For Patients




Cardiovascular Surgery

If your doctor recommends surgery to treat a cardiac condition, you may be a candidate for da Vinci® Surgery.

Using the most advanced technology available, da Vinci Surgery provides your doctor with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.

Because your doctor performs da Vinci Surgery through a few tiny incisions between the ribs, splitting your breastbone and ribcage is avoided.

The da Vinci Surgical System provides surgeons and their patients with a minimally invasive treatment option — often even for complex cases.

Patients may experience the following benefits with a da Vinci robotic-assisted cardiovascular surgery:

  • Lower risk of major cardiac event during first year after surgery.

  • Less blood loss and need for blood transfusions.

  • Less time in intensive care.

  • Lower rate of major complications.

  • Shorter hospital stay.

  • Faster recovery and return to normal daily activities.



General Surgery Procedures

If you are suffering from any of the following conditions, your surgeon may recommend da Vinci® Surgery. It is minimally invasive, using state-of-the-art robotic surgical technology that translates the surgeon's hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of the instruments.

Da Vinci Surgery offers patients the following benefits:

Gallbladder removal

  • Single incision gallbladder removal thru umbilicus.
  • Minimal scarring.
  • Minimal pain.
  • Less blood loss.
  • Fast recovery.
  • Short hospital stay.
  • High patient satisfaction.

Colon surgery

  • Allows more complex colon resections to be performed with small incisions.

Gastroesophageal abnormalities

  • Precise dissection and repair of large hiatal hernias and other abnormalities of esophagus and stomach.

Hysterectomy

If your doctor has recommended a hysterectomy to treat your condition, you may be a candidate for da Vinci® Surgery.

Until recently, surgery for most gynecologic conditions was performed using a large abdominal incision. The da Vinci System enables your doctor to perform a minimally invasive hysterectomy with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control, requires only a few tiny incisions and enables you to get back to your life faster.

Patients may experience the following benefits with a da Vinci robotic-assisted hysterectomy:

  • Less pain.

  • Fewer complications.

  • Less blood loss.

  • Shorter hospital stay.

  • Low risk of wound infection.

  • Quicker recovery and return to normal activities.



Prostatectomy

The surgeons at Southcoast Hospitals use the da Vinci® to perform complex urological surgeries such as a radical prostatectomy.

A da Vinci Prostatectomy is a minimally invasive, robotic-assisted surgical procedure that removes the cancerous prostate gland and related structures.

The da Vinci System enables surgeons to perform complex and dedicated procedures through tiny incisions with unmatched vision, precision, dexterity and control.

Patients who have a da Vinci robotic-assisted prostatectomy may experience these benefits:

  • Significantly less pain.

  • Less blood loss.

  • Fewer complications.

  • Shorter hospital stay.

  • Faster return to normal daily activities.
