Thanks to the state-of-the-art da Vinci® Surgical System, surgeons at Providence have an effective alternative to traditional open surgery. This technology allows surgeons to operate with unmatched precision, using incisions about the size of a dime. Better yet, da Vinci robotic-assisted surgery can minimize your post-surgical pain, reduce complications and shorten your recovery time.
The surgeon maintains control of the entire procedure and simply relies on da Vinci for assistance. The surgeon sits comfortably at a console, viewing a 3D image of the surgical field. The system’s controls seamlessly translate the surgeon’s hand, wrist and finger movements into precise, real-time movements of instruments inside the patient. Doctors must undergo special training to operate with da Vinci.
