MidState Surgical Center - Robotic Surgery
Skilled surgeons. Amazing technology. Outstanding results.
Today, many complex conditions - from cancer to gynecologic issues to kidney conditions and more - can be treated with minimally invasive surgery using the da Vinci® Surgical System. This remarkable device includes a high-definition vision system (to enhance the surgeon's view of the surgery site), as well as advanced robotics, which assist your surgeon with great precision and control.
How da Vinci® Surgery is Different
The da Vinci® Surgical System is designed to provide surgeons with enhanced capabilities. A high-def 3-D vision system gives your surgeon a magnified and clearer view of the surgical site. Your surgeon controls the da Vinci® Surgical System, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of the tiny surgical instruments which are inserted into your body through small incisions. Though it is often called a "robot," da Vinci® cannot act on its own. The surgery is performed entirely by your doctor.
da Vinci® technology allows your doctor to perform complex procedures through just a few tiny openings. As a result, you will have...
- Significantly less pain
- Less blood loss and need for transfusion
- A shorter hospital stay
- A faster recovery and return to normal activities
- Smaller incisions resulting in minimal scarring
Treatment for a Variety of Conditions
Da Vinci® robotic-assisted surgery is used in many specialties, including but not limited to:
- General surgery for weight loss surgery, hernia repairs, and gallbladder removal
- Colorectal surgery for removal of tumors, or diseased tissue from diverticulitis or inflammatory bowel diseases
- Gynecologic surgery for hysterectomies, removal of endometriosis and uterine fibroids to control heavy uterine bleeding, and to repair uterine prolapse
- Urologic surgery for prostate removal, kidney surgery, or to repair urinary obstruction
- Thoracic surgery for treatment of lung cancers, and removal of the thymus gland and mediastinal masses
