More Successful Robotic Surgery Procedures. Better Outcomes and Faster Recovery.
The skilled and experienced surgeons of St. Luke’s have been using the da Vinci Xi® Surgical System to successfully complete multiple surgical procedures, giving our patients better outcomes and faster recovery.
While the da Vinci® robot is the most advanced surgery system available, it requires the specific experience and knowledge of surgeons with precision surgical skills. That’s why St. Luke’s invests heavily in the ongoing education and training of our surgical teams.
The da Vinci Xi® Surgical System is used with great success at St. Luke’s Hospital for gynecologic, urologic, general, and vascular surgery procedures.
Numerous general surgery procedures can be completed with better outcomes and shorter recovery times. These include appendectomy, gall bladder, hernias and scar-less gallbladder surgery, and many others.
Open gynecological surgery usually means wide incisions, extensive pain, long recovery times, heavy pain medication, risk of infection, and significant blood loss. Hysterectomies and other gynecological surgeries performed with the da Vinci Xi® Surgical System offer many benefits, including better outcomes, less blood loss and pain, lower risk of infection, and faster recovery.
The da Vinci Xi® Surgical System allows our surgeons to perform prostatectomy procedures safely – and with great precision – for better outcomes and faster recovery.
Surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome is one case in which the small, precise instruments of the da Vinci Xi® Surgical System excel. Using the micro-instruments of the system, the surgeon can safely and exactly remove the compressive and cervical bands of the scalene muscle to relieve pressure and alleviate discomfort and numbness.
Only what’s best for you.
With any surgery, it’s important to discuss all your treatment options as well as the associated risks and benefits with your physician. If your physician has recommended surgery, be sure to ask if one of the latest robotic procedures at St. Luke’s Hospital is right for you. Rest assured, your St. Luke’s surgeon will advise you on the best surgical options for your situation.
