Robotic Surgery: The da Vinci Surgical System
CHI St. Luke's Health Memorial uses the da Vinci Surgical System, a robotic system that provides surgeons with an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy. Using robotic controls, which manipulate surgical instruments at the operating table, a surgeon can precisely maneuver instruments allowing experienced surgeons a wider degree of motion to perform an operation. Urologists at CHI St. Luke's Health Memorial have special expertise in minimally invasive surgery that results in faster recovery than conventional surgery.
CHI St. Luke's Health Memorial is the first hospital in Texas to acquire the da Vinci High Definition Robotic Surgery System, and the only hospital in the area to boast two surgical robotic systems.
The Benefits of Minimally Invasive Surgery
The da Vinci High Definition Robotic System is helping to improve clinical outcomes and redefine standards of care.
- Reduced trauma to the body
- Reduced blood loss and need for transfusions
- Less post-operative pain and discomfort
- Less risk of infection
- Shorter hospital stay
- Faster recovery and return
