weeks), heavy pain medication, risk of infection, and significant blood loss. Hysterectomies performed with the da Vinci® Surgical System offer many benefits over other types of hysterectomies.
If your physician has recommended surgery, be sure to ask if robotic surgery at St. Luke’s Hospital is right for you.
