daVinci® Surgical Robot

Research Medical Center has added the da Vinci® robotic surgical system to its comprehensive surgical services. This advanced technology, using four robotic arms takes surgery beyond the limits of the human hand and provides surgeons with greater precision, control and access to hard-to-reach areas, allowing complex operations to be performed through just a few small incisions.

An alternative to open surgery
With less pain and fewer side effects, the da Vinci® can provide smaller incisions, less blood loss, reduced risk of infection,shorter hospital stays and a quicker return to normal activities.

  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Reduced risk of infection
  • Smaller incisions
  • Less scarring and less blood loss
  • Quicker return to normal activities

Physician Benefits

  • Enhanced 3D, high-definition vision of operative field with up to 10x magnification
  • New optional dual console allows second surgeon to provide assistance
  • Superior visual clarity of tissue and anatomy
  • Surgical dexterity and precision far greater than even the human hand
