Robotic surgery at Excela Health brings high tech and human health to a new level of cooperation. With the da Vinci robotic surgery system, our surgeons can perform relatively complex operations with greater precision, better range of motion and increased visibility.

How the Robotic Surgical System Works

With da Vinci, the surgeon sees high definition, three-dimensional images from inside the body ten times better than the naked eye. The surgeon controls the da Vinci system, which translates the surgeon's hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside the body. These computer-guided instruments allow for more precise control than ever before. And while it is called a "robot", the system cannot act on its own; the surgeon always remains in total control.

The da Vinci surgical system can be used in a range of procedures:

  • General Surgery
  • Thoracic Surgery
  • Gynecologic Surgery
  • Urologic Surgery
  • Oncologic Surgery

Benefits of da Vinci Robotic Surgery

The da Vinci system has been used successfully throughout the world in thousands of procedures and for a variety of conditions. Because of the magnified field of vision and tiny instruments, among other factors, there are many potential benefits to this type of surgery that include:

  • Less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Fewer complications
  • Faster return to normal activities
  • Less scarring
  • Fewer transfusions
  • Less risk of infections
