Robotic Surgery

da Vinci Robotic Surgery

The highly trained staff surgeons at Carondelet  are proud to offer you a minimally invasive option for many complex surgeries. With the da Vinci robotic surgical system, we’re taking our Mission to heal to the edge — the cutting edge — of today’s effective and efficient technologies.

Advantages of Robotic Surgery

In the hands of highly capable and well-trained surgeons, da Vinci robotic surgery provides an excellent quality-of-life treatment option for your surgical needs.

Potential advantages include:

  • Less pain
  • Shorter recovery time
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Quicker return to normal activity
  • Lower risk of infection
  • Less blood loss

As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed, because surgery is always unique to the particular patient and procedure.

Robotic Surgery at Carondelet

Carondelet offers advanced minimally invasive surgery technology with the da Vinci Robotic Surgery System. With robotic-assisted surgery, instead of a large incision used in open surgery, da Vinci surgeons make a few small incisions, similar to laparoscopic surgery. However, the da Vinci System features a magnified 3-D high-definition vision system and special wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. As a result, da Vinci enables your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.

Our robotic surgery services include:

  • Gynecologic surgery, including hysterectomy, sacrocolpopexy (for pelvic organ prolapse) and myomectomy (fibroid removal)
  • Urologic surgery
  • Prostate cancer surgery and prostatectomy
  • Bladder cancer surgery
  • Kidney disorders surgery
