da Vinci®...Changing the Experience of Surgery at St. Mary's
St. Mary’s offers a multi-specialty robotics program in Evansville; surgeons at St. Mary’s perform gynecology, urology and colorectal procedures utilizing the next generation da Vinci SI surgical robotic technology.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a condition that may require surgery, you owe it to yourself to learn about all of your medical options, including the most effective, least invasive surgical treatments available.
The da Vinci® SI Surgical System offers next generational surgical robotic technology. These latest innovations in da Vinci surgical robot technology allow increased precision, safety and improved rates of recovery.
The da Vinci SI Surgical System at St. Mary’s is the most advanced surgical system platform.
In addition to improved control, the SI model offers increased comfort for surgeons, integrated technology and greater operating room efficiency. The new technology translates into many benefits for the patients including less pain, quicker recovery, shorter hospital stays, a lower rate of complications and excellent clinical outcomes.
St. Mary’s uses Fluorescence Imaging Technology.
Fluorescence imaging technology makes it possible for imaging during surgery which increases the safety of the procedure and increases precision. With the addition of the new imaging technology, which highlights the healthy tissues, even less viable tissue is removed. Oftentimes, surgical times are shortened which decreases the time of constricted blood flow, as well as tissue and blood loss.
The da Vinci SI Surgical System provides surgeons with an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy, putting a surgeon's hands at the controls of a state-of-the-art robotic platform. The da Vinci SI Surgical System enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision. It is important to know that surgery with da Vinci does not place a robot at the controls; your surgeon is controlling every aspect of the surgery with the assistance of the da Vinci robotic platform.
- Significantly less pain
- Less blood loss
- Less scarring
- Shorter recovery time
- A faster return to normal daily activities
- And, in many cases, better clinical outcomes
While clinical studies support the effectiveness of the da Vinci® System when used in minimally invasive surgery, individual results may vary. Surgery with the da Vinci Surgical System may not be appropriate for every individual. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits.
