da Vinci® SI Robot-Assisted Surgery
Introducing the very latest in advanced surgical technology: the da Vinci® SI surgical robot. da Vinci® SI gives the surgeons at Middlesex Hospital the ability to perform the most complex and delicate procedures through very small surgical incisions with unmatched precision. But what’s most important to us is what the da Vinci® robot gives you: less pain, less scarring and less time away from the things that you love.
To make an evaluation appointment with one of our da Vinci surgeons:
- Sleep Apnea Surgery: 860-344-0055
- Weight Loss (Bariatric) Surgery: 860-347-9167
- GERD (Gastroesophogeal Reflux Disease) Surgery: 860-347-9167
- Gynecological Surgery: 860-358-2780
- Prostate Surgery: 860-347-8850
- Thoracic (lung) Surgery: 860-358-2780
Middlesex Hospital is rapidly growing its robot-assisted surgical program, and in the process of building one of the most extensive programs in the northeast. While most da Vinci surgery programs focus only on prostate surgery and some gynecological procedures, Middlesex Hospital is adding thoracic (lung) surgery, and pioneering a revolutionary new procedure to cure sleep apnea.
da Vinci® Surgical System: Precision Technology
The da Vinci® Surgical System is a complex robotic instrument combined with a high- performance camera vision system. The surgeon sits at a console and directs the movements of the da Vinci® robotic arms while visualizing the area through a powerful, high-definition digital camera.
Though it is often called a “robot,” da Vinci cannot act on its own. The surgery is performed entirely by your doctor.
da Vinci® robotic surgery is ideal for minimally invasive cancer surgery, to treat conditions as diverse as prostate cancer and lung cancer, gynecological cancer and other abnormalities, morbid obesity and sleep apnea. In short, the da Vinci® Surgical System combines robotic technology and surgical technique as never before, enabling your Middlesex Hospital surgeon to provide the most effective minimally invasive treatment option available.
da Vinci® Robot-Assisted Surgery: Treatment Benefits
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.
For patients, benefits include:
- Less pain
- Less blood loss
- Less scarring
- Shorter recovery time
- A faster return to normal daily activities
And most importantly, in many cases, the da Vinci® Surgical System provides better clinical outcomes.
