Robotic Surgery

Surgical skill meets leading-edge technology.

  • Robotic surgeons with the Da Vinci surgical system

    Robotic Surgery LogoMemorial University Medical Center is proud to offer the da Vinci Si Surgical System for complex surgical procedures.

    With the da Vinci Si Surgical System, a highly trained surgeon controls a state-of-the-art robotic platform. The platform mimics the surgeon’s hand movements through tiny instruments that work inside the body. This enables the surgeon to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions (1 to 2 centimeters), with unmatched precision. For the patient, the benefits may include:

    • Less pain
    • Less blood loss
    • Smaller scars
    • Less risk of infection
    • Less risk of injury to surrounding organs and nerves
    • Shorter hospital stay
    • Faster recovery and return to normal activities
    • Better clinical outcomes

    The da Vinci Si gives surgeons a high-definition, 3-D, magnified view of the surgical site, allowing for increased precision, versatility, and control in highly complex surgical procedures. Though it is often called a “robot,” the da Vinci Si cannot act on its own. Instead, the surgery is performed entirely by a surgeon with the assistance of skilled nurses, surgical assistants, and technicians. Meet our robotic surgery team.
