Da Vinci Surgical

State-of-the-art da Vinci Robotic Surgical System is implemented at SRHC

Salina Regional Health Center offers minimally invasive surgery with the da VinciĀ® Surgical System. The da Vinci Surgical System combines computer and robotic technologies with the skills of a surgeon to create a new category of surgical treatment. The da Vinci allows the physician a highly-magnified, 3D view of the tissue being operated on, providing greater accuracy of the instrumentation. Procedures are more minimally invasive which translates to patients enjoying quicker recovery times, less tissue trauma at the incision sites, smaller incisions, fewer days in the hospital, and less pain at the incision site.

The da Vinci Surgical System is an alternative to both open surgery and traditional laparoscopy, allowing surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with greater precision and superior visualization.

The da Vinci is used for:

  • Colon surgeries
  • Gynecology surgeries
  • hernia surgeries
  • Hysterectomies
  • Lung procedures
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Parathyroid surgeries
  • Procedures to diagnose and treat some types of infertility
  • Treatments for endometriosis
  • Urology surgeries

The surgeon operates while seated comfortably at a console viewing a 3D image of the surgical field. The surgeon's fingers grasp the master controls below the display, with hands and wrists naturally positioned relative to his or her eyes. The system seamlessly translates the surgeon's hand, wrist and finger movements into precise, real-time movements of surgical instruments inside the patient.
