If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a condition that may require surgery, you owe it to yourself to learn about all of your medical options, including the most effective, least invasive surgical treatments available.
The da Vinci Surgical System provides surgeons with an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy, putting a surgeon's hands at the controls of a state-of-the-art robotic platform. Though it is often called a “robot,” da Vinci cannot act on its own and the surgery is performed entirely by a doctor.
The da Vinci system enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision. For the patient, benefits may include:
- Significantly less pain
- Less blood loss
- Less scarring
- Shorter recovery time
- A faster return to normal daily activities
- And in many cases, better clinical outcomes
At Parkview, we have a team of expert surgeons who have been using this technology for many years. da Vinci procedures are performed at Parkview Hospital in Fort Wayne, Ind., serving patients from northeast Indiana, southeast Michigan, and northwest Ohio. By providing da Vinci surgical options for hysterectomies, prostatectomies, nephrectomies and cardiothoracic procedures, our surgeons are here to help get you back to your life after surgery faster than ever before.
